Matt Preston's World of Flavour: Our Exclusive Interview

In Matt Preston’s World of Flavour, beloved Australian food journalist, radio presenter and international TV personality Matt Preston gives us a surprising history lesson on Australia’s most-searched-for dishes, busting the myths in their origin stories to set the culinary record straight. If you think spaghetti bolognese comes from Italy, pavlova was dreamt up in New Zealand or that tuna mornay travelled from the United States. . . you’d be wrong. All three popped up in Australia first. We were privileged to receive a copy of Matt Preston's latest book, and we're highly impressed with the fascinating stories and myth-busting around famous foods, the quality and approachability of the recipes, the overall depth and detail of the book, and the sheer entertainment and playfulness factor that makes this book an ideal gift as we approach Christmas. Not to mention the great value of World of Flavour. This isn't one of those cookbooks you might "shelve away for show", but World of Flavour is a book you are likely to dip into for the family-friendly recipes (generally serve 4) and fascinating read. It's a point of difference in a sea of cookbooks.
