Sunday's Kitchen

Food and Living At Heide

Lesley Harding, Kendrah Morgan
Sunday's Kitchen tells the story of food and living at Heide, the home of John and Sunday Reed.
Sunday Reed was a passionate cook and gardener, who believed in home-grown produce, seasonal cooking and a communal table. Sunday's Kitchen tells the story of food and living at the home of John and Sunday Reed, two of Australia's most significant art benefactors. Settling on the fifteen-acre property in 1935, the Reeds transformed it from a run-down dairy farm into a fertile creative space for artists such as Sidney Nolan, Albert Tucker, Joy Hester and Charles Blackman. Richly illustrated with art, photographs-many previously unpublished-and recipes from Sunday's personal collection, Sunday's Kitchen recreates Heide's compelling and complex story.
