What is it really like to work in a restaurant? What do chefs do when they are running out of the night's most popular dish? Do they really serve food that is on the turn? And how do they make it seem fresh? What happens to a restaurant when it gets a bad review? Australians are renowned for our passion for eating out and our cities boast some of the best restaurants in the world. But how many of us really have a sense of what goes on behind the scenes? In this hilarious book Matthew Evans draws on his many years of experience as both chef and restaurant reviewer to ridicule and revere, expose and acclaim the secrets behind one of the most lucrative and risky businesses in Australia. Part memoir, part expose, NEVER ORDER CHICKEN ON A MONDAY is as brilliant as it is brave - an inspiration for anyone stuck for conversation over dinner.

Matthew Evans

Matthew Evans is a former chef and food critic turned Tasmanian smallholder. He is the author of nine books on food, including the authoritative Real Food Companion, his autobiography Never Order Chicken on a Monday, and the recently co-authored Gourmet Farmer Deli Book

He writes regularly for Feast magazine, and he has recently finished filming the third series of the SBS television series Gourmet Farmer which will air on SBS on 14th March 2013.

Matthew’s other project is A Common Ground, an artisan Tasmanian foodstore he co owns with Nick Haddow, which also specialises in regional produce events.

Matthew is a strong believer in Real Food; food where the provenance is known and the producer valued. He believes in home cooking, using the seasons and your geography as the guide. It is his hope that more and more people will try to grow their own food (just start with parsley and go from there), or know exactly where their produce is coming from.
