Reviews - What do customers think about Matt Moran?
An Aussie icon of dining Aug 18, 2008
This is a fabulous cookbook from the owner and head chef at the beautiful 'Aria' restaurant in Sydney. If you are in Sydney and enjoy fine food it is a must-visit with its fabulous location on the harbour and exquisite use of local Aussie produce.
This cookbook details Matt's belief in using excellent produce simply in order to highlight texture and taste. The book is divided into 9 chapters being 1)Canapes, 2)Soups, 3)Salads and Light Meals, 4)Pasta, Risotto & Gnocchi, 5)Seafood, 6)Poultry & Game, 7)Meat, 8)Desserts and 9)Basic Recipes. The recipes are not for beginners but having said that you do not need to be an experienced chef to cook them as they stem from what Matt cooks at home and therefore are often a simple concept just using the right ingredients. I have made the Fig, Baby Bean, Prosciutto, Blue Cheese and Rocket Salad and the Citrus-cured Salmon with Fennel and Orange Salad to much praise. Perfect fare for an Aussie (or Canadian or USA summer). Highly recommended for those that like inventive and honest food.
