David Herbert has been obsessed with food since childhood. Growing up in a small seaside town, his spare time was spent fishing and thinking of new ways to cook his daily catch. David is the author of The Perfect Cookbook, More Perfect Recipes, Picnics, Complete Perfect Recipes, The Really Useful Cookbook, David Herbert's Best-ever Baking Recipes and David Herbert (Lantern Cookery Classics). He writes for The Weekend Australian Magazine and is a regular contributor to numerous other magazines.
David is currently living and working in London, surrounded by his kitchen treasures, cookbooks and copper saucepans.
