James Beard

So easy to follow and so well written, and so amusing, you can hear his voice on every page. Plus, this is the only cook book in the world that doesn’t tell you to overcook lobster.

A game-changer if ever there was one. It set in motion a chain of events that led to meeting Marco many times. He is an extraordinary, complex creature and a great chef.

Margaret Fulton Cooking used to be Australia’s all-purpose, go-to cookbook. Now it’s Stephanie’s alphabetical, ingredient-driven reference manual, a book that should be on everybody’s shelf.

An American living in London who learned to love food in France changed the way the world cooked. Meeting him and being his friend was very important to me; a very charming and complicated and genuine man.

Kind of the White Heat of the noughties. Much of what we’re eating around the world started life here. Very conscientiously written, tested and researched.
