Quay’s Peter Gilmore and a bit of Foodie Inspiration

Published On January 21, 2011 | By Gypsy | Gastronomy, Reads & Resources

Inspiration is something that often comes in fleeting glimpses and yet, the right inspired thought, work or action can sustain us for a week, a day, a year, and knowing where that well of inspiration is, going back to it time after time is key to our evolution… as professionals and as people.

Among my Food Heroes is Australia’s Peter Gilmore whose book ‘Quay’ is among the most beautiful, sensual food experiences in paper form. 

His cuisine is elegance and colour, the bridge from the garden to the kitchen, with a heavy emphasis on heirloom varieties of produce, grown specifically for his Sydney restaurant ‘Quay‘.   It makes me long to touch, smell and taste what he plates.

I am particularly fond of Chef Gilmore’s use of blossoms and floral elements,  pure genius.

We all need a little inspiration in our day, this is mine on this fine Friday.  More to follow.

Have a wonderful weekend Foodie Gypsies!
