Seasonal Regional

Some books tick so many boxes that it's hard to know where to begin when writing about them.

This book is at first glance a beautifully crafted creation. The cover just makes you need to open it to discover what else may be inside. The title alone tempts you, and the size of the book - 258 pages crammed with information, photographs, recipes, and much more - hints of the generosity (and endless work) in bringing it to fruition.

Best of all, this book honours not only the food, but the people behind it. You'll meet them all: Carla and Anna-Marie at Holy Goat, a multi-award-winning fromagerie; the Petty family at their eponymous apple orchard; Eric Wright 'the happy nut grower'; Jame Crooke at Gundowring Fine Foods - and so many more.

A passionate local food advocate author, Sarah Robins, has traversed Victoria to meet the people who produce the state's finest food and explore the challenges and joys of making a living from the land.

Following hard on the heels of last year's The Sustainable Table - Winner of Best Sustainable Food Book in Australia, in the Gourmand Cookbooks Awards 2012, this book, a celebration of all things good and beautiful from the soil in Victoria, is set for more awards, more honours, and more delighted readers. Importantly, it shines a well-deserved spotlight of respect on the hardworking people behind  the produce and products we all love and use.

Seasonal Regional - people, produce, places, made in Victoria with love, by Sarah Robins, with images by Matt Burke, published by Sustainable Table 2012, hardcover, well-illustrated, rrp A$60, ISBN 978 09808 70121.
