The Bookery Cook is the globe-spanning and startlingly clever project of three sisters, Jess, Maxine and Georgie. Starting out as simply as a family who loved flavours and food in the Sunshine Coast, they used their passion for creating recipes, love of art and the perfect kitchen soundtrack to put together a cook book that combined all three. Launching in 2013, The Bookery Cook brought together their family recipes with artists and illustrators from around the world interpreting each item from their mouth-watering menu. Since then they frequently update their blog with everything from marbled ravioli, glittered oysters to the perfect menu for the World Cup Semi-final and have just launched a quarterly journal of recipes named ‘Palate‘. Combined with their Instagram capturing their travels in search of the perfect eats, their tips for pre-dance floor snacks and knowledge of how to make alcohol from the bush, these sisters would be the perfect food bloggers to take to a deserted island. Or trap in your kitchen for a week.
