Peter Gilmore’s third book From the Earth celebrates the diversity of heirloom vegetables, taking readers on a culinary and historical journey into the world of those most unique and almost forgotten.
With hundreds of varieties to choose from Peter has selected the vegetables that have excited him over the years for their culinary potential. Each vegetable features at the heart of a recipe, and is further explored through a detailed profile and stunning photographs by Brett Stevens.
The book looks at Peter’s decade-long passion for growing vegetables, and how it has informed and inspired his work as a chef.
From the Earth is an embodiment of this passion, illuminating the amazing world of vegetables from seed to plate.

“Through my cuisine I search for the idea of organum; for a sense of purity, which is the essence of something that is complete, where all the elements work together to create something new.”
