The Gourmet Farmer Deli Book
Nick Haddow, Ross O’Meara and Matthew Evans
Fullers Bookshop, TONIGHT, 5.30pm
For immediate release:
The Gourmet Famer Deli Book with Nick Haddow, Matthew Evans and Ross O’Meara will be launched at Fullers Bookshop TONIGHT at 5.30pm by singer and vocal specialist Maria Lurighi.
The food is being created by flavour specialist, Jo Cook and the wine is all Tasmanian.
This book follows on from the Gourmet Farmer television show – and asks the questions ‘why would you make your own sausages, cure your own ham, pickle your own fish or
preserve your own vegetables?” – and answers it with simplicity: “because it tastes better.”
The book: celebrates the artisan process in making items typically found in your local deli – from cheese and cream to cured and smoked meats to pickled fish and vegetables. And secondly it provides simple, delicious recipes where those ingredients are the stars of simple, rustic, flavoursome dishes. This beautifully photographed book celebrates the way we used to cook and food how it
used to taste.
The authors: food writer and former restaurant critic Matthew Evans left Sydney to run a smallholding in Tasmania. He runs a market stall with former chef Ross O’Meara selling salami, rillettes and smallgoods made from free range pigs they breed themselves. Cheese maker Nick Haddow owns and runs Bruny Island Cheese Company, south of Hobart. Nick Haddow has recently been awarded a Churchill Fellowship.
