by Peter Gilmore
Order Organum by December 31st and go in the draw to win a dinner for two at Peter Gilmore’s award-winning restaurant Quay, at The Rocks in Sydney, valued at $520!
The dinner includes a 4 course menu with wines to match and is valid until the end of 2015. Please note: subject to reservation availability. Flights and accommodation are not included.
While there is a layered complexity to world-renowned chef Peter Gilmore’s ethereal – yet grounded – cuisine, his philosophy of cooking is relatively simple. Just four elements are required to create perfect unison in a dish: nature, texture, intensity and purity. In his new book, Peter invites the reader to share in his private obsession with nature – when not in the kitchen at Sydney’s Quay restaurant, he is working in his experimental garden where he grows a huge array of edible plant species.
Each component of a plant, from sweet, earthy roots to bitter fronds and fragrant blossoms, is potentially destined for inclusion in one of the 40 exquisite dishes featured here. Peter also introduces us to the many influences on his cooking, and to the people who grow, catch and source key ingredients. Images include intensely beautiful food and ingredient shots, as well as producers and produce photographed on location.
