WHAT A PLEASURE IT IS TO SHARE A TABLE.
Shared Table is a cookbook created to celebrate this simple act. It’s filled to the brim with beautiful meals that are perfect for sharing. Whether it be a picnic with friends, housemate dinner, or a family birthday, sharing food is an act that can enrich our lives and strengthen our communities.
This book was conceived and created in share houses; the place where many of us truly learn to find enjoyment in cooking, and preparing food for others.
The eight chapters were shot in different locations throughout the inner suburbs of Brisbane, mostly in different friends’ share houses. Shared Table endeavours to capture the warmth, love, and unique connection of a loving house, as well as the role that shared meals have in creating and nurturing this. By shooting and writing recipes with these people in mind, this book also becomes a celebration of my home city, Brisbane (Meanjin). It captures some of the most beautiful parts of this city; its slow pace, incredible weather and strong sense of community.
