Recipes For A Good Time by Elvis Abrahanowicz & Ben Milgate

The mutually inclusive part of the Venn Diagram where dude food, tapas, barbecue and rockabilly collide on a pinhead is the place where Sydneysiders Elvis Abrahanowicz and Ben Milgate have worked for the past few years with their super popular Bodega, Porteño and Gardel’s Bar eateries, ventures which brought them the acclaim of being labelled the 2013 SMH Good Food Guide hottest chefs of the year.

Cue Recipes For A Good Time, a collection of fantastic and original food dedicated to – as the title explains – having a good time with friends, and with a personal referral by Black Keys guitarist Dan Auerbach, a Ben & Elvis disciple, you know you’re on the right track.

Simple at it’s core, the heavily tattooed Abrahanowicz and Milgate’s food celebrates quality ingredients and share-ability, and the entire hard-cover and beautifully photographed by Anson Smart book is written in an easy-to-follow, non-cheffy style that should make even the trickier recipes (such as jarred octopus, pork liver pȃté, diy chorizo and sour dough loaves or milk buns) accessible for the non-professional.

There’s an abundance of good ideas herein, with even curing your own bacon, cold smoking fish or ham, and some great looking desserts (Porteño Pavlova, chocolate & smoked pecan brownie) and cocktails will have you hungry to start testing these recipes immediately – or make a booking for one of their Sydney restaurants!
