Forty-three ingredients, eighty-six recipes and two of Australia's best-loved chefs trading skills and comparing talents.

Go behind the scenes and into the kitchens of George Calombaris and Gary Mehigan. Discover their favourite ingredients – from saffron to salmon – and the art of pulling together unforgettable dishes. Learn the techniques of two consummate professionals and MasterChef Australia judges: the art of making a great souffle, melt-in-the-mouth ravioli and the perfect panna cotta. Then join the boys at home as they reveal the simple pleasures of family favourites given a restaurant renovation, such as hearty braised beef and chocolate mousse.

Inspiring, instructive and loads of fun, Your Place or Mine? celebrates good produce, great cooking and a legendary kitchen friendship.

Foreword

I first met George and Gary some years ago at the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, where we were each hosting master classes and book signings. Their enthusiasm was infectious and I thoroughly enjoyed watching them strut their stuff. I subsequently led a team of contestants on MasterChef Australia, where George and Gary continue their professional collaboration, guiding, educating and challenging the contestants to reach a level beyond amateurs.

They are both chefs with successful restaurants. They know how to judge and execute fine food, and push boundaries without being wild or gimmicky. This cookbook is full of yummy flavours, with dishes suitable for every day as well as special moments. George and Gary love and respect their ingredients, so therefore keep them pure and uncluttered. This is cooking as it should be – taking the best ingredients, then treating them with care and relishing the results.

This book will no doubt fly off the shelves.

Happy eating and good cooking.
