Lulu Le Baby Chef is a heart-warming tale of Lulu's adventures traversing the globe for the elusive perfect ingredient. It engages the current zeitgeist for all things culinary as Lulu eventually discovers often the best food is made at home with the people she loves the most.
One flight up, in a narrow, bustling bistro overlooking the chaos of one of New York’s busiest downtown streets, Ignacio Mattos serves some of the best food on the planet to throngs of loyals and locals, visiting celebrities (including presidents), out-of-town pilgrims, and everyone else curious for a taste of Estela. And what exactly are they tasting? Nothing too fancy, nothing molecular or precious or hyperseasonal, but food that hits you right there. Food that is bold, bright, layered, playful, and surprising. Food that bursts to life in your mouth.
And thanks to Estela, it’s food that you can easily make at home. Estela teaches us how to think like Ignacio Mattos – how to look at something as ordinary as a button mushroom and make it extraordinary (shaved thin over dumplings) or as familiar as burrata and transform it (with a pool of juiced herby greens and charred bread). Revealed here are the sources of so many of Estela’s surprising pops of flavour – the vinegars, citruses, and pickling broths. The aesthetic and practical reasons for presenting foods in neat circles. And the two Fs that are pillars of Ignacio’s approach to conceiving dishes: “Focus,” meaning only one or two main ingredients and a small supporting cast, and “F**kup Proof,” his technique of composing a dish so that every bite is a piece of the whole, carrying its electric marriage of flavours and textures.
Estelapresents the complete roster of the restaurant’s great dishes and a new relaxed, creative approach to cooking.

Hill of Grace is the story of a family who escaped the tyranny of their homeland in 1841 and journeyed to the bottom of the world. Resilience and courage drove the Henschkes as they travelled deep into the Barossa ranges to carve out new lives in the strange territory of the Australian bush. From the very beginnings of settlement in South Australia, many vineyards were planted, with the wine industry seen as a golden opportunity. Many of these colonial vineyards were lost in time. Few attained the international success of Henschke Hill of Grace. This story goes back in time to when the Hill of Grace was planted, following six generations of the family who each contributed to the legend. In 2018 the family celebrate 150 years of winemaking. Current custodians Stephen and Prue, work hand in hand with their progeny, Johann, Justine and Andreas, holding traditions dear, while leading the way to nurture their land with organic and biodynamic practices. As Henschke generations come and go the gnarled Hill of Grace vines have stood constant, magnificent sentinels guarding the past and future.
