Ask Tim White at Books for Cooks anything about food and he’ll think for a moment, climb up a shelf or two, and pull out the one book you never knew you needed. Tim’s a food lover’s oracle, with a collection respected among Melbourne’s restaurant heavyweights. Into nose-to-tail cuisine? Want to sharpen your knife skills? Fancy trying out tripe recipes from vintage cookbooks circa 1850? They'll order books for you if they don’t have what you’re after, too. It’s customer service like Tim’s that can awaken the chef in even the most two-minute-noodle loving philistine.
