Masterchef Australia co-judge Gary Mehigan lives and breathes food. When he's not working the stoves at his Maribyrnong Boathouse restaurant in Melbourne or talking about food on TV or social media, you'll find him breakfasting at a newly-opened cafe, trawling the growers' market for ingredients for dinner, or taking culinary sojourns to the countryside to seek out the finest regional produce.
This book is the result of Gary's ongoing food obsession: a collection of his favourite recipes garnered from thirty years in the industry. It includes treasured treats from his childhood in England, classics from his early cooking career in London, diverse dishes inspired by MasterChef Australia, as well as the comforting family meals he cooks for his wife and daughter at home. Here you'll find dishes such as Sticky braised pork ribs with lime, Braised lamb shanks with fregola, and Chocolate, sour cherry and hazelnut tarts, amongst many others. Gary also gives mini-masterclasses covering some of his favourite foods, such as bread, chillies and tomatoes.
All the easy-to-follow recipes in this book make the best of fresh, in-season ingredients, and are set to become your favourites too!
