Australia knows him as the cravat-wearing critic and hulking soulful judge on TV's crazily successful MasterChef Australia but it's his writing that has had the food world talking for the last ten years. Here are all his best stories and columns. A collection of Matt's irreverent, intelligent, and amusing adventures in food. This book will take you from the best restaurants in the world to grungy hole in the walls on the wrong side of town; from the ritual of a traditional pig annual kill to lunch at a Sikh temple in the suburbs; basically wherever the world's best food can be found. There are Matt's insightful interviews with some of the world's most influential food thinkers, romps across continents in search of the world's finest salt and sugars, and more than a few insights - from the compelling to ther completely bizarre - from the set of Australia's biggest TV show, MasterChef.
