I’m thrilled to announce that today, October 22nd, sees the nationwide Australian on-sale date of my second What Katie Ate cookbook ~ What Katie Ate at the Weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

I am really happy with the outcome of my second book. It was a mammoth under-taking for me and as a lot of authors will attest, your second book is often the hardest as due to the (wonderful) success of my first, I had a lot to live up to ~ especially as the first one, won a James Beard Award in 2013, which is still one of the highlights of my life and career as a photographer.

I started work on this book back in June 2013, just after I returned from NYC in May. I wanted to include more travel and lifestyle stories in this one, and overall it’s a lighter, brighter version of the first book. There are 5 editorials dotted throughout the book which have a lovely magazine-feel and one features 9 of the most gorgeous blog readers who all came together to have lunch with me back in October last year ~ thanks again girls, you were all fantastic!

Book 2 is all about weekend entertaining ~ or more specifically it’s jam-packed full of recipes that you can enjoy at the weekend, but you can also make with ease during the week. Lots of brunch ideas, funky salads, dinner party mains, cocktails and party food and yummo desserts. I am really happy with all the recipes and they reflect a lot of the learning over the past two years in regards to seasonal produce and growing as a recipe writer.

The book is on sale nationwide as of today in Australia, New Zealand and Germany.
Please note ~ It will go on sale in the US, UK, Ireland and Europe as of next May 2015.

On Friday this week I will be launching a new section on the blog where you can purchase a signed copy of the book and my first one, along with a selection of photographic prints ~ I’ll be adding more and more pics to the latter section as the months go on.

All sales at this stage are limited to Australia but I am looking into postage options for worldwide orders. Until then, you can buy a signed copy of the book here at The Gourmet Grocer Online or at bookstores nationwide.

To celebrate the launch of the book and in conjunction with The Gourmet Grocer Online, I am giving away a Deluxe Food Hamper to the value of AUD$250 which will include a signed copy of book 2 along with a load of gorgeous foodie items which will be hand-picked by myself at the Gourmet Grocer Online Store. This prize is limited to Australian and New Zealand readers only due to postage cost restrictions

To win, simply leave a comment below telling me your favourite thing to cook at the weekend.

I hope you enjoy What Katie Ate at the Weekend as much as I do ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just INCREDIBLE!!! I am such a huge fan of your work and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of the new book. Well done!! It is a huge task and to have created something so wonderful is just amazing. You should be very proud. xxxx

      I was lucky enough to be given two of your cookbooks for Christmas this year. Your photography and food styling is a work of art! So glad that you’ve followed your passion for this industry. Because I’ve only just received the cookbooks, I don’t have a favourite but I can’t definitely tell you that the vanilla panna cotta will be one of the first things I cook.

      Caity xx

    Red quinoa salad with chorizio, feta, roast veges, nuts and salad greens. So delicious and easy. Team that up with a cider and you have perfection!

  3. October 22, 2014 at 11:02 am

    Positively stunning, Katie!! I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy. Looks like all your hard work paid off, so congratulations!

    Summer Salads! My husband is a gun on the BBQ, so it’s always a team effort! As an avid Delicious reader, your weekend entertaining recipes have been used time and time again!

  5. October 22, 2014 at 11:12 am

    Hi Katie, My favourite thing to cook at the weekend are your raspberry and chocolate meringue kissses from your first book as they are absoluteky sensational and everybody Ive made them for loves them! Look forward to cooking a lot more of your stuff from Book 2!! Kady x

      My favourite weekend cooking adventure has to be trying out a new recipe however I always go back to your sausage rolls from book one! The grated green apple and pork mixture is superb and for all ages!

  6. October 22, 2014 at 11:30 am

    recipes and photography look fabulous…congratulations on book number 2… My favourite weekend cook is a good ole roast dinner…

  7. October 22, 2014 at 11:38 am

    On the weekends, I love nothing more than lazy day brunches with friends, movie nights, walks along the beach with my husband and pup and also a spot of pottering around the kitchen
    Congratulations on this lovely new book Katie ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. October 22, 2014 at 11:46 am

    The new book looks absolutely stunning! My fav thing to cook in the weekend is fluffy white scones with jam or a slow cooked vege & bean chilli con carne to last the coming week!

