The Gourmet Opener



For all those who loved the Salt-Crusted Red Emperor and the Calypso Crayfish recipes from Matt Hayden's first cook-book, the Prawn Pita Pizza, the Salmon Quiche, the Veal Stew with Parsley Dumplings and the Rib Eye on Spinach with Beetroot and Horseradish Puree recipes from his second book should look really yummy. Hayden (was bitten by a dog recently) would be looking to serve more than just good food in the upcoming Ashes series.

Anything to make a buck these days. I don't blame him, though.

Point is, why would you buy Hayden's book over a well renowned chef??

I am sure the pom's would buy a copy of the cook book! for "starters" they'd like to know whats "cooking" in australia...

I am an aussie cricket tragic and have both of Hayden's cook books. I don't agree that there's no reason to buy them over a reknowned chef's book. I love cooking and have realised that a reknowned chef as author never guarantees a good cookbook. I have cookbooks from some chefs that are wonderful, but I also have wonderful cookbooks by people who are not professional chefs. I was surprised to hear about Hayden's cookbooks before they were published but there is no reason a cricketer could not also be good at cooking. Not only is the food lovely, but the books also give you some insight into "pigeon".

Agree with Lily.. There is no reason why Haydos can't dish out a better cook-book than say a book by someone like Emeril Lagassi.. He does seem very passionate about his cooking..

Lily.. don't understand the "pigeon" part - Isn't that Glenn McGrath's nick-name?

Pai.. yeah before they start looking for starters, they might get served..
