Taste of Summer
Summer is a special time of year, especially in a beautiful city like Sydney. I love the long days, the sultry nights and the amazing produce. Most of my favourite fruits are in season right now and I’m spoiled for choice as to what to make with them.

I’ve recently been involved in a great project – the design and photography of an e-cookbook called Taste of Summer filled with absolutely beautiful and seasonal recipes from three of Sydney’s favourite restaurants – MUMU Grill, Sydney’s only sustainable steakhouse in Crows Nest, Bel Mondo, in the heart of the historic Rocks district and Sails on Lavender Bay, at the edge of Sydney harbour.

All of the recipes are fresh and seasonal, and every one of them looks absolutely stunning. You’ll find refreshing (yet deceptively potent) drinks like the Christmas Caipirinha, classy and interesting salads such as Bel Mondo’s Alaskan Crab Salad with Marinated Feta beignet and Maple Lemon Dressing, favourites like Mumu’s BBQ Ribs and stunning desserts like the Vanilla Panna Cotta with Strawberry, Lime and Pavlova from Sails, plus lots more!

To download your FREE copy, head over here and you’ll also get to dine for free on your birthday at MUMU Grill, as well as a selection of other special offers included in the e-book.

Thanks to all three chefs, Craig, Nathan and Andy for such beautiful and inspiring food. It was a pleasure to be involved in this project and to be able to combine my love of food with my passion for design. And to finish, a teensy bit of self promotion: I’m always available for graphic design projects big or small, so please get in touch by dropping me an email – lisa @ spicyicecream . com . au