  9. October 22, 2014 at 11:59 am


  10. October 22, 2014 at 12:03 pm

    my favourite weekend food is definitely, fresh eggs from the chickens made into simple chive and cheese omelettes served with homemade ciabatta. preferably eaten sitting outside. looking forward to your new book.

  11. Karyn Smedts
    October 22, 2014 at 12:07 pm

    OMG Katie my mouth is watering just looking at the gorgeous images from your new book. I cant wait to get it!

    My favourite thing to cook on the weekend is a good old fashioned roast of some description & all that goes with it. I grew up going to my grandparents house for Sunday Roast (at lunch of course) every week. They had a huge market garden out the back, my granddad’s passion, and so there was always an abundance of fresh, seasonal vegetables.

    October 22, 2014 at 12:19 pm

    New book looks fantastic! I just jumped onto the Good Grocer to order myself a copy and ended up buying BOTH of your books instead! Can’t wait until they arrive. My favorite thing to cook on the weekend is breakfast with my family.
    Current fave is Smashed Avocado with Meredith Goat Cheese on toasted sourdough, served with perfect poached eggs! (and an espresso). x

  13. Jess
    October 22, 2014 at 12:20 pm

    A huge happy congrats Katie! Hhhmm I love a Saturday avo cook up for friends – something fab for grazing with wine, followed by some pulled pork and salads or pizzas with fresh bases. With that system in place i tend to be unable to produce dessert! Might need your book!!!

  14. Donna
    October 22, 2014 at 12:23 pm

    HI Katie, Once again your book looks just stunning! On the w/e I love nothing more than grabbing a cook book off the shelf, flicking through and giving something a go…isn’t that what they are for! I can’t wait to do this with your book….again x

  15. October 22, 2014 at 12:52 pm

    Hi Katie, congratulations on your new book! It looks amazing!

    My favourite thing to make on the weekend is your fettuccine with prawns, cream and sun-dried tomatoes from your first book. It is a firm family favourite now, and everyone gets excited when we decide to make it. The delicious smell of the vermouth cooking draws everyone out of their hiding places and into the kitchen every time it is made. We sit and enjoy the meal together, Then each of us eye off the left overs and fight over who gets to enjoy them for lunch the next day!

    Congratulations again on the book, I can’t wait to try out all the new recipes! Kath

  16. October 22, 2014 at 1:11 pm

    CONGRATS! Katie, you amaze me daily and your photography inspires me greatly. So excited for the book to hit the US!

  17. Paul
    October 22, 2014 at 1:12 pm

    My favorite thing is to make at the weekend is having a pot of soup on the stove slowly cooking for hours. Posiibly minestrone romano with spring veges and lots of herbs from the garden. May be good old fashioned chicken soup when I’m in need of comfort food.

  18. October 22, 2014 at 1:51 pm

    During winter it would have to be a slow cooked meat with a nice glass (or 3) of red wine and during summer – bbq treats, seafood, salads and lots of chilled rose to share with friends! Congrats Katie, it looks real tasty! ๐Ÿ™‚ x

  19. Amanda
    October 22, 2014 at 2:02 pm

    What I like to cook on the weekends actually involves not really cooking at all! I like to head over to the fish markets in Maroubra and get the freshest tuna and salmon and make sashimi. Pared with edamame, seasoned rice, fresh pickles and seaweed, it brings me back to the days of living and working in Japan. I never have the patience to do it on a weekday ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. October 22, 2014 at 2:04 pm

    Amazing! My favourite thing to cook at the weekend is a roast chicken dinner. Reminds me of home (England every time) Such a beautiful way to finish up a weekend x

  21. October 22, 2014 at 2:08 pm

    My favourite thing to cook on the weekend would have to be breakfast of any sort! During the week, I’m in too much of a hurry to do anything more than make a bowl of granola. On the weekend, I relish the opportunity to make something a little more interesting. This weekend I made spelt pancakes with rhubarb and coconut yoghurt. It was truly divine! Can’t wait to see the book – if it’s anything like your last I will be in foodie heaven! xx

  22. October 22, 2014 at 2:46 pm

    Congratulations, Katie! Looks absolutely jam packed with beautiful images and tasty recipes, just like your last cookbook. Looking forward to its release in the US. Please announce if you’ll be touring in the US when it’s released!!

