The Adventure Cookbook: A Transformational Food Journey from the Australian Bush to the Vines of Provence
I enjoyed reading this Adventure Cookbook, the author is a great story teller. I like to read in Spanish most of the time, so when I read in English it has to be extremely entreating. So therefore I think this book is absolutely fascinating, when I started reading I could not stop until the end, I read the whole thing in one night. Never mind about "Eat, Love and Pray" . Sofia's book is much more entertaining, and at the same time I found the cook book to be loaded with easy to follow recipe instructions and descriptions. I work really long hours and I don't have time to cook for myself. As a single woman in the corporate world I also really related to Sofia when she wrote about her former career. This book was a real wake up call for me, it put my life in perspective. I highly recommended this book to all my friends for the fun, funny stories and for the healthy and original recipes.

I love Frommer's guides and this one delivers. I'm planning an independent trip for 4 to Australia and this guide has helped me tremedously in preparing an itinerary and negotiating and understanding travel to and within Australia. I've used it in company with Lonely Planet Sydney encounter and find I have more useful recommendations on hotels and itineraries in Frommers. I use both to work out the places to see and places to eat but I turn to Frommers for an understanding of what I may like to see and do. I may be tempted by the high end suggestions, but it is helping me find the budget options that fit my travel expectations. I'm an over 50 traveler who likes to find value and comfort -- even if you have to pay a bit more for it.
Bill's Sydney Food
"In celebration of 10 years in print comes an updated collector's edition of Bill Granger's bestselling first cookbook Bills Sydney Food. With new iconic Sydney photography and a fresh design in a new hardback format this title is sure to capture a new audience, tempt die-hard fans who will need a revised copy and prove the perfect gift or souvenir for visitors to Sydney. Bills Sydney Food contains all the must-have recipes from Bill's original restaurant in inner-city Darlinghurst - the signature scrambled eggs, ricotta hotcakes with honeycomb butter, and even chocolate chip cookies."
Bil's food is fantastic and fresh in this cook book. The photography is as delicious as his recipes. The recipies are easy to follow and certainly spectacular to eat. it's great to be able to replicate the dishes i ate at his cafe with such ease and without having to go to gourmet stores to buy the ingredients or spend a fortune on them. This book is beautiful on your coffee table or just to look through even if you dont cook, but trust me the ricotta pancakes with honeycomb butter, maple syrup and bananas are sublime.
