Will and Steve - Home Cook, Aspiring Chef Will Stuart + Steve Flood
Home Cook, Aspiring Chef contains more than 100 recipes born of Will and Steve’s passion for freshness, flavour and good food. Born of their English heritage and their appreciation for Australian produce their innovative twists on traditional and time-honoured techniques result in some spectacular recipes suitable for both home cooks and aspiring chefs.
The book features six chapters:
Brunch, Soups and Sarnies
Home Cook, Aspiring Chef
Sides and Salads
Sweets and Desserts.
The Home Cook, Aspiring Chef chapter showcases Will and Steve’s different approach to food. Using the same ingredients to create two contrasting dishes, Will’s hearty but beautifully executed home cooking contrasts with Steve’s meticulous, elegant gourmet dishes, showcasing different techniques and approaches with the same produce.
Each chapter also features a masterclass with a detailed focus on an important technique, such as pickling, making parfait or their signature scotch eggs.
Beautifully photographed by Australia’s leading photographer, William Meppem, the flavour-packed originality of these recipes make this the must-have cookbook this year.
They’ve been best friends since their sons started high school together, and Felicity, Emma and Neve share everything … or so they thought.
But Flick’s seemingly perfect marriage hides a shocking secret which, with one word, threatens to destroy her and her family’s happiness. Emma is in denial about a potential custody battle, her financial constraints, the exhaustion she can’t seem to shake off and the inappropriate feelings she has for her boss. And single mum Neve is harbouring a secret of her own; a secret that might forever damage her close-knit relationship with her son.
When the tight hold they have each kept on their secrets for years begins to slip, they must face the truth. Even if that truth has the power to hurt the ones they love, and each other.
City girl Paula married her lovely farmer, the only problem is he comes with a farm… Another heart-warming rural romance from the queen of Australian story-telling, Tricia Stringer.
Self-reliant Sydney girl, Paula, is looking forward to a new life in the country. Just married to sheep farmer Dan Woodcroft she can’t wait to escape her protective family and exchange her busy existence for a new life down on the farm in rural South Australia.
But life on the farm proves rather different to what she was expecting. Why does everyone talk about the weather all the time? Why does no one seem worried by the mice plague? And how is she supposed to feed all those shearers?
With Dan’s brusque Aunt Rowena to contend with, his gorgeous ex-girlfriend showing up with a grudge, and communication between her and Dan breaking down, Paula begins to question whether she can cope — is the life of a farmer’s wife is really for her? Forecast: stormy weather.
From Darwin to Pearl Harbour, Sydney to Papua New Guinea, a compelling story of courage, honour and a great love set against the epic backdrop of the Second World War.
Eighteen-year-old Junie Wallace is a smart girl and, with her two brothers away at war and her third brother just killed in action, she knows there is only one way to save the family farm for her grieving parents. Unfortunately, that solution involves marrying the unscrupulous Ernest, and breaking the heart of the young drover she loves, Michael.
From the explosive battles of the Pacific campaign to the desperate fighting in the Papuan New Guinea rainforest; the dancehall gaiety of Sydney’s Trocadero to the terror of the Darwin bombings, this epic family saga brings home the importance of mateship and of fighting for what you believe in, even when impossible odds seem stacked against you, even when all seems lost…
Worth Fighting For is a resounding testament to the enduring force of love: a reminder of what can be achieved if you draw on your reserves of courage and listen to the truth in your heart.
