Yumi Stynes is a Sydney-based broadcaster who was slayed by the transcendental powers of rock music when she was way too young and turned fandom into a career. Meanwhile, she also made four babies, works a couple of other jobs and celebrates life by cooking, eating and sharing delicious things.
As a follow-up to Yumi Stynes' successful first book, The Zero Fucks Cookbook, Zero Fucks Endless Summer continues in her signature style - with sass and attitude and excellent ideas for food that is delicious and kind to your body, but does not call for hours in the kitchen. Across 90 recipes, Yumi celebrates one of the things she loves most about Australia, which is the incredible quality and accessibility of good produce and the fact that because it tastes so good, it is shamelessly easy to work with. Even when you are running on zero fucks. The book contains eight chapters: No cook Wonders (from salad to slaw to silken tofu); Endless Barbecue (a Yumi speciality, whatever the weather); Dips & Bits (for young kids and old); Oh Crap, It's Dinner Time (because that is the refrain of multi-taskers the world over); Sweet Miracles (exhibit A = Goddess Loaf); On With The Oven; and Low Stress Impress (because entertaining is meant to be fun). As well, she will share wisdom and ideas based on some of her favourite food topics: Eating all the Colours; Barbecue Know-How; Stocking the Pantry; Surviving Celebrations. And more! Ultimately, it is food that makes you feel good, food that celebrates the yumminess inherent in simple ingredients, food that encourages a 'no worries' attitude.

There was never anything wrong with instant ramen. But there was never anything wrong with not being on the moon, either. That didn't stop Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and that other guy* from changing the course of human history with a few daring steps and a super dope catchphrase. So too shall journalist and blogger Josh Scherer change the course of late-night, often-insane, sometimes-smart-but-always-monstrous munchie food that puts your MSG packet garbage to shame. You'll find more than seventy creations broken into the ten "brossential" food groups like: Beer, Fried Things, Tacos, and Struggle Snacks (because money is hard). Josh's recipes range from indulgent eats like Beer-Poached Bratwurst Party Subs and Mac 'n' Cheese Nachos to hella-classy dishes like Broccolini with Burnt Lemon Hollandaise and Pork Belly Tacos with Fish Sauce Caramel. Sprinkled in are the unholy commandments for bro cooking, such as "bagged wine is the only wine you need," and Josh's expert advice on how to beat a hangover (it's mostly just pastrami and emotionally purging movies). The Culinary Bro-Down Cookbook is full of irreverent essays and anecdotes, but running throughout is a deep sense of soul and self that strives to answer the question: Why can't the deep-fried nonsense you eat with your bros at 2 a.m. have the same emotional gravitas as an intimate family dinner? Oh and there's bacon, too. Like, a lot of it. *It's Michael Collins, you uncultured swine
A Childhood Memory is about a family that was divided by a mother who deserted her children for a new life. Five children were sent to live with their Grandmother and Grandfather, which were 67 years old. After one year the children were returned to their dad, where they would be separated for over twenty-five years. The story is told of how their Grandparents raised them. The death of the children's' father, and later their grandparents. The story is full of the love that their Grandparents gave, which hasn't been forgotten by the children over the years.
