How Wild Things Are
How Wild Things Are: Cooking, Fishing and Hunting at the Bottom of the World
One young chef’s ode in recipes and words to the isolated Australian island-state at the bottom of the world.
'How Wild Things Are' celebrates nature and the slow-food life on the rugged and sometimes wild island of Tasmania. When chef Analiese Gregory relocated after years of cooking in some of the world’s best restaurants, she found a new rhythm to the days she spent cooking, fishing, foraging, hunting and discovering – a girl’s own adventure at the bottom of the world.
With more than 40 recipes, including ferments, interwoven with Analiese’s compelling story, and accompanied by stunning photography, How Wild Things Are is also a window into the joys of travel, freedom, vulnerability and the perennial search for meaning in what we do. This is a blueprint for how to live, as much as how to cook.
"This girl is a force to be reckoned with." - Gordon Ramsay
About the Author:
Analiese Gregory is one of the most talked about young chefs in Australia today, with a string of enviable kitchen credits to her name, including The Ledbury, Michel Bras, Mugaritz and Sydney's Quay. Having flirted with returning to France, she instead packed her bags on a whim in 2017 and moved to Tasmania. When Analiese is not busy with one of her many projects, she is renovating her 110-year-old farmhouse in the Huon Valley, where she lives with a cornucopia of farm friends and a wardrobe filled with charcuterie (a new hobby; she insists it was the best place for it!). Tasmania has given her a semblance of meaning and the life she craved, and she cherishes her time in nature foraging, diving, hunting, cooking on beaches, and connecting with the people whose life work it is to grow our food.
