Chef Josh Niland Wins Coveted James Beard Foundation Book of the Year Award

Chef Josh Niland’s first book, The Whole Fish Cook Book by Hardie Grant Books Australia, won two James Beard Awards last night in the USA; best in category Restaurant and Professional and the ultimate accolade Book of the Year. This is a significant achievement of note! We have visited Saint Peter in Paddington for rave reviews but yet to visit Fish Butchery. 

The James Beard Awards are held each year and are arguably the most prestigious culinary book awards in the USA, if not the world. The awards are given in many categories recognising chefs, restaurateurs, authors, journalists and broadcast media.

Josh Niland is the only Australian to have won a James Beard Book of the Year Award. Josh Niland is widely recognised for his transformative work with fish. Josh and wife Julie Niland opened their award-winning restaurant Saint Peter in Sydney in 2016. It has been celebrated by the Australian culinary community since opening. Niland has also attracted global attention from some of the world’s greatest chefs for his respectful, groundbreaking and unique approach to working with fish.

Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Delivery with Early 'N' Fresh

Recently we were sent a box of goodies from small boutique fruit & vegetables business Early 'N' Fresh, recently mentioned by Epicure at The Age. This company were supplying cafes and restaurants in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne and they got hit really hard with the closure of non essential services.  In an effort to save their business and their employees who depend on them, they are now offering home deliveries of fresh fruit & vegetables to homes in Melbourne. Big point of difference - they deliver produce to order at reasonable prices not pre-made packages! For a next day delivery your order will need to be received by 10pm (that's generous!). They require a min $50 spend on a delivery which is fair enough. And amazingly there is NO charge for delivery! Ordering is easy on the website. I reckon it's a game changer.
