Good Food is thrilled to announce its first ever cookbook – Good Food Favourite Recipes – a beautiful collection of more than 100 recipes created for home cooks by nine of Australia's best-loved chefs, including Neil Perry, Kylie Kwong and Adam Liaw.

To celebrate we are hosting a special lunch at the Hotel Centennial in Woollahra on Tuesday, April 16. 

The Good Food Favourite Recipes cookbook is a 224-page compilation of the chefs' favourite recipes from Good Food in The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, as well as Good Weekend and Sunday Life magazines.

Plus many more recipes from Jill Dupleix, Helen Goh, Dan Lepard, Andrew McConnell and Katrina Meynink.

Every recipe is clearly labelled for those looking for vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options and has an accompanying photograph.
