The Bistronomy movement is led by young chefs who are creating clever food without the stuffiness of high end restaurants, this book brings the best of Bistronomy together, with numerous Australian up and coming chefs.

The new wave of cuisine represented by the bistronomy movement is led by young chefs who create phenomenally clever food without the pomp and circumstance of high-end restaurants. This is haute cuisine for the people -- served in convivial surrounds, where food and community, rather than the thread count of the tablecloth, are what matters. Through recipes and accompanying narrative, this energy-filled book cpatures the vital elements of bistronomy: the democratic spirit of generous, affordable hospitality, together with the imaginative reworking of classic fare built on quality ingredients and technique. Bistronomy is premised on sharing, and author Katrina Meynink embraces that concept by offering more than 100 recipes generously contributed by thirty Australian and international chefs.

Comments about Bistronomy:

I'm into interesting food and new trends, especially from worldwide chefs so this book appealed to me. On first glance I was a bit disappointed because it didn't wow me. But I had a closer look, reading each of the recipes, and I was impressed. There were new ideas and I'll definitely be cooking some of the recipes. Selecting books online can be difficult because you really need to see some example pages before you buy. As I can't get to a bookshop nearby, I have to buy according to the author or contributors. It's not always easy as I have to search until I can find a website that publishes a few example pages!
