About the Author
Recipe writer, cook, stirrer and passionate foodie, Matthew Evans was originally a chef by trade. Matthew has since become a taste junkie by desire. In a move akin to Darth Vader's, he crossed from the dark heart of restaurant kitchens to the even darker side, to become a restaurant reviewer for most of the past decade. Originally trained in Canberra, Australia, Matthew has also worked in Sydney and Melbourne and written about restaurants and producers from across the country.

Comments about The Real Food Companion:
At 575 pages, this is no lightweight book. More than recipes, it is also about the origins of our food, and what to look for when buying your ingredients. The photogarphs are inspiring and beautiful, adding a richness to the text. If I were to choose a single word to describe it that word would be 'Rich'. I think that it is worth the price, and I am glad that I bought it. My partner has bought one for her daughter, a first-class cook.
