Siu-Ling Hui has immersed herself in the lore of Melbourne's Queen Victoria Market, fossicked recipes from stall holders and professional chefs and learnt the stories of fish merchants, farmers and foodies. Along the way she gives guidance on how to shop in each of the food sections, how to ensure that what you're buying is the freshest and the best - and why. The combination of over 65 recipes, tips and anecdotes is testimony to meticulous research and a loving tribute to a Melbourne icon. Historical and contemporary photographs by leading Melbourne photographer Simon Griffiths ice the cake. There is no better way to discover the essence of Melbourne than to shop and mingle at the Queen Victoria Market. This book, a collection of fabulous stories, recipes and photographs, is a celebration of one of the city's greatest treasures.
