Avid Readers have loved watching Matthew Evans in the SBS show “The Gourmet Farmer.” In "The Real Food Companion", renowned food writer Matthew Evans shows us how to ethically source, cook and eat real food.

"The Real Food Companion" taps into the current back-to-basics approach to buying and cooking food and features tried and tested recipes, including techniques for how to make things such your own ricotta and clotted cream. Matthew reminds us of the importance of returning to locally grown produce, not only to support regional agriculture and best practice farming, but to celebrate the true taste and flavour of real food – cooked from the heart and brought steaming to the table. His writing is engaging and knowledgeable, considering and answering many questions that will offer new insights for anyone with an interest in food.
