AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Mungo MacCallum started eating at an early age and just got back from lunch. In the meantime he has become one of Australia′s wittiest and most incisive political journalists, written for everyone from the Australian Financial Review and SBS Television to 2JJJ (now TRIPLE J) and Penthouse. In this, his eighth book, he muses on epicurean pleasures past and savoured -- from doing pre-dinner drinks and drugs with Leonard Cohen in the Greek isles to lunching with lobbyists in the fleshpots of Canberra, before escaping to reside, cook, and write some more, on the NSW north coast.

'This unlikely memoir of food and friends (and the occasional rant about tofu), is a call to arms for a no-nonsense approach to shopping, fast food, herbs, restaurants, camping and cooking real food. Enjoy this generous helping of Mungo′s favourite recipes and anecdotes containing (be warned) offal, fat, sugar, cream and other delicious ingredients. This is Mungo as you′ve never read or dined with before. Bon appétit.' (From the publisher's website.)

Notes

  • Epigraph:
    I was once an over-achiever
    A true journalistic believer
    But now I relax
    With a phone and a fax
    And a large curly-coated retriever.

    (Actually the retriever has passed on,
    but there are other dogs.)
