Ian Parmenter's love of food is infectious. In All-Consuming Passions he gathers together his favourite recipes, collected from around the world, from watching the great chefs and from cooking for the people he loves. Bon vivant and ABC TV personality, the gregarious Ian Parmenter takes a delight in good food and wine - in cooking the former and making the latter, as well as in eating and drinking both - so it's no wonder his long-running television series was titled Consuming Passions. In this new cookbook, Parmenter brings together 235 of his favourite recipes, including entrees, mains and desserts, which rely on his trademarks of simplicity and fresh ingredients. He shares his kitchen tips, dispenses sensible advice on food preparation and storage, and of course he provides some of his 'most requested' - like his recipe for Ego Noodles, a favourite dish of his friend and colleague, Poh Ling Yeow.
