Tales and Recipes from a Travelling Cook
As a champion of 'real' food, Iain understands the need to produce delicious hearty meals fast, every night of the week. And he's not afraid of meat, of fire, and of spices so there's a lot of grilling and barbecuing with flavours from faraway places to complement the traditional Aussie outdoor feast. The recipes are easy, the ingredients are readily available and the book itself is robust and user-friendly.
