A MATTER OF TASTE

Published by Hachette Livre Australia, 2008

This season's fashions are good enough to eat; in fact they are entirely edible. In A Matter of Taste Fulvio Bonavia fuses haute couture with cuisine with results that are guaranteed to tantalize fashionistas and foodies alike. Step out in style in a pair of corn espadrilles. A tagliatelle belt makes for a delicious main course, but should always be worn al dente. Later, for dessert, you can dine on fruit-paste bangles and a cheese necklace, then dance the night away in a pair of aubergine slippers. Accompanying Fulvio's images is a delightful culinary text by New Zealand's 'queen of food', writer Peta Mathias, ensuring that each item is worn with delectable style. May you never go hungry, or naked, again...
