“Peter Gilmore’s flavour profiles are exquisite – his cuisine is a brilliant representation of Australia today – global while maintaining its indigenous spirit.” Thomas Keller.
Quay, one of the top 50 restaurants in the world, is a showcase for Peter Gilmore’s culinary genius.
Peter’s nature-based philosophy and the organic presentation that is synonymous with the fine dining experience at Quay is reflected in the stunning photography and illustration of this eagerly anticipated book.
Quay’s recipes, including the irresistible eight-texture chocolate cake and signature ‘sea pearls’, will take you on an inspirational adventure, exploring flavor, texture and technique. Start with a single component, build to a show-stopping dish, or simply enjoy the visual and culinary journey.
As my cookbook collection nears triple digits it really takes something special in order to stand out from the crowd. Seated alongside books like Noma, Alinea, the Thomas Keller collection and even the vast expanse that is the Modernist Cuisine set Quay stands out as the most impressive by far! The quality of materials and printing is simply astonishing. Now if your looking for a cookbook to copy and paste recipes to impress your mother in law this isnt the book for you. Its meant for professionals and the truly hardcore home cooks, to inspire and enlighten rather than give you something to cook on Saturday night (although you could i imagine). As a professorial Chef I look to books like this for inspiration for the upcoming season and Quay is hugely influential in this respect, I may never cook a dish directly from the book but techniques and ideas are conveyed just as much as weights and measurements. I love this book, I read it cover to cover upon first receiving it. it draws you in and grabs hold of you, its all youll be talking about for days after getting it.
