Surfing the Menu is based on the exciting eight-part cookery series of the same name, in which two talented chefs, Curtis Stone and Ben O'Donoghue, travel the rugged land and scenic coastline of Australia, sourcing local produce and cooking up a storm. Each chapter is drawn from one programme of the series, incorporating the recipes used, the places visited, and the people met along the way. With Australia now considered the hot spot for innovative cooking and with stunning location shots, this book is a must-have for those in love with food and this beautiful continent. The skills of the two chefs are evident throughout - Curtis is currently heading an exciting new restaurant concept with The Conran Group and was previously head chef at Marco Pierre White's Quo Vadis, and Ben is head chef at The Atlantic Bar & Grill. Surfing the Menu has been broadcast regularly on UK Food TV since September 2003. UK Food TV will request trails for the book and help market it.
