    Description"'Tony Bilson's memoir is a looking-glass into a time of unparalleled development in food in Australia and his part in it.' - Neil Perry/br/br 'Perfection is an intimidating and inspiring experience ...A craft doesn't progress to art in short order; it develops, it evolves, it absorbs subconscious delicacies and represents them as new insights, and finally it becomes art.' /br/br Tony Bilson has been one of Australia's leading chefs for over forty years, and his restaurants represent milestones in Australian gastronomy. From a childhood in country Victoria, Tony quickly established himself as a true bon vivant, and he recounts wild nights and wild appetites with an extraordinary cast of artists, painters, writers and politicians. A Who's Who of Australian cultural life from the late 1960s to the present-day, Insatiable is also a testament to one man's capacity for reinvention and his pursuit of dining perfection."
