The Melbourne Grammar cookbook is a celebration of food shared in a community. Working with Caroline Velic – food stylist extraordinaire, Mark Chew for the stunning photography and the Friends of Grammar team headed up by Caroline Robinson, we [Blueboat] produced a beautiful cookbook that has been ‘selling like hotcakes’ since the launch in late 2010. In the words of Caroline Robinson “Food is one of life’s great pleasures. By sharing food, we express our affection, gratitude and care for family, friends and the wider community.” School life is structured into four terms loosely following the seasons. Similarly, the recipes in Sharing Food are presented to reflect what we eat during each season, the availability of produce and the needs of children throughout the school calendar. The stories attached to the recipes often describe them as family favourites, memories from childhood, or summers shared and the handwritten chalk writing throughout the book subtly links the school chalkboard, to the menu boards at cafe’s and restaurants.
