Author(s): Matt Moran
Thirty years ago, when Matt Moran first started cooking in commercial kitchens, lettuce meant iceberg, fish was always sold frozen and there was one variety of tomato - maybe two. Australia is now the envy of the world for its climate and range of produce, and is a food-lover's destination, spurred on by generations of keen home cooks. The recipes in Matt Moran's Australian Food span the country food traditions of regional Australia to the rugged coastline, which offers amazing fresh seafood. From the best slow-roasted lamb shoulder to an iconic passionfruit cheesecake, anyone who has spent time in Australia will find something in this collection to which they can nod their head and smile, recognizing a recipe that is a favourite in their household.
With over 30 stellar years in the food industry behind him, a plethora of awards to his name and as the tour de force behind some of Australia's most celebrated dining establishments (Aria, Chiswick and North Bondi Fish, to name just a few), it's safe to say that Matt Moran is an Australian food icon. At the heart of every one of his endeavours lies a passion for fresh, seasonal produce and simplicity in ingredients. Matt is a frequent contributor to food publications globally and he has been a presenter, judge and host on many much-loved Australian and international TV shows, most recently on the top-rating Great Australian Bake-off. This is his fifth cookbook.
