I tell you what, if food can be sexy, Frank Camorra knows how to make it sway. In that oh-so-enticing way that Spaniards have of making you forget the time of day or things to do... No, I must focus. In this book Camorra visits his extended family in Spain to get some inspiration on how to eat and live - and lucky for us he brings it back to Australia to share!
