Several years ago, we fell in love with Dee Nolan’s award-winning book, A Food Lover’s Pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela; where Dee & photographer Earl Carter took us across Spain on a heartwarming journey along The Way of Saint James (also called the camino) revealing how this famous medieval pilgrimage is drawing us back, tugging at our modern hearts and minds in a way nobody could have foretold.

Although the Camino finishes in Galicia, it starts in many places throughout Spain and France. This year Dee has returned to the Camino exploring the French pilgrimage routes through Burgundy, the Languedoc, Gascony and the Pyrenees.

Beautiful Food

Price: $10 (includes tastes, drinks)) via Eventbrite or below.

Jody Vassallo is one of the new wave of Australian cookbook authors presenting beautiful and healthy food and we’re very excited to be having an evening of conversation and tastes with Jody on Monday the 20th to celebrate the launch of her new book Beautiful Food: healthy recipes to nourish you inside & out. arte

Jody may not be an immediate household name but it’s almost a certainty that you’ve tried her food, seen it on TV or cooked from a cookbook she’s worked on!

Jody has been working on cookbooks for almost 20 years, first with Donna Hay as a recipe writer, stylist and tester, then moving to Murdoch as a Food Director and then authoring a number of Marie Claire cookbooks. Jody has also published 18 health orientated cookbooks under her own imprint Fortiori and another 15 regional cuisine books overseas.

Jody now works as a stylist, consultant cook and recipe writer for a wide range of customers including River Cottage Australia and Jamie’s Ministry of Food.

If we’ve given you the impression that it’s all about style, however, nothing could be further from the truth. True this is a beautifully photographed book but the low GI, gluten free and allergy friendly recipes deliver on flavour and interest. Jody has always developed healthy recipes and given her interest in Ayurvedic principles the more than 130 recipes in Beautiful Food are truly healthy.

We’re really looking forward to cooking from this!

Join us for an evening of lovely tastes & great conversation!

When: 7pm Monday 13 October

Price: $69.95 (includes tapas, sherry, tastes, a signed copy of Movida Solera & a books for cooks voucher)) via Eventbrite or below.

In this fourth instalment from award winning duo chef Frank Camorra and author Richard Cornish, the boys from Movida are off again this time to the South of Spain searching for the traditional recipes of Andalusia – a land of ancient cities, whitewashed villages, and plains planted with olive groves and vineyards. The largest and southernmost of Spain’s regions, this is a place where cultures and cuisines have always collided and mingled.

Along the way, Frank & Richard introduce us to the food and wine producers, farmers, fishermen, chefs and cooks who share the recipes they have cooked in their kitchens for generations. Filled with vignettes of riotous spring festivals, lively markets and peaceful sherry bodegas, Frank & Richard, reveal their favourite places to eat, drink and stay. From an olive picker’s breakfast to cuttlefish in saffron sauce and the smoky lamb skewers called pinchitos morunos, MoVida Solera is a celebration of Andalusian food and culture.

We’re celebrating the launch of the latest Movida book with an evening of raucous conversation, tapas, sherry & fun.

As sherry is a big part of life in Southern Spain, a selection of the sherries tried by Frank & Richard will be available for tasting and purchase (sponsored by Bibendum & Rathdowne Cellars)

Each ticket includes a signed copy of the book; perfect as either a book for your shelf of favourite cookbooks or as a special gift for Christmas

Join us for an evening of lovely tastes & great conversation!
