Format: Paperback
My son in Australia had this book sent to me in the states. It's a luscious read, filled with the energy of the new Australian cuisine, with photography to match. I've since visited this fascinating country and left extremely well fed. It's as if the world decided to concentrate all its food energy into a few centers down under. I've been able to use a number of these recipes in my own cooking, but even more I've been able to adapt many of the ideas. But if you never cook from this book, it still makes a handsome volume for the coffee table.

An Perfect cook book April 3 2000
By Mark Bruyns - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is one of the nicest cook books i have ever seen, great pictures and recepies by the top chefs of the Australian cuisine. I am in the restaurant business and we can use most of the recepies very well. Thanks again.

Wide range of recipes and difficulty Aug. 6 2001
By Sam Hershey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent cookbook, providing a wide range of recipes with varied levels of difficulties ranging from the simple to the difficult. I've tried a few of the more complex ones with great success. There are some terms which might be a bit unfamiliar, but otherwise, a very nice cookbook. I highly recommend the naked raviolis with spinach.

Hardly Australian cuisine Dec 26 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What an unfortunate book from authors who should know better. The book could far better be called 'In celebration of the New International Cuisine' because I can't tell the difference between what the authors claim is Australian and what is often presented in up market and hotel restaurants in Tokyo, New York, LA, London, Dubai, Mumbai or Singapore. This 'nice' food book has little to contribute to its intended audience and certainly little to do with what Australian food is becoming - unique, authentic and characterised by a wide range of indigenous ingredients.

For anyone wanting to really know what Australian cuisine is all about, get the Dining Downunder Cookbook (order it through Amazon or find it online). Other related books on the topic are The Bushfood Handbook and Uniquely Australian, both by Vic Cherikoff.
