The Double Happiness Cookbook: 88 Feel-Good Recipes and Food Stories

Toronto is a renowned food mecca, born out of a cultural identity defined by the unified culinary tradition of a vibrant multicultural community. It is a city that has shaped and defined one passionate chef who abandoned his corporate job to throw on an apron and to get into the kitchen, behind the bar, and in front of diners.

Almost immediately, his Taiwanese fried chicken was voted best in the city, fans queued for his notorious ramen burger, and his sensational Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich brought in the masses.

The Double Happiness Cookbook is a riveting exploration of Trevor Lui’s tireless culinary journey that began in the kitchen of a family restaurant with sweet and sour chicken balls and chow mein and eventually drew inspiration from the streets of Toronto, LA, New York, and Taiwan.

Featuring feel-good, Asian-inspired recipes with a big-city attitude—think BBQ pork on rice, bulgogi beef tostadas, sweet chili cauliflower wings, and ramen with L.A. Kalbi—this heartening cookbook is an authentic celebration of heritage, community, street culture, and food philosophy. It is eighty-eight recipes, eight compelling stories, and one man’s dream.

Wagamama Ways With Noodles by Hugo Arnold

Hugo Arnold turns his attention to wagamama’s core expertise—noodles: how to cook, serve and eat them. The distinctive wagamama flavour originates from traditional Japanese ramen stalls that guaranteed nourishment with ingredients to cleanse and nurture the mind and body. Hugely versatile, noodles can be used in side dishes and dressed for salads, poached in a heady broth for soups, form a nest for meat, fish and vegetable stir-fries or used as a bed for curry. They are healthy too: high in complex carbohydrates, low in fat, and mostly served with fresh vegetables, lean meat or fish and aromatic herbs and spices.
Brush up on your noodle knowledge and get to know your soba from your somen. Try mouthwatering recipes including wide-noodle hot-pot with seven vegetables, warm chicken teriyaki salad, chargrilled chicken, soba and miso soup, and marinated salmon ramen. Look no further for delicious noodle recipes for every occasion; minimum fuss and maximum enjoyment are what wagamama noodles are all about.

Skillet Fried Chicken, The Hot Chicken Project by Aaron Turner. Photography by Julian Kingma.

The Hot Chicken Project is more than the sum of its parts. Yes, it’s a cookbook, but it’s also a narrative, a photographic celebration and most importantly, it’s Aaron Turner’s love letter to his obsession. This book is about immersing yourself into the world of hot chicken. So, to plunge you into this journey along with Aaron, we have a fun offer.

For acclaimed Australian chef Aaron Turner, hot chicken isn’t just food—it’s salvation in crispy, fried and devilishly spicy form. In The Hot Chicken Project, he travels back to Nashville, the place of its birth, to pay his respects to the makers, to chart the love and obsession that has shaped his world, and to make sure that what he does back home is doing it justice. Part cookbook, part pilgrimage, The Hot Chicken Project is both an epic love letter to the fiery bird and a celebration of a way of life that is in danger of vanishing forever.

The Hot Chicken Project is part recipe book (40 recipes covering the best mains, sandwiches, sides, salads and sauces), part narrative, part pictorial celebration of the history and power hot chicken holds over the city of Nashville—and now beyond (including Melbourne!). (more…)
