Aussie cricketing icon Matthew Hayden brings us tales of his exciting travels and passion for family, friends, fishing and food. This collection of stories and recipes features stories written by Matthew about people he knows and admires, about his young family and his cricketing mates, as well as some behind the scenes tales from The Ashes series - all related with his keen eye and characteristic down-to-earth style. There are loads of photographs from his family collection, from his mates, and from professional photographers who tour with the Australian team. And then there are the recipes! Delicious, easy-to-follow mains and deserts that the whole family will enjoy. There's so much to choose from: Prawn Pita Pizza or Salmon Quiche (what was that about real men!); Veal Stew with Parsley Dumplings or Rib Eye on Spinach with Beetroot & Horseradish Puree; Lemonade Scones or Passionfruit and Coconut Cake. Each recipe is accompanied by a photograph of the finished dish, and they're all guaranteed to work, every time!
