Maggie Beer Cooking Classics
Maggie Beer is one of the nicest women I have met in the food industry here in Oz. She’s exactly as you would think her to be in person ~ kind, gracious, super friendly and warm, just overall a really beautiful woman. I have all of her books now and she’s a great inspiration to me. This year Penguin have produced a set of some of their most prolific cookbook author’s work in a box set called ‘Lantern Cooking Classics’ and in said set you’ll find Maggie’s book
“Maggie Beer welcomes you into her kitchen with this carefully chosen collection of her absolute favourite recipes, featuring the produce of her beloved Barossa Valley. Lantern is proud to publish many of Australia’s most celebrated cooks and chefs. Lantern Cookery Classics gathers timeless recipes from these much loved authors in this new series of indispensable books for your kitchen bookshelf. Soon you’ll be whipping up your favourite dishes from Stephanie Alexander, Maggie Beer, George Calombaris, Kylie Kwong, Gary Mehigan and Matt Moran. Why not treat yourself to the complete set?”
When I was working in the Penguin design studios back in March 2012 finishing up the What Katie Ate book design, the designers there were working on this stunning set of books. Honestly I was totally taken-a-back at the simplicity of the design and beautiful illustration and individual text treatment, I can’t wait to get my paws on a full set.
