Sunday Reed was a passionate cook and gardener, who believed in home-grown produce, seasonal cooking and a communal table. Sunday's Kitchen tells the story of food and living at the home of John and Sunday Reed, two of Australia's most significant art benefactors. Settling on the fifteen-acre property in 1935, the Reeds transformed it from a run-down dairy farm into a fertile creative space for artists such as Sidney Nolan, Albert Tucker, Joy Hester and Charles Blackman. Richly illustrated with art, photographs-many previously unpublished-and recipes from Sunday's personal collection, Sunday's Kitchen recreates Heide's compelling and complex story.
