This is Donna Hay's biggest and best cook book yet.

For Isabella Beeton in 1861 it was Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management, for Stephanie Alexander in 1996 it was The Cook's Companion and for Maggie Beer in 2007 it was Maggie's Harvest. These books went onto become bestsellers, staples in every home; they were the one-stop recipe books that defined these authors' work and became essential everyday reference books for their time.

Now in 2013, Australia's leading cookbook author Donna Hay reveals her landmark book, The New Classics, a definitive collection of classic recipes for every modern cook from Donna Hay magazine. This is the ultimate Donna Hay cookbook, the book that has everything that you ever wanted to know how to cook. Absolutely up to the minute, it contains all our old family favourites as well as new delights, everything from beef and ale pies to dulce de leche, from mac n' cheese to macarons, it's exactly the food that we want to cook and eat NOW, all written in Donna's trademark simple, clear and easy way.

A gorgeously rich and deluxe hardback book with stunning finishes and embellishments - ideal for a Christmas gift, coffee table, kitchen bench or bookshelf - it features stunning photography and hundreds of mouthwatering recipes.

About the Author

At the age of eight, Donna Hay skipped into a kitchen, picked up a mixing bowl and never looked back. She moved to the world of magazine test kitchens and publishing, where she established her trademark style of simple, smart and seasonal recipes all beautifully put together and photographed. It is food for every cook, every food lover, every day and every occasion. Her unique style turned her into an international food-publishing phenomenon as a bestselling author of 20 cookbooks, publisher of donna hay magazine, newspaper columnist, and creator of a homewares and food range.

            Donna Hay

Each issue of the magazine has over 384,000 Australian readers*, has subscribers in 82 countries around the world and is the top-selling international food magazine in American bookstores Barnes & Noble and Borders.

            Donna also has a popular weekly food column in the Sunday editions of News Limited newspapers around Australia and The New Zealand Herald, reaching over seven million people each week. She is also a regular contributor to UKâ??s leading lifestyle magazine, Living etc.
