As an added bonus, they kindly offered three recipes that I can publish to tantalise your taste buds.
Thanks guys and good luck with the new book.

HOME COOK, ASPIRING CHEF
REINVENTIONS OF CLASSICS FROM THE WINNERS OF MY KITCHEN RULES
FOREWARD BY COLIN FASSNIDGE | PHOTOGRAPHY BY WILLIAM MEPPEM
More than 100 spectacular recipes suitable for both the home cook and the aspiring chef from the winners of My Kitchen Rules 2015, Will and Steve.
Home Cook, Aspiring Chef contains more than 100 recipes inspired by Will and Steve’s passion for freshness, flavour, and damn good food. A combination of their English heritage, their appreciation for Australian produce – and a desire to reinvent the classics – their innovative twists on traditional and time-honoured techniques, result in some spectacular recipes.
Taking apart such popular retro dishes as Coronation Chicken, Scotch Eggs, Steak Sandwiches and Apple Crumble, they reimagine them, with exciting results; unexpected textures and beautifully balanced flavor-ways, combine in recipes that are both original and delicious.
Each chapter features a detailed masterclass that focuses on an important technique, such as pickling, or making parfait, and shows how even the most timid of cooks can master dishes like crispy pork belly.
In the ‘Home Cook, Aspiring Chef’ chapter, Will and Steve showcase their different approach to food. Using the same ingredients to create two contrasting dishes – Will’s hearty but beautifully executed home cooking and Steve’s meticulous, elegant gourmet fare – they illustrate different techniques and approaches.
The book features five chapters: Brunch, Soups and Sarnies; Shared Plates; Home Cook, Aspiring Chef; Dinner, Sides and Salads; and Sweets or Treats. Beautifully photographed by William Meppem, one of Australia's premium food and lifestyle photographers, the flavour-packed creativity and inventiveness of these recipes, makes this one of the must-have cookbooks this year, for aspiring chefs and home cooks alike.

Will and Steve appeared on hit Australian cooking show My Kitchen Rules in 2015 and were the first all-male team to take out the title in the history of the show. Over 3.1 million people tuned in to watch the final nationally and the show has since been released internationally with love coming in for the boys from all corners of the world.
Since their win, they have formed their own business, The Gourmet Pommies Pty Ltd, and ‘are actively pursuing a career in the food and television industry.’
