Cooked: Food for Friends is the first of a series of Cooked badged books that share the wealth of food content on Hardie Grant's food website. This one is all about sharing: 100 dishes, all delicious, and many of which you can whip up fast.
Across eight chapters, the book presents ideas for: backyard grill, impromptu dinners, brunch, picnics, drinks parties, high tea, and the ultimate Sunday roast spread.
These are not just any recipes, they've been selected from books by 47 star chefs and authors in the Hardie Grant stable.
For example, you might set your sights on Alain Ducasse's roast chicken, Luke Nguyen's crisp silken tofu in lemongrass, Mark Best's stunning orange and polenta cake, or Margaret Fulton's canape saviours, piroshki.
Chefs and cooks featured include: Greg and Lucy Malouf, Luke Nguyen, Skye Gyngell, Antonio Carluccio, Paul Wilson, Mark Best, Matt Wilkinson and Jane Kennedy.
