Produce to Platter: the Food and Wine Lovers Guide to the Mornington Peninsula

Author(s): Jonette George


Enter the secret world of the micro Australian region, the Mornington Peninsula, with this refreshing take on regional Australia. Mother and daughter team, Jonette George and Daniele Wilton, have put heart and soul into writing this book about one of Australia's most resourceful food and wine regions. Produce to Platter, Mornington Peninsula, allows you to experience the best of this region through the eyes of its locals. Vineyards, restaurants, producers and provedores open their doors to give you a peek behind the scenes. Get a glimpse of their individual lifestyles, their passion for food and wine and their reasons d'etre. The book is all about bringing local produce to your platter, for you to enjoy Australian regional food through recipes and wine tasting notes. Produce to Platter, Mornington Peninsula is the second book for Jonette and Daniele, and has been so popular that after only two months on the street, it will have to be reprinted before Christmas. Their first book, Greater Noosa Produce to Platter was also a sell-out, with plan to rewrite next year. The girls are currently writing a book on Geelong and Surrounding regions which will be a similar style and format. Chefs from throughout the Mornington Peninsula region present their signature recipes and we are treated to the "secrets" of restaurants such as Ten Minutes By Tractor's Rolled Rabbit Loin, La Petanque's Blood Orange and Almond Pudding, and The Tasting Station's Prawn and Pear Tortellini. There are 42 recipes in all from the best restaurants and provedores in the region. Beautiful photography by local, Charlie Brown, fills the book with a pictorial display of the Mornington Peninsula today. Full pages are given over to delightful photos throughout the region, from top to bottom. The book begins with a philosophical piece written by Jonette about the circle of life. She says, "I wonder about today's generation and I wish everyone could be more connected with the earth by getting hands dirty, and creating tasty wonders that sprout from the soul...This connection is important to understand the true circle of life".
