‘In At Home with Ben, I decided to focus on the recipes that represent the

concept of shared experience. Dishes that have brought me pleasure and

whose memory I treasure. The dishes that have been cooked for me by friends,

my favourites from the many I have cooked in restaurants I have worked in, the

ones I have eaten at other restaurants, and also the dishes I cook in my

restaurant, the South Bank Surf Club. I hope these recipes bring you pleasure

when cooking, eating and sharing food!’ Ben O’Donoghue


Chef, restaurateur and television personality Ben O’Donoghue loves nothing more

than cooking fresh, simple food for his family and friends. In At Home with Ben, the

follow up to his hugely successful cookbook Outdoor, Ben shares his favourite

recipes from twenty-three years of cooking at home and in restaurants in Australia

and the UK.


With a focus on shared food, seasonal ingredients and clean, vibrant flavours, these

dishes are for everyone and every occasion. Dishes such as Caramelised Miso Beef

and Slow-Roasted Duck with Sage and Ginger feed the family with a twist, while Crab

and Rocket Linguini and Chilli Mussels can be rustled up in a flash. If you want to

impress without the fuss, try some of the dishes in the Dinner Party Show Stoppers

chapter; Vanilla and Vodka Cured Trout to start perhaps, followed by a Roasted Rack

of Veal and if your guests have any room left, how about the Classic Chocolate

Fondant?

Crepes.
