BOOKS FOR COOKS

Country Style - - FLAVOURS -

THE WILD SIDE As the buzz around us­ing indige­nous Aus­tralian food plants grows, so should our un­der­stand­ing. Aus­tralian Bush Superfoods (Hardie Grant Travel, $29.99) is a guide to 40 foods from the bush and desert. Au­thors Lily Alice and Thomas O’quinn cover where the plants grow, their tra­di­tional use and nu­tri­tional make-up. They also pro­vide a recipe for each.

BE­HIND THE SCENES If you’re in­ter­ested to see inside the mind of a chef, Aaron Turner’s speci­fif­i­cally, then Igni (Hardie Grant Books, $60) is the book for you. It’s fi­filled with the angst and drama of the open­ing of Turner’s crit­i­cally ac­claimed res­tau­rant, Igni, in Gee­long. It’s raw and real, and Ju­lian Kingma’s moody pho­to­graphs only add depth to the drama.
