HOMEMADE is a love letter to Melbourne food and the people we share it with, featuring 80 diverse and cook-able recipes for home - curated by Broadsheet - by the city's best food innovators. With added context about why chefs do things the way they do, it's a book that will teach people how to cook, not just follow a recipe. The featured dishes are not about taking something out of a restaurant and serving it at home, but about the perfect dish for home.
This is a celebration of the diversity, positivity and innovation that defines Melbourne food culture, and which evolved into something even more special in 2020. The past year changed dining in Melbourne and how we think about chefs, restaurants and their place in our lives. We turned to chefs and our city's food community for lessons and inspiration on how to cook simple things well. We couldn't go to restaurants, so we brought the restaurants to us.
Featuring recipes by Melbourne's restaurant royalty, pioneers, young guns, beloved home cooks and the next generation of top chefs, this is an homage to the people, creative minds and places that have made Melbourne one of the finest food cities in the world.