  23. Kate Lowe
    October 22, 2014 at 2:52 pm

    Cinnamon infused French Toast topped with strawberries, greek yogurt, homemade granola and a drenching of maple syrup.

  24. Morgan
    October 22, 2014 at 3:00 pm

    Your book looks awesome! I love to bake on the weekend so i would probably make something my daughter would love like a big chocolate cake with chocolate icing.

  25. Georgia
    October 22, 2014 at 3:03 pm

    Hi Katie!!!
    I love your book. At the weekend I like cooking your slow cooked Lamb from your first book, and then make the pizzas from the left over lamb on Sunday night. BLISS! I also love making exotic breakfast, mainly but not limited to pancakes made in different ways to the usual. One of my favorites is simply a mashed banana, some ricotta and some oat bran, cooked as any pancake would be. Then on top I do a mix of ricotta, cinnamon and pear (or what ever fruit I may have). YUM!
    Cannot wait to get cooking with the new cook book!!!
    Love Georgia xx

  26. Eva
    October 22, 2014 at 3:33 pm

    Crispy oven-baked potatoes for sure!

  27. Virginia
    October 22, 2014 at 3:40 pm

    What a BEAUTIFUL book!
    Bacon & eggs with avo and toms for brekkie, and we love to entertain, often hosting 20 for a 3course meal. This would help!

  28. October 22, 2014 at 4:13 pm

    Omg!Omg!Omg!Just when I thought your photography is so damn good it can’t get any better you throw this book and my jaw is on the floor ๐Ÿ™‚ How can I get this bookearlier in the UK?Waiting till may is just impossible! ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Deborah
    October 22, 2014 at 4:33 pm

    My partner and I love your first book, and are so excited about the release of Book #2! Congratulations!
    My favourite thing to cook on weekends are meals that take me to another place; be it exotic or homely, but always new & exciting to share with my favourite people! (A bright, colourful salad and a delicious meat that has marinated for hours or cooked to the point of melt-in-your-mouth springs to mind.. )

  30. Daniel
    October 22, 2014 at 4:38 pm

    My girlfriend got me onto your book, Katie, and What Katie Ate has definitely become What I Cook in our household. A winner every time! On weekends and particularly if I’m trying to impress, it’s your eight hour lamb.. I get requests to cook this! Or the pork and red wine lasagne: sorry Mick, but it’s known as Daniel’s lasagne ’round my house! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  31. Elyse
    October 22, 2014 at 4:57 pm

    Book looks awesome!

    My favourite thing to cook on the weekend are the things that take time – layer cakes or soup! Alternatively, pancakes.. for dinner.

  32. October 22, 2014 at 5:24 pm

    I’m glad your success. I hope that also in Poland will be able to buy it. I’m waiting for it impatiently. Regards.

  33. Clare
    October 22, 2014 at 5:28 pm

    Such exciting news! Simon says, eat what Katie does, so I do.

    My favourite food to cook on a weekend is bread. I love the way the smell fills your home. My particular house has some conflicting tastes so we usually end up with loaves that are sweet, savoury, grainy, gluten free and sometimes a bit of everything!

  34. October 22, 2014 at 5:35 pm

    Can’t wait till May !!!
    I’m gonna try to get it in Germany ๐Ÿ™‚

  35. Graham Sampson
    October 22, 2014 at 5:42 pm

    My favourite thing to cook on the weekend is a baked beans of sorts. Lots of onion and garlic to get things started, slice up some chorizo and add to the mix to start browning, a couple of tins of cannalini beans and some chopped tomatoes thrown in and bring to the boil. Let the sauce thicken then serve up on some nice chunky toast with some crumbled feta or a fried egg on top.

  36. angelika
    October 22, 2014 at 6:31 pm

    at the weekend I don’t like to cook. cooking is something for evening during the week to get a distance from the stress at the office. at weekends I like to have long breakfasts or brunches with friends where everyone brings something so that no one really likes to eat in the evening. now in autumn and upcoming winter we start to have raclette evening on saturday evenings – starting in the afternoon. btw – your book looks so, so wonderful! you, the meals, the design – all together absolutely gorgeous!

