Surfing the Menuis based on the eight-part ABC Television cookery series of the same name. The focus is on the inspirational talents of new stars, Curtis Stone and Ben O'Donoghue - their recipes inspired by the produce around them, their unparalleled cooking skills and techniques, their camaraderie, and particularly their abilities to communicate their love of food and life. The book, like the television series, showcases Australia's magnificent and varied landscape and, most especially, the extraordinary range of world-class produce that has so inspired our internationally celebrated chefs. The book contains over 80 recipes inspired by the produce discovered while Ben and Curtis travelled around Australia during the filming of the series. Included are a range of starters, mains and puddings - all based on the freshest and finest ingredients. Gloriously illustrated in full colour, not only with beautifully photographed food shots taken by award-winning food photographer, Ben Dearnley, but also with a wealth of outstanding location shots specially commissioned during the filming of the television series. Surfing the Menupresents Australia and its food in ways we haven't seen before.
