Guillaume Brahimi is one of Australia's most celebrated and awarded chefs. If his nightly appearances on Plat du Tour are anything to go by, he's also one of our warmest, friendliest and personable chefs. Which is why we are so excited to share his book, Food for Family.

Meilleures maisons et nourriture

In Food for Family, Brahimi visits some of Australia's most charming and stylish homes, creating delicious menus inspired by the people and place, and discovering what makes a house a home. For instance, he pops in for a laid-back lunch with Justin Hemmes in his harbourside maison, cooks up a Greek feast in the heritage cottage of Mark Bouris and heads to the country to create an enviable winter luncheon for Cate Blanchett.

Homecooking as well as entertaining

It's an eye-popping collection of homes and food, but it always feels accessible because Brahimi is just so approachable. He generously shares his own go-to meals that satisfy his family night after night. As befits a lucky family with a resident French chef, we're talking more crispy potato cakes with speck, garlic and thyme than spag bol.

Or at least dreaming that Brahimi would come make dinner for your family each night...

The recipes are so clearly laid out and explained that we're confident you'll soon be feeding your clan French-chef-style too. Or at least dreaming that Brahimi would come make dinner for your family each night...

Some of our favourite Brahimi recipes on SBS Food
Smoked salmon croque monsieur

The croque monsieur was popularised in Paris cafés as a quick snack. It's a hot sandwich typically made with ham and cheese, but Guillaume has given it a boutique re-design using smoked salmon in place of ham.

Paris mash

Parisian chef Joël Robuchon created pommes purée in the early 1980s. In France, the puree is made with ratte potatoes, medium-starch fingerlings. Guillaume has dubbed it 'Paris Mash' because "when I first moved to Australia, my mum would send me copies of the tabloid magazine, 'Paris Match' so I would know what was going on in my home town," he says. "It morphed into a dish."

Apple tarte Tatin with cinnamon ice-cream

A dark and sticky sweet treat accompanied by perfectly crisp pastry. According to legend, tarte Tatin was invented by mistake in the 1880s, when a hotelier tried to disguise a burnt apple tart.
