235 recipes gathered from a lifetime of loving food.
Bon vivant and ABC TV personality, the gregarious Ian Parmenter takes a delight in good food and wine - in cooking the former and producing the latter, as well as in eating and drinking both. As presenter on Consuming Passions for a decade, he showed how much fun food can be.
In this new cookbook, Ian brings together 235 of his favourite recipes - sides, starters and nibbly bits, entrees, mains and dessert - which rely on his trademarks of simplicity and fresh ingredients. He shares his kitchen tips, dispenses sensible advice on food preparation and storage, and of course he provides some of his 'most requested' - like his recipe for Ego Noodles, a favourite dish of his friend and colleague, Poh Ling Yeow.
Ian Parmenter started Consuming Passions in 1992, his first on-camera appearance. He completed 10 series - 450 shows - which screened in Australia and several other countries, including the UK, Singapore and Ireland. He has produced 11 recipe collections and three 'serious' books, Cooking with Passion, Consuming Passions and Sheer Bottled Bliss: A Margaret River Memoir, which won an Australian Award for Literary Excellence in 2004.
