From the Earth
A celebration of the diverse world of heirloom vegetables by one of the most acclaimed chefs in Australia, Peter Gilmore.
Peter Gilmore is one of the most acclaimed chefs in Australia. In this book, he celebrates approximately 50 unique and exotic heirloom vegetables and plants through the seasons. Some he sources on Sydney’s northern beaches and grows in his experimental home garden before experimenting them in his recipes. Others come from suppliers he has developed close and lasting relationships with over his 15 years as executive chef at Quay restaurant. “From the Earth” includes full colour photography by Brett Stevens alongside botanical illustrations for each vegetable, as well as key information, traditional cooking uses, anecdotal stories and a recipe inspired by the vegetable, featured in one of the author’s restaurants.
