As an Australian living in the US it's great to have a Melbourne boy make the this site book lists - lovely recipes and commentary.
A Refreshing New Look at Italian May 18, 2006
The nice thing about looking over a new cookbook is the new ideas you get.
Today it is quite hot here. I'm looking at sandwiches made of soft boiled eggs, asparagus, mayonaise, lemon, chives and a few more good sounding ingredients. A cold sandwich and some iced tea sound wonderful.
Perhaps for dinner some thin escalope of veal grilled with basil.
And tomorrow morning there's a splendid picture of some barbecued pork sausage served with toast made with the butter put on before tosting.
These recipies come from the author's series of award winning and very popular restaurants in Melbourne, Australia. While Italian in concept, it seems to me that many of these dishes have been modified to suit Australian, and my own American tastes. Then again, there are several traditional classic Italian recipies such as Tiramisu. Many of these dishes are designed to be quick to fix, as you need in a restaurant. The very thought of main dishes that take only 5-6 minutes to cook has a great deal of appeal on these hot days.
Finally, don't overlook the polenta dishes. For those of you that are also southerners, polenta = grits. But here are grits to serve as a snack with a glass of wine and a desert recipie.
