What happens when an acclaimed Australian chef is asked to ditch most of his favourite fat-laden ingredients, forgo the Italian dishes he has spent twenty years perfecting, and remove gluten from his daily diet?

With Tobie's trademark simplicity, respect for fresh produce and fuss-free cooking techniques, these are recipes you will cook time and again; to impress, to feel healthy and to nurture the ones you love.
