Along with Gigi, an intrepid vintage VW Beetle, MasterChef stars Dan Churchill and Hayden Quinn travel from the west coast, to the north, and then to the east coast of Australia to explore what's cooking and the incredible produce of each spectacular region -- and being surfer dudes, to catch some waves too!
In this full colour, 240-page cooking and travel extravaganza, cook with Dan and Hayden's inspiring recipes and enjoy the colour, life and tastes that the west, north and east of our great country has to offer. From Shark Bay thorugh to Wooramel, Carnarvon, Exmouth and Broome in Western Australia, to Kununurra and Katherine in the Northern Territory, to Cairns and Townsville, The Whitsundays and Bundaberg in Queensland, and finally Noosa Toowoomba and Bryon Bay in New South Wales, their journey is showcased with stunning photography of each lush location and the mouthwatering produce and recipes they discover and cook with along the way.
In association with the ABC, the television series of Surfing the Menu will be aired in early 2016.