  37. October 22, 2014 at 7:10 pm

    Most favorite thing to do on the weekends is head down to my local fresh food market, stock up on fresh ingredients and come home for lunch and cook up a mixed veggie salad with a lemon garlic tahini recipe with a piece of salmon cooked in parchment payment with leaks, lemon, dill and salt and pepper. Purrrrfecttt!

    Not only do I love your recipes, but your photography work. As a photographer myself I can’t stop myself swooning and drooling over your recipes. As I flip through the pages I often find myself saying ‘Yummmmm’ whilst touching the photos as if I was going to get a bite of your breakfast strawberry muffins. Can’t wait to see your next book!

  38. Anna Ritchie
    October 22, 2014 at 7:36 pm

    Hi Katie,
    The new book looks great! I am always inspired if there is something Italian included. My favourite thing at the weekend is to bake! I love baking banana or date loaf for the week ahead!

  39. Melissa
    October 22, 2014 at 8:12 pm

    Wahoo how exciting. I just adored your first book and am so excited to hear me your second one is coming out.
    I just adore cooking a good pork roast with a killer crackling and all the trimmings on the weekend. Great time to invite the family round and dig into some good food.

  40. October 22, 2014 at 8:17 pm

    The book looks amazing, well done. Perhaps it’s because I’m sitting in chilly tassie at the moment in front of he fire, but I love cooking a veggie lasagna on Sunday evenings… With fresh lemon ricotta, kale, cannelini beans and mushrooms… Yum…

  41. Wendy
    October 22, 2014 at 8:24 pm

    Congratulations on your 2nd book. My favourite thing to cook on the weekend is a fabulous sponge cake with lashings of cream and passionfruit icing. Yum.

  43. Catherine
    October 22, 2014 at 8:32 pm

    My favourite things to make on the weekend are huge batches of berry bircher muesli and maple and coconut granola. The recipes change all the time but there is always a great mix of dried fruits, nuts and cinnamon. Making a big batch means I have a healthy and delicious breakfast for the week and I always have enough to package some up for my friends too!

    Can’t wait to see the new book. Congratulations!

  44. Simone
    October 22, 2014 at 8:35 pm

    Hi Katie, congratulations on your new book!
    I’m a uni student so weekends are an ideal time for procrastibaking and I’m always on the lookout for impressive but simple/cost-effective recipes that suit my skill level (low) and wallet (also kind of low)! I really like making brownies from an old DesignTech recipe – even more so because they last the whole week ๐Ÿ™‚
    Best wishes,

  45. October 22, 2014 at 8:57 pm

    I would love to read your cookbook cover to cover and study your staging. I am still trying to improve on my food shots. I love to cook and my Honey and I on the weekends make dishes to store in the freezer. We bake bread, make meatballs, ravioli, gnocchi and soups — just to start. Then we share them with our kids and grandkids. To me cooking is therapy. I am constantly looking for new recipes, new flavors and new techniques. I am looking forward to your cookbook. Psssst!! I’d love to win it.

  46. Liga Zarina
    October 22, 2014 at 10:33 pm

    Just before I got an email about your new post I was thinking to try out your raspberry and chocolate meringue kisses. The photographs alone are enough to convince to make them, not to mention the simple instructions and beautiful writing. No doubt that your next book will be as successful as the first one.

    My favourite thing to make on weekends are light meals as pan fried snapper with salads as that is the only time of the week when me and my better half can have seafood. A good way to relax yourself and your body before a new week has started.

  47. October 22, 2014 at 10:39 pm

    I am a huge fan of your first cookbook and can’t wait to check this out!

  48. October 23, 2014 at 1:00 am

    It must be so rewarding to see the project finally completed and another book full of delicious looking recipes released to the world. Congratulations!

    I’m in the UK but determined to get a copy before May ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait to start trying some new ideas!

    Favourite thing to cook at the weekend has to be Cinnamon-Apple Cake.

  49. October 23, 2014 at 1:14 am

    I LOVED your first book! The pictures were magical and so deserving of your award – I’m sure your second book is just the same. Favorite weekend activity is running, hiking and eating ๐Ÿ™‚

    I like making brownies on the weekend, so the double chocolate brownies in your new cookbook look like exactly the thing I need to fill my weekends with for added deliciousness! ๐Ÿ™‚

    October 23, 2014 at 3:31 am

    Mt favorite thing to cook on the weekend is a BBQ, pack up some delish food and head out to the lake or adventure up a river with a group of friends and have a big shared picnic BBQ. Can’t wait for the second book, the first lives on my bench. Congrats.

