If you’ve ever aspired to writing a food blog, take food photographs, style food or just plain write - here’s your chance to found out how its done from Australia’s best blogger - all with some glorious food and a glass of wine.

Join us on Friday 30th May for an evening with renowned blogger Sneh Roy of the award-winning blog, Cook Republic and now author of Tasty Express released this month.

Sneh was recognised last year as Australia’s best blogger (not just food blogger!).

We’ll be chatting with Sneh about her career as a food blogger, her new cookbook (its rather delicious) her delicious inventive recipes, her food influences and her luscious photography - she shoots with a Canon 5D (all of which have earned her legions of devoted followers).

Sneh’s inspirations include the cosmopolitan eats of the urban food truck and inner city cafĂ©, the fresh variety of a lively market and the unforgettable aromas of her childhood in India. These influences are then turned into healthy often vegetarian or vegan friendly takes on comfort foods like tacos, flatbreads, veggie burgers, granola and froyo, plus a few irresistibly naughty treats.

Some of the wonderful dishes in Tasty Express include: Coconut Bircher Muesli, Carrot Cake Muffins, Kulfi Milk, Eggplant Lasagna Steaks, Kale Soup With Grilled Cheese, Brown Rice Biryani Salad, Quinoa Spice Croquettes, Sweet Potato And Pepita Burgers, Tofu And Cashew Curry, Burnt Butter Caramel Slice, Coconut Froyo and Gingerbread Tiramisu.

Argentinian Street Food

When: 12.30-2.30, Sunday 4 May

Where: Piqueos Restaurant 298 Rathdowne St North Carlton

Price: $45 (includes food, wine, a copy of Argentinian Street Food & a $5 Books for Cooks Gift voucher) via Eventbrite or below.

Argentinian Street Food is a new book from Argentinian chefs Enrique Zanoni and Gaston Stivelmaher who run three restaurants in Paris including Clasico Argentino and a food truck that cruises the streets offering Argentinian cuisine.

The authors emapanadas and helados are the benchmark in Paris. Time Out Paris

This, their first book, is an homage to the Argentinian street food traditions of Empanadas and Helados (roughly translated as pies and ice-cream!) with a great selection of recipes.

There are chapters with traditional recipes for empanadas stuffed with meat, fish, cheese, vegetables, fruits or creamy chocolate; cult Argentinian street food recipes that are easily made at home; ice creams including helado, the creamy signature Argentine ice; and some Argentine classic desserts, including the legendary dulce de leche.

Fun, easy to cook from and perfect for a picnic or slipping in a pocket to take to the football; empanadas are the essence of Argentina and as colloquial as our meat pie.

Here’s a video interview with one of the founders Enrique Zanoni talking about their Parisian success

We’re celebrating the release of this fun book with a Sunday tasting of the street food of Argentina: Empanadas, Malbec (the national grape variety of Argentina) & Helados at Piqueos Restaurant in North Carlton.

When: 12 noon, Sunday 4 May

Where: Piqueos 298 Rathdowne St North Carlton

Price: $45 (includes food, wine, a copy of Argentinian Street Food & a $5 Books for Cooks Gift voucher)
