BOOK REVIEW: At the heart of every one of Matt’s endeavours lies a passion for fresh, seasonal produce and simplicity in ingredients.

MATT Moran's new book is a perfect Christmas present for the food-obsessed family member or friend.

In his new book Matt presents his favourites from the coast to country of Australia.

Thirty years ago, when Matt Moran first started cooking in commercial kitchens, lettuce meant iceberg, fish was always sold frozen and there was one variety of tomato - maybe two.

Australia is now the envy of the world for its climate and range of produce, and is a food-lover's destination, spurred on by generations of keen home cooks.

The recipes in this book span the country food traditions of regional Australia to the rugged coastline, which offers amazing fresh seafood.

From the best slow-roasted lamb shoulder to an iconic passionfruit cheesecake, anyone who has spent time in Australia will find something in this collection to which they can nod their head and smile, recognising a recipe that is a favourite in their household.

At the heart of every one of Matt's endeavours lies a passion for fresh, seasonal produce and simplicity in ingredients.

He is a frequent contributor to food publications globally and he has been a presenter, judge and host on many much-loved Australian and international TV shows, most recently on the top-rating Great Australian Bake-off. This is his fifth cookbook.

"This is the Australian food I love, and I hope you find lots to love here too," Matt said.

Published by Murdoch Books, Matt Moran's Australian Food is available in bookshops now. RRP $45.00
