Eat at the Bar : Recipes inspired by travels in Spain, Portugal and beyond

Jo Gamvros, Matt McConnell

Like the stalwart bar of the same name, Eat at the Bar makes readers feel at once at home and familiar – even if they have not ever ventured to Bar Lourinha, beloved for its food, booze, collectors' feel and old-fashioned hospitality. It is first a cookbook, sharing 55 recipes inspired by local farmers, providores, fishmongers and suppliers, and underpinned by the flavours author Matt McConnell continues to cook with today: garlic, pimento, salt and the best olive oil. The line-up is a best of the best from more than 10 years of Matt's respected repertoire of tapas and raciones.

The book is also more than recipes: it is part travelogue too, sharing anecdotes, narrative and stunning photography from the authors' adventures in Spain, Portugal and Europe over many years – experiences that inspired the idea and philosophy of the now decade-old space they have created in their hometown of Melbourne.
