Author(s): Matthew Evans; Alex Herbert (Editor)
Matthew Evans has been a food writer for more than two decades. He also presents an SBS television show called Gourmet Farmer. In 2014 he presented a documentary called What's The Catch, and in October and November 2016, he will be the face of For The Love of Meat, a three-part documentary upon which this book is based, and which will also screen on SBS. Matthew lives in rural Tasmania, where he moved from inner-city Sydney in 2008. His property, Fat Pig Farm, has been the location for much of the Gourmet Farmer series. He is in the process of establishing a restaurant on the farm - which he expects to have opened this year. Editor Alex Herbert is a long-time Sydney chef with an interest in sustainability and food writing. She has worked with big names including Gay Bilson, Maggie Beer, David Thompson, Christine Manfield and Martin Boetz. She opened the acclaimed Bird Cow Fish in Sydney in 1996, and subsequently developed a formidable following at Sydney's Eveleigh markets - where she called time on a seven and half year residency in May this year.
