What is it? Words from our editor Lisa Chant
Award-winning Stradbroke Island photographers Angie Simms and Stuart Quinn have roamed the world with their cameras in hand.
Between them, they’ve tried Sunmudo martial arts while staying at a temple in Korea, tiptoed across the ice on Lake Baikal in Siberia, stayed under the stars in America’s Death Valley and hiked the Meteora Monastries in Greece.
But for their latest passion project they cast their eye much closer to home, venturing out from behind the lens to do so.
The end result is a full-colour cookbook named Eat, Drink and Be Straddie: Tales and Tastes from an Island in the Sun.
The 200-page tome, contains 100 beautifully photographed recipes, all of which feature ingredients sourced on the island, from seafood and bush tucker to organic local honey.
These are accompanied by feature stories on the island’s producers, a timeline of key historical events, a forward by Australian sporting icon Matthew Hayden and a welcome by Quandamooka elder Dr Aunty Joan Hendriks.
The outcome is an adventure and a recipe book all rolled into one.
Filled with Straddie 'scapes
