From Matthew Kenney, long considered a pioneer in raw and vegan cuisine, comes the first definitive vegan cookbook for serious foodies and chefs. Kenneyês life work has been his commitment to plant-based innovation as well as culinary nutrition, and in PLANTLAB he employs inventive techniques and creative thinking in dishes that are visual masterpieces as well as delectable meals. Inspired by his experimental kitchen and laboratory located in Belfast, Maine, PLANTLAB will help redefine plant-based cuisine for home cooks and amp up their skills to create beautifully prepared, delicious vegan foods in their own kitchens. From root purees and soups to kale polenta and pizza, the 100+ recipes employ a modern, creative approach that builds on skills as you progress through the book. As the recipes get more advanced, so to do the techniques, and by the end, you will be fermenting and using a smoke gun like a pro.
Throughout, Kenney explores elements of the lifestyle that go along with plant-based wellness, expanding on the science behind foods and explaining cutting-edge food technology and innovative techniques, such as using and making nut-based cheeses and artisanal chocolate.
Elegantly designed and gorgeously photographed, PLANTLAB celebrates innovative vegan cuisine at the highest level. It is a feast for the senses.
Recipes from Plantlab can be sampled at Mathew Kenneyês first Australian, plant based restaurant, Alibi, at Ovolo Woolloomooloo.

HAECKEL / BIEDERSTADT
The book 'Art Forms in Nature' is a collection of prints, made by the scientist Ernst Haeckel, of an enormous variety of flora and fauna from the sea including microscopic Radiolaria, starfish, and jelly fish. Since Prestel published it in 1998, the book has been a favourite with artists, designers, illustrators, and anyone who enjoys the wondrous forms of the natural world. Now paper engineer Maike Biederstaedt has transformed Haeckel's transcendent work into a three-dimensional book that allows readers to appreciate Haeckel's vivid colours, exceptional precision, and fascination with patterns and geometry. This stunning book features seven pop-ups that allow readers to see nature's brilliance the way that Haeckel did as marvellous, mathematically based creations that support his theory of the unity of all living things. Certain to appeal to his huge variety of fans, this pop-up version of a timeless classic will be treasured for years to come.
A life spent toiling in professional kitchens equals a head full of great recipes, kitchen hacks and shortcuts and invaluable cooking tips. Not to mention the entertaining yet sometimes sordid stories of life as a cooking addict.
This book is a collection of those years of learnings and stories collected, from breakfast beans through to rooftop sangrias.