  53. Sandy Butler
    October 23, 2014 at 5:07 am

    Fabulous another cookbook. Loved the first one. Very excited to get the new one. Our favorite weekend cooking is breakfast – brunch. At the moment I am loving sauteed fresh kale( from the garden) and mushrooms with a poached egg on top, drizzle some balsamic and good Extra virgin Olive oil and you have a great start to the day. This weekend I may try some on some fresh homemade spelt sourdough. Yum, cant wait.

  54. Louise
    October 23, 2014 at 7:36 am

    Weekend food has to be slow roasted pork with crispy roasted potatoes and salad. Homemade lemonade (my Son’s favourite thing in the world). Followed by ricotta cake drizzled with berry compote. Yum! Congrats on the new book – it looks awesome!

  55. October 23, 2014 at 9:17 am

    Congratulations Katie! Lovely book and amazing styling. Looking forward to trying some of the recipes!

    My favourite thing to cook on the weekend is something I haven’t tried before! I’m addicted to trying new recipes and tasting new flavours! Sometimes the flavours are so unusual or out there but it’s so much fun for me and my boyfriend to do!

    Love your cookbook Katie! I’ve just ordered your other cookbooks so I can try more new recipes! And the pictures and design is beautiful!

    Congrats on the new book Kate! Looks brill!

    My favourite thing to cook on the weekends is a good old authentic indian curry, made from scratch with homemade breads and proper rice. All washed down of course with some red wine ๐Ÿ˜‰

  62. Walter White
    October 23, 2014 at 7:31 pm

    Great book Katie. I look forward to shoplifting it in time for Christmas. My fave thing to cook on the weekend is a delicious batch of crystal methamphetamine. The aromas waft out of the lab and through the neighbourhood, whetting everyone’s appetite for a four-day meth binge. Jesse and I round out the day with a walk along the canal followed by watching Orange is the New Black curled up on the couch.

  63. Alessandra Italy
    October 23, 2014 at 11:02 pm

    Fabolous new book!
    To me saturday is the best day to cook pizza (margherita or Napoli with anchovies) and focaccia, I like to prepare some pesto (tradional one: basil, parmigiano, olive oil, garlic and pinenuts) to put on top of the focaccia. And a simple delizioso Apple tart. Weekend is never long enough!

  64. Sally
    October 24, 2014 at 7:14 am

    On weekend I like to cook anything that involves my husband and I cooking together. We are both food addicts. He specialises in savoury dishes and I love baking sweet dishes (which means it’s often a three course affair).

  65. Santwona
    October 24, 2014 at 9:50 am

    Congratulations Katie! On weekends, we like to cook up meat curries, mostly lamb or goat, that then lasts us for most of weeknight dinners too.

  66. October 24, 2014 at 10:01 am

    Congratulations on your new book.

    My favourite thing to cook on the weekend is a swiss roll, my 3 boys just love it and its so simple – the happiness all around when I cut them slices and the cake disappears in 2 seconds!

  67. Maureen McGinnity
    October 24, 2014 at 11:35 am

    Anything that is quick and easy, pasta, curry’s bbq or trying new recipes when friends come to dinner served with veggies out the garden – bliss!

    October 25, 2014 at 7:20 am

    Congratulations Katie, I can’t wait to get hold of your new cook book. On weekends I love to bake so Friands (esp the raspberry ones from your first book), muffins, cakes, cookies and breads are all on the menu in our house on weekends.

    Already loved your first book, so I am definitely looking forward to holding your 2nd one in my hands ๐Ÿ™‚ And a signed one from you – wow, that would be amazing!

    My favourite dish by far is fresh aspargus, combined with potatoes, sauce hollondaise – and to kick it off: crรชpes with ham!

