Family, friends, food and fishing: these are the other passions of a man known best for his skill on the cricket ground. The Matthew Hayden Cookbook showcases these passions in stories and recipes gathered from his grandmother's table to exotic locations such as India, Sri Lanka and the Caribbean. A keen cook, Matthew has seized the opportunities his career in cricket has given him, to travel and learn about the cuisines of different cultures. Always open to learning, tasting and meeting new people, Matt shares these experiences in stories which reflect his outlook on life, and recipes that are delicious but easy to whip up at home. Each recipe is accompanied by a photograph of the finished dish, and there is inspiration here for cricket fans and foodies alike.
