Depot - Al Brown

Hardback.   Near new condition.   2014

Depot has been one of Auckland's favourite restaurants since the day it opened, and now here is its stunning cookbook.  Depot is not overly precious or pretentious - it reflects perfectly Al Brown's attitude towards food: in season, beautifully cooked, to be enjoyed with friends.  This book is subtitled 'The biography of a restaurant', and in it Al Brown writes extensively about the philosophy of Depot, explaining why Depot has achieved iconic status among New Zealanders.

But never forget that Al is a highly trained chef.  So while the food looks simple, everything is top quality and the flavours are out of this world.  His dishes favour the unusual - using cheap cuts of meat and fish but cooking them with skill and talent.

In this book Al offers all the recipes that have been cooked at 
Depot so that you can make them at home.  Once again, Al has created a cutting-edge book - it's handsome with a stunning design.  It also contains coasters that you can pull out and use at home - a special gift for the buyer.  This isn't a book - it's an institution, and everyone will want to be a part of it.