    All the best from Germany

    Wake early, get coffee on stove. Cycle to Marrickville Markets. Have a lovely chat with the stall holders. Buy flowers & organic veges, maybe a succulent to grow in an old vessel. Cycle home with goodies. Fire up the oven. Spatchcock a plump chicken. Into it’s oven home it goes. Serve hot and crispy with a lovely salad of leaves, strawberries & fresh goat cheese. Some crunchy sourdough. A glass of wine. A warm evening in the garden. Husband. Bliss x

    Hey Katie,
    Congratulations on the new book. I think I know what I’ll be hinting at for Christmas. I’d have to say the my favourite thing to cook on any weekend is simple Sunday brunch. Whilst recipes may vary, my favs are usually poached eggs on sour dough with smashed chilli avocado or if I’m feeling indulgent banana and coconut pancakes with creme fraiche and caramel sauce – thinking of it now is making me hungry!

  74. Lara
    October 26, 2014 at 3:41 pm

    My favourite thing to make on the weekend is baked eggs for brunch. They’re such an easy delicious meal to share with friends on the weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

  75. October 26, 2014 at 3:50 pm

    The new lighter brighter aesthetic is absolutely stunning! I love it!

    My favourite weekend cooking is always something a little more adventurous, something I need to take a little time on & challenge myself to try something new… I’m sure there will be plenty of wonderful & beautifully captured new recipes to get me going in your new release

    Congratulations, you’ve outdone yourself x

  76. Libby Walker
    October 26, 2014 at 6:12 pm

    A very big congratulations on the 2nd book, Katie. It looks divine โ€ฆโ€ฆ.. Don’t know if your first book is available in New Zealand but hope to track down this oneโ€ฆ.. favourite for the weekend is some version of bacon & eggs.

Will look forward to getting your book and perhaps catch up again….in sydney this week for a conference. Suzanne

    Gorgeous Katie! What a serious undertaking, but it looks like a stunning result and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy to drool over and bake {read: convert} from. My hands down fave thing on the weekend to bake? Hmmm… would have to be a big loaf of gluten free banana bread… or a decadent chocolate brownie… what can I say, pregnancy hormones make it hard to pick just one!

    Well I like to go for a long walk on the weekend… I also like to take time to do some cooking or cake decorating. For some reason your blog has been hidden in my bloglovin feed, I just thought things had been quiet for a very long time. Ha ha.

    Stunning photos! My favourite thing to cook is steak with broccoli sautรฉed in olive oil, garlic and slivered almonds – simple but so tasty!

    Wow what a gorgeous book! My favourite thing to make on the weekend is some baking for the kids (and my) lunchboxes for the week ahead – maybe a macadamia brownie, banana bread, buckwheat choc chip cookies.. Love to put on some music and get mixing, sometimes with my little helpers, sometimes on my own.

    I love your first book and I can’t wait to try the recipes from your second book. We’re celebrating an early Christmas on Sunday this weekend due to some family members going overseas for two months. For this weekend and also in general I love a good BBQ with colourful, healthy salads. My favourite salad at the moment has lots of quinoa, roasted capsicum, cucumber, crunchy seeds, baby spinach, corn, cucumber, spanish onions and whatever else I can find in the fridge in it. A favourite BBQ desert is cooking honey covered bananas with almonds wrapped in foil. So delicious.

    I’m consoling myself over the wait until May (in the US) by buying a copy of your first book.

    Katie, I totally need your books! But I`m in Brazil, how can I buy it???

    I love to cook a leg of lamb with lots of fresh rosemary and garlic in the oven nice and slowly until it all falls off the bone. Throw in some crunchy roast potatoes and gravy made from the juices and I am in heaven. Oh and don’t forget friends and family to share it with! Congrats on book 2!

    I am absolutely drooling over these photos!! We are just about to settle into our first home and I cannot wait to spend summer on the alfresco! My partner and I love to BBQ and good old fashioned ribs are a favourite! I am also looking forward to long brunches with friends and family in the summer sun ๐Ÿ™‚

    At the moment because it’s Christmas I’m loving festive cook ups- this weekend will be beef Wellington with glazed carrots and garlic and chive mash and to finish it off will be homemade vanilla ice cream with white chocolate, berries and nougat.

    I just received your wonderful book as a Christmas gift. I am dying to try the recipes. What would be your suggestion to serve with the Proscuitto, Fig and Char Grilled peach salad?

    Have missed you here. Seems like once the books come out the blogs suffer. Hope that is not the case because I have enjoyed visiting.
