Born of the desire to share the authors' own experiences and delights living, eating and exploring everyday life in the spectactular Blue Mountains of NSW, Local Heroes reveals secrets, treasures and an undiscovered dimension of the special destination west of Sydney.
“ Follow this trail and you’ll discover our Local Heroes – the people, the places and the food of the Blue Mountains” say Meryl and Melissa, the dynamic photographer and creative director duo behind this stunning new book.
"Local Heroes begins at the foothills on the western side of the Nepean River and winds its way up the Blue Mountains, stopping in at the villages that dot the landscape, to the top of Mount Victoria. Along the way, we share the region’s best coffee, the purest chocolate, masterfully produced breads and preserves as well as recipes from our favourite chefs." say the authors.
Amongst the stories are award winning chocolates of Josophans, sublime Nineteen23, fabulous coffee Pink Papaya and hatted Restaurant Como just to name a few - and yes Gingerbread Folk are in there too!
