Beyond the Farm Gate by Danielle Costley takes you on a culinary journey through Australia's Southwest.   

It’s a journey that’s both breathtaking and yet deeply communal, at one with the people, places and produce that are home to the South West Region. Here, the food is very much an expression of craftsmanship and, at times, the very lifeblood of the community.

Beyond the Farm Gate  celebrates and pays tribute to the artisan food growers who are dedicated to the art of producing flavoursome, high quality produce.  Danielle Costley's in depth interviews with 31 growers reveal the interesting and diverse backgrounds of these food growers some of who share recipes that have been passed down from one generation to another. 

Embark on a food-finding mission that begins with a unique berry that earned its name from a Tiger snake, unearth the rare and elusive black Perigord truffle, pop beads of citrus caviar in your mouth or pluck a Greenlip abalone from the pristine waters of Flinders Bay. Savour dry-salted organic capers, or sample fresh, oozingly decadent jarrah honeycomb straight from a beehive.

Beautifully photographed by Chris Gurney, Beyond the Farm Gate unlocks the stories and secret recipes from a melting pot of flavours and influences. This book will want to make you pack your bags and disappear for a few days on a gastronomic adventure that will leave you craving more.

Danielle Costley is an author, journalist and avid foodie. She has worked with many well-known chefs, who have inspired her to learn more about sourcing and buying locally-grown seasonal food. Her passion for exceptional regional food that speaks of its origins has driven her to write a book celebrating not only her ‘food finds’ but the wonderful growers whose dedication to quality has changed Western Australia’s food scene.

Danielle lives in the South West with her young family and has spent the last two years travelling around this food lover’s paradise, discovering a bounty of local produce. And now she is inviting you into the homes of these farmers who share their stories and recipes with you on this gastronomic food trail which captures the beauty of the South West and its inherent connection with food.
