Author(s): Matt Wilkinson
This beautifully illustrated book will appeal to vegetarians, but it is not a vegetarian cookbook. Among the more than 90 recipes are plenty of dishes incorporating meat, but Mr Wilkinson's favourite vegetables are the true stars.
Yorkshire-born, Melbourne-based chef Matt Wilkinson is passionate about food in season, farmers markets and local producers. As the former head chef at award-winning Melbourne restaurant Circa, The Prince, Wilkinson ushered in an era of organics and garden-to-kitchen rustic fine dining. He now owns and runs Pope Joan in Melbourne's inner northern suburbs, which has a cult following for its fresh, seasonal breakfast, brunch and lunch dishes.
