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 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.
