Book Description

1 Nov 2010
Highly talented and creative young chef Brent Savage and über sommelier Nick Hildebrandt are the dynamic duo behind one of Sydney's hottest restaurants - Bentley Restaurant & Bar in Surry Hills. Brent's globally influenced, cutting-edge food can only be described as 'art on a plate'. He is regarded by food media, chefs and their many loyal customers as a technical master producing awe-inspiring food. This book unveils the secrets behind his creations in an accessible, engaging manner for the aspirational home cook, apprentice chef and seasoned professional alike. With step-by-step photography and instructions on modern cooking techniques, such as sous vide (cooking in the bag), cocktails to wow, plus food and wine flavour pairings, the home cook will be turning out stunning plates with professional flare guaranteed to stun dinner guests. Recipes include tapas through to entrées, mains and desserts. Key points: one of the few English cookbooks covering modern cooking techniques, including step-by-step photography of how to sous vide, smoke and dehydrate; written for the home cook so techniques and restaurant recipes can be replicated in a domestic kitchen; more than 80 recipes, each one accompanied with up close photography.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good take on Modern Australian cooking 12 Dec 2011
The book is based around Sydney's Bentley Bar and Restaurant(renowned for its unique contemporary cuisine.) By using molecular cooking techniques such as "sous vide" and "dehydration" to create dishes that are pleasurable and unique but not so over the top that they takeover the occasion (like many chefs these days who seem to lose focus on what is important THE FLAVOUR!!!).

Dishes in this book are achievable by the talented home cook with a little effort.The recipes are written with the home cooks in a domestic kitchen in mind. The masterclass in the beginning of this cookbook explains the techniques used at The Bentley and how to modify these using domestic kitchen equipment. However alongside many complicated recipes are many basic ones, with plenty of scrumptious ideas. If like most of us you don't wish to spend all day in the kitchen preparing one dish it is also possible to take simply part of the dish and concept to create amazing food.

Basic dishes include: "Crisp Spiced Chicken with Aioli", "Prawn on a Stick with Black and White Sesame", "Bass Groper with Sour Orange, Mussels, Clams and Mustard Puree". For those more challenging dishes using scary techniques try: "Venison Tartare with Sweet Liquid Wasabi", "Kingfish Marinated in Squid Ink with Perfumed Fruit and Coconut", "Toast Custard with Chocolate Parfait and Lychee Puree". This is a very handsome book with plenty of enticing dishes to salivate over.
