Just George takes readers through the 80 recipes that have shaped the life and career of George Calombaris, one of Australia's most celebrated chefs, from growing up in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, with his Cypriot mother and Sicilian-Greek-Egyptian father, to his decade working on MasterChef and more than two decades running successful restaurants across Australia. With the perfect edit of mid-week meals, dishes to impress, and must-know meals for every home cook, there are plenty of the delicious Greek dishes with a twist that George is know for (tarama chicken sandwich, anyone?), alongside favourites from his restaurants (including a new take on that ancient grain salad). And then there's the food he cooks at home with his family (like the osso bucco he made for Nigella) and recipes passed on from some of George's fellow foodies (Nigella included). The recipes are graded for difficulty and time, from SUPER EASY, to a little bit of EXTRA LOVE (a few more steps, ingredients or time involved, but nothing crazy), to the recipes George DARES YOU to try, which incorporate higher end restaurant techniques. Alternative instructions are provided for these, in case you don't want to go the whole way. It's about good food, yes, but more than that, Just George celebrates the unparalleled joys of being in the moment and cooking for people you love.
