Nick Haddow at Food & Words

Milk. Made. CVR copy

Milk. Made (Hardie Grant Books), by Bruny Island Cheese Company’s Nick Haddow delivers a lot of bang for your buck. Much like his cheese, this book is truly individual. This is, after all, the guy who offers his raw milk cheese C2 for adoption.
 
With little pomp and plenty of ceremony Nick walks the reader through the world of cheese and it’s a serious, at times sentimental, and impassioned stroll. The book is not designed to be encyclopaedic; it’s there to make better cheese buyers and eaters of us all and the recipes, beautifully photographed by Alan Benson, like Nick’s carefully crafted prose, offer more than enough incentive for the reader to seek out and enjoy standout Australian-made and international cheeses.
 
Nick is on the Food & Words program along with…

In Sydney. Yep, he was.
 

We had the opportunity to speak with Magnus about his books – The Nordic Cookbook and Faviken, both published by Phaidon Press – his restaurant, approach to food, photography… in a word, life. It was a very weird Sydney day. Dry heat, dusty wind, overcast, a southerly coming in — which conspired to cast an eerie, wan yellow light in the Elston Room at Carriageworks just as we sat down (in very comfy leather butterfly chairs from funkis) to talk.
 

Thank you Luisa Brimble for this beautiful portrait and also the images from the Magnus Nilsson: Food Stores event used on the home page.
