In Simply Good Food, renowned Australian chef Neil Perry presents a collection of the simple, produce-driven recipes he likes to cook for friends and family. The featured dishes are influenced by many different cuisines, but they are all an expression of Neil Perry's belief in cooking with top-quality, sustainably produced, seasonal ingredients. The recipes illustrate just how easy and enjoyable it is to cook fresh, healthy food at home.
In this evocatively photographed and elegantly styled book you will find a dish for any kind of gathering, from an intimate family meal to a dinner party. Many of the recipes can be prepared either as individual dishes or enjoyed as part of a shared table, and Neil Perry has grouped together Mexican, Asian-inspired and Mediterranean banquet suggestions. With 105 recipes encompassing everything from a small but perfectly formed selection of cocktail recipes through to chicken with pancetta, Thai-style squid salad and raspberry and champagne jelly with spiced berry compote, Simply Good Food has your kitchen table covered.
