Product Description


In 1963, 12 up-and-coming artist - including Frank Hodgkinson, Colin Lanceley, John Olsen, John Coburn, and Robert Hughes - posed on the lacework balcony of The Hungry Horse for what has become one of the defining photographs of Australian art history. Since its days in the 1960s as The Hungry Horse (bistro and gallery), the building on the corner of Windsor and Elizabeth streets in Paddington has been associated with two of the finer things in life - food and art. The pages of this cookbook, like the restaurant that hail, are filled with recipes, artworks and recollections from old friends - including John Coburn, Colin Lanceley, Frank Hodgkinson, Fred Cress, John Beard and William Wright. For this book, Lucio Galletto and chef Timothy Fisher have selected 149 recipes that most reflect the restaurant's style and philosophy towards food and presentation. The recipes can be created easily with everyday kitchen utensils an are written in an accessible style for all who love good food but are not professional chefs.

A terrific collection of recipes and beautiful artworks to introduce each chapter. A great insight into Lucio's Italian Restaurant in Paddington, Sydney Australia which is still going strong after more than 30 years.
