Rockpool is part culinary journey, part reflection and a celebration of the possibilities of cooking. - Neil Perry
Since its beginning, Neil Perry's award-winning restaurant Rockpool has redefined Australian cuisine. It is a meeting of Western tradition and Eastern technique, and the masterpieces Perry creates are a harmony and celebration of the two.
Rockpool prides itself on using the freshest Australian and world's best produce, an unwavering philosophy that has driven Rockpool for more than 20 years.
In Rockpool, Neil shares his recipe for more than 100 dishes - everything from cocktail party canapes to desserts. Included are Rockpool's signature dishes, classics such as king prawn and goat's cheese tortellini, tea-smoked ocean trout with spring onion cake and frozen espresso cake. His imaginative - never complicated - recipes have been written with an eye to the domestic kitchen and will inspire you at home.

About the author
Neil Perry's career in hospitality began at Sails restaurant at McMahons Point and in Rose Bay. Neil then became head chef at Barrenjoey Restaurant, Palm Beach and was also given creative control over Perry's in Paddington. In October 1986, he opened the Blue Water Grill at Bondi Beach and took the site from a 20 year failure to an overnight success. He then opened Rockpool in February 1989 with his business partner and cousin Trish Richards, with the intention of establishing one of Australia's finest restaurants. After only six months it was voted Sydney's best new restaurant in the Good Food Guide and over the years has gone on to win a long list of awards, both here and overseas. Rockpool is rated as one of the top restaurants in the world and the opening of his Rockpool Bar& Grill at the Crown Casino in Melbourne has been a stellar success. Neil has been creating
menus for Qantas for eleven years, redefining in-flight menus and service, and has his own Neil
Perry Fresh food products. He regularly travels as a guest chef, promoting Australian produce.
Neil's passion and the importance he places on quality produce is evident in all his dishes and the business projects he undertakes. Neil is author of five recipe books; Rockpool, Simply Asian, The Food I Love, Good Food and most recently, Balance and Harmony; 4 classical/recipe CDs; creator of Neil Perry Fresh food products in conjunction with Woolworths Supermarkets; and a television presenter on The LifeStyle Channel with whom he has produced several series including Food Source, Fresh & Fast and Rockpool Sessions.
