With their obvious rapport on show every Sunday night – it was only a matter of time before Masterchef judges George Calombaris and Gary Mehigan teamed up on a cookbook. Your Place or Mine? (HB $49.95) is the result of their latest culinary collaboration and is full of recipes you can actually cook, even if you’ll never be a masterchef.
If the haloumi and mint ravioli with burnt butter and raisins to start or grilled quail with cannellini beans for middles don’t take your fancy, then make like sweet lover Gary and jump straight to dessert with the chocolate honeycomb or panna cotta with roasted apricots and honey.
The boys have picked 43 of their favourite ingredients, from dried beans and asparagus to honey and figs. There is a recipe for each ingredient from both Gary and George and you will want to cook and devour every single one!
