Michael Harden is the author of Lygon Street: stories and recipes from Melbourne's melting pot. The history of this famous Carlton street is told in words and pictures - its early development and architecture and the ethnic communities, especially the Jewish and Italian communities, who have helped give the street its character. Lygon Street conjures up images of restaurants and food and each chapter of the book contains recipes from restaurants associated with Lygon Street - a history conveyed by food. The book will appeal to those interested in the history of street as well as those wanting recipes of some of the meals they have enjoyed. A wonderful book to delve into and enjoy.
