The debut book from Dan Hunter, the celebrated award-winning pioneer of modern Australian food

In the countryside outside Melbourne, Chef Dan Hunter has transformed a rustic farmhouse into the award-winning Brae, one of Australia’s most exciting dining destinations. Brae attracts diners from around the world with its fine-dining approach to hyper-local cuisine. In this, his first book, Hunter explores the theme of place and its impact on him and on his unique style of cooking. Set against the dramatic backdrop of Australia’s landscape, his story is reflected in lush colour photography of his food and the environment.

Before opening his own venture, Dan spent six years leading the kitchen of Dunkeld’s Royal Mail Hotel. There he developed his first intensive organic kitchen garden program and took the establishment to its Three-Hat status. In December 2013, Dan’s first solo venture, Brae, was opened. Dan was named Chef of the Year 2012 and 2016 in The Age Good Food Guide; Chef of the Year 2016 in Australian Gourmet Traveller Magazine; and Top Chef 2016 and 2017 in The Australian Financial Review’s Top Restaurants Awards.

MEET THE PUBLISHER

Phaidon Books

PHAIDON: HOME OF THE VISUAL ARTS
Phaidon is the premier global publisher of the creative arts. We work with the world’s most influential authors to produce innovative books on art, photography, design, architecture, fashion, food, and travel, and illustrated books for children. Phaidon has a long and distinguished history as an art-book publisher with over 1,500 titles in print.

EARLY DAYS
The company was founded in Vienna in 1923 by Dr Béla Horovitz and Ludwig Goldscheider. Horovitz named the company Phaidon (‘ai’ pronounced ‘i’ as in ‘wise’ – International Phonetic Alphabet) in reference to Phaedo, a Greek philosopher and pupil of Socrates, to acknowledge his love of classical culture. Horovitz created quality books at an affordable price while Goldscheider contributed elegant layouts and handsome production.

The classic, now familiar, archetypal Phaidon book was introduced in 1937 with large-format publications on Van Gogh, Botticelli, and the French Impressionists. Horovitz was a pioneer of the international co-edition.

MOVE TO ENGLAND
The arrival of the Nazis in Vienna forced Horovitz to move the company to England. For the next fourteen years, Phaidon books were distributed through George Allen and Unwin Ltd. Horovitz and Goldscheider expanded the large-format series to include books on Donatello, Bellini, and Michelangelo, many edited by Goldscheider himself.

After the war, the company launched an innovative programme of scholarly and popular art publishing. This included the monumental critical catalogue of drawings in The Royal Collection at Windsor Castle, begun in 1942, and an elegant ‘pocket’ series of art-history texts.

THE REVIVAL
Entrepreneur Richard Schlagman acquired Phaidon Press in 1990 with the objective of re-establishing it as the leading publisher of books on the visual arts. The company’s headquarters returned to London in May 1991, with an energetic publishing program of new books, the revitalising of older standard texts, and the establishment of a global sales and distribution operation.

The company’s fortunes were revived, in part, via a return to Phaidon’s traditional values of excellent design and affordable prices. The books became recognised worldwide as being of the highest quality in terms of content, design, and production.

A NEW ERA
In October 2012, Phaidon came under new ownership and its new senior management team began the task of growing the company for the long term as the world’s leading publisher of books in the visual arts, food, and children’s markets.

With Headquarters in London and New York, and offices in Paris and Berlin, Phaidon now operates a global sales and distribution network, selling in over 100 countries and publishing books in English, Chinese, French, Spanish, Japanese, and German, and with an increasing number of publishing partners in further languages.

Phaidon’s beautiful illustrated books are treasured worldwide for their outstanding content and award-winning production, and feature the finest creative work from leading innovators in all areas of the arts, architecture, design, photography, interior design, travel, and food.
