Matthew Evens - The Dirty Chef

  • Matthew Evens is one of my favourite self-sufficiency writers and presenters. His latest book The Dirty Chef tells the story about his journey from being a feared food critic in the Sydney restaurant scene to becoming a small holdings specialist farmer in Tasmania.

    I like Matthew's down to earth presentation style and his willingness to bring the audience along with him through "ups and downs" as he learns about self-sufficiency. He's probably best known for his TV series Gourmet Farmer (which in a way the book is also about) as he video documents the move from city life to the country.

    The Dirty Chef is also available in e-book for all those tech-savvy book worms out there who like to keep their books electronically now days. Also, find it on eBay here.
