Bruny Island is fast becoming recognised as one of Australia's most compact, diverse and interesting food destinations. At only 362 sq. kms Bruny punches well above its weight - like a mini Tasmania - a charming gourmet island off an island off an island. Since the 1920s the island has become known as a holiday location with surfing beaches, stunning scenery, National Parks and historical sites. The bountiful collection of photographs and stories and recipes squeeze the juice from the joy of living on Bruny Island. It's served with deep breaths of salty air carrying aromas of hot breads, rich cheeses, briny oysters and delicate wines.
Bruny Island- food from the edge of the world was a no.1 best seller in Tasmania. It is a hard cover coffee table book. It is the second collaboration by Richard Bennett and Jill Mure. It features the wonderful produce of Bruny Island, Tasmania, and original recipes created by Jill Mure. It includes stories about the islands way of life and images of its beautiful unspoiled beauty. Richard and his wife Sue now live on Bruny Island so this was a natural subject for them.
