Description

We all want more air in our lives. Brighter skies, slower days, more time for growing, for cooking, for family. In The Commons, a book inspired by the hit SBS television show Gourmet Farmer, Matthew Evans captures Fat Pig Farm's year of growing, cooking and feasting. It's part how-to, part evocative diary, part cookbook (with more than 100 recipes). It's the perfect inspiration for those about to embark on a simpler life, a handy reference for those who already have done just that, and a vicarious solution for those who just want to dream the dream without leaving home.

About Matthew Evans

Matthew Evans is the co-owner with his partner Sadie Chrestman of Fat Pig Farm, a 70 acre mixed holding that grows food for their on-farm restaurant in Southern Tasmania. A chef by trade, he's fronted six series of Gourmet Farmer on SBS TV, along with documentaries What's the Catch and For the Love of Meat. For the last two decades he's written for magazines, newspapers and guide books and is the author of a dozen books on food, as well as two memoirs. When he's not writing or cooking, Matthew fattens pigs, helps tend a garden, home-brews cider and milks two full cream dairy cows.
