Books for cooks and health
The Dining Downunder Cookbook by Vic Cherikoff and Benjamin Christie contains the recipes from the series Dining Downunder, a 13 part TV series which aired in 48 countries. For more on this series, visit the Dining Downunder website.
Unfortunately, at this stage, our best selling book, The Bushfood Handbook is now out of print. However, some chapters are in the process of being released as e-books. Watch this space.
The book, Wild Foods; Looking back 60,000 years for clues to our future survival, is the distillation of a lifetime’s work on the food and medicinal values of wild foods as well as insights into the traditional land management practices of some of the 600 clans who once lived throughout the entire continent.
Lastly, please note that for domestic sales in Australia, we add GST to the given cost of non-food items such as our books.
Accompanying the popular Australian TV series, Dining Downunder™, The Dining Downunder Cookbook is a journey of three chefs across Australia, looking at our contemporary Australian cuisine, cooking with indigenous ingredients and sharing their passion of an authentic Australian food style.
The sub-title for my newest book is: Looking back 60,000 years for clues to our future survival. Are the foods we source from supermarkets or even growers’ markets really providing the nutritional requirements we need to maintain good health? Wild Foods explores the consequences of eating a modern diet sprayed with pesticides, engineered for distribution and lacking in essential dietary fibre, proteins and micro-nutrients. You will find how wild foods can correct the imbalance and help us reach our ideal health.
