He is a senior features writer for the Fairfax Good Food and Epicure liftouts, and is the writer and creator of its popular 'Brain Food' column. He has co-written four books on Spanish food with MoVida chef Frank Camorra, and worked in Mexico researching and photographing a book on Mexican food culture. Richard appeared on the Australian version of Iron Chef, was co-creative director of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, and continues to consult to the organisation. A vocal commentator on food, food politics and sustainability, he lives in Melbourne with his partner, fashion designer Tiffany Treloar, daughters Ginger and Sunday, and a rambling vegetable garden.
Frank Camorra is chef and owner of the acclaimed MoVida restaurants in Melbourne and Sydney. Born in Barcelona, he grew up in Australia before a trip to his birthplace in 2000 inspired him to share his love of Spanish food. And so his stable of critically acclaimed and much-loved tapas bars and restaurants was born. Hidden down a gritty and graffiti-ed Melbourne laneway, MoVida was an instant hit, leading to MoVida Next Door and MoVida Aqui. Then came MoVida Sydney, along with venues at Melbourne and Sydney airports. Frank has co-authored four previous books, MoVida, MoVida Rustica, MoVida Cocina and MoVida's Guide to Barcelona.
