ABOUT WILD ADVENTURE COOKBOOK BY SARAH GLOVER
Chef Sarah Glover and photographer Luisa Brimble are taking what you know about cookbooks – and throwing it to the curb. Their collaborative book WILD, which straddles adventure handbook and culinary choose-your-own-adventure, awakens the pure primal joy to be found in food and eating.
Shot over 2 years in no less than 17 locations across the east coast of Australia, this book pushes boundaries in all directions. Forget about the more clichéd notions of ‘foraging’ as this book takes it to the next level. This book is about breaking rules and challenging conventions. WILD will make you think about freshness of food in a whole new way, and about becoming more instinctive about flavour, ingredients and food preparation.
A qualified chef, Glover is a self-described finder of goodness and her favourite kitchen is the landscape. Armed with her knife and a few basic tools of the trade – Sarah’s approach to food has refreshing ‘rogue’ element, as she deconstructs measurement and method to create something more authentic and uncomplicated.
Stunningly captured by WILD co-creator and lifestyle photographer Luisa Brimble, this book is photographed ‘documentary style’ – out in the wild, completely free of studio and conventional kitchen. Brimble is there every step of the way, capturing the moment: the ingredients, the processes, the locations, the people, the drama and the absolute magic that occurs when these elements all come together.
