In this enticing collection of recipes, photographs and travelogue, Bécasse chef Justin North visits a blood orange orchard in the Riverina, a squab pigeon farm in Victoria, a fishing village on the east coast of Tasmania and many places in between.

He introduces you to truffles, ocean trout, goat’s cheese and wagyu beef, meeting Australia’s great producers – the people and landscapes behind his favourite ingredients. Then chapter by chapter, Justin creates mouth-watering recipes around each theme.

His approach to food is classically European: elegant and exquisite. Try the Confit of Smoked Ocean-Trout Belly with Cauliflower, Horseradish and Parsley Beignets, Pot au Feu of Squab with Foie Gras and Thyme Dumplings, or Terrine and Sorbet of Blood Orange. These dishes are a labour of love, never compromising on quality or flavour. They are Slow Food in essence and refreshingly modern in presentation.

Every step of the way, Justin's passion for the best produce and flavours shines through. Illustrated with beautiful photography of food, people and places, Bécasse is set to change your approach to fine food.
