Hudson & Halls is a tale of two television chefs who helped change the bedrock bad attitudes of a nation in the 1970s and 80s to that unspoken thing – homosexuality. Peter Hudson and David Halls became reluctant role models for a ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ generation of gay men and women who lived by omission. They were also captains of a culinary revolution that saw the overthrow of Betty Crocker and the beginnings of Pacific-rich, Asian-styled international cuisine. Their drinking, bitching, and bickering on screen, their spontaneous unchoreographed movements across the stage that left cameras and startled production staff exposed, broke taboos and melted formalities. Hudson and Halls were pioneers of celebrity television as we know it today. This riveting, fast-paced, and meticulously researched book celebrates the legacy of the unforgettable Hudson and Halls.
