Five tempting new cookbooks in July

This month, our food and gardening columnist Chris Gordon recommends two cookbooks that celebrate the versatility of cauliflower and nachos, as well as a gorgeous new edition of a classic.


The Margaret Fulton Cookbook: 50th Anniversary Edition by Margaret Fulton

Our Margaret once said that she thought her recipes were so popular because ‘part of the thing that women liked about my recipes was that I would get them doing the maddest things’. Join me in celebrating the wonderful work of Margaret Fulton (and a rich part of our culinary history) by reading this delightful book filled with classic recipes and new favourites. There are tips and treats on every page and I promise you that by the end of this book you will have Saturday night entertaining down to a fine art.


The Book of Vermouth by Shaun Byrne & Gilles Lapalus

From the creators of the Gin Palace and the boutique Australian vermouth, Maidenii, this manual includes the very best tips for perfect cocktails, alongside a very comprehensive guide to everything you need to know about vermouth as a drink and a flavour. Perfect for all of us that favour the James Bond lifestyle, whatever our profession may be.


The Nacho Manifesto by Jack Campbell

Melbourne-based Jack Campbell provides inspiration and delight in nacho recipes for every occasion, including breakfast and dessert! And yes, all the recipes are easy to make, involve one of the greatest treats of all times (cheese and corn chips: heaven) and are suitable for all who understand the beauty of a one-dish meal.


Sweet Street by Anna Polyviou

In Sweet Street, Anna Polyviou brings her world-class training, techniques and flavours into your kitchen. Her instructions may even tempt you into making her own aptly named Anna’s Tower of Terror. This book is perfect for aspirational cooks, for dreamers of fairy floss and for all of you who enjoy spending an entire weekend baking one single creation.


Cauliflower by Oz Telem

Such is Israeli foodie Oz Telem’s obsession with food that he spent his final year of school translating Gordon Ramsay’s Healthy Appetite into Hebrew. In Cauliflower, he shares his enthusiasm for this surprisingly versatile vegetable. Cauliflowerfeatures recipes for snacks and starters, soups, salads, Middle-Eastern inspired meals, and truly comforting pastries and pies. Who knew?!
