Spotlighting a passionate cook and gardener, this biographical account explores the home of Sunday Reed and her husband John, emphasizing the importance of home-grown produce, seasonal cooking, and a communal table. Showcasing the Reeds as two of AustraliaÍs most significant art benefactors, this study investigates this coupleÍs 15 acre property, which they settled on in 1935 and eventually transformed from a run-down dairy farm into a fertile creative space for artists such as Sidney Nolan, Albert Tucker, Joy Hester, and Charles Blackman. Richly illustrated with art, several previously unpublished photographs, and exquisite recipes from SundayÍs personal collection, this is a behind-the-scenes look at a compelling and complex locale.
