Coming Soon ….The Tea & Honey Cookbook

Coming Soon ….The Tea & Honey Cookbook

Myself & are proud to have now got to the stage were our very first cookbook is set to be self-published. The Tea & Honey Cookbook project has been in the pipeline for some time and a recent work injury and consequent surgeries have put me out of restaurant kitchens for the moment. This has allowed me to dedicate a vital portion of time to drive this project along with good friend and photographer Benjamin Townsend to the crowdfunding stage which will commence shortly. The amount we need to raise is for the large cost of printing, and both myself and Ben have put considerable time, effort and funds just to get where we are. We will be pre-selling the beautiful cookbook along with a fantastic selection of pledge rewards to help us get across the line, and hopefully get the book printed for the new year.

A little more about the project….

Tea & Honey – a Cookbook Project  

With our cookbook we wanted to explore the range of flavours and combinations that could be created with these two ingredients. We have attempted to push the boundaries of what is considered the common uses of tea and honey, and create a selection of delicious and one-of-a-kind recipes. Coming from Australia and its culturally diverse society, the recipe concepts originate from a broad cross-section of regional influences.

Additionally, we wanted the book to be as visually stunning as the recipes are delicious, with beautiful photography and design. We want the book to be prominently displayed (hopefully on your kitchen bench) as you experience creating the flavours incorporated within.

Its intention is to promote the return of eating for taste and flavour, and highlight the use of quality and locally sustainable produce to create delicious food.
