Fusion Cookbook cover


The book Peter had wanted to write for the past 20 years, Fusion is a recipe book, a travelogue and a history of some of his favourite ingredients from around the world.

"Food is on the move and it's always been that way - to force it to conform to political boundaries smacks just a little of culinary fascism. It's a great read and my favourite book so far."

Fusion Cookbook cover

"Growing up in Wanganui, New Zealand, my siblings and I each had our own patch of garden and we used to compete to produce the most tomatoes and beans. My sister Tracey inevitably won - although I'm sure she had more fertile soil than I did!"

Here, vegetables are the hero: they take either centre stage for a vegetarian meal, or they are the supporting cast that lifts the meat or fish hero to new heights. Serialised in The Sunday Times Style magazine.

Fusion Cookbook cover


"I took as my starting point the fact that at The Providores we're often asked to serve our starter salads as a main course, especially at lunch time. People want lighter food, food that appeals in taste and texture, and salads always look great. Here there are salads with meat, fish and grains, salads served warm and cold, and even some tasty dessert salads."
Also serialised in The Sunday Times Style magazine.

Fusion Cookbook cover


"I have been creating recipes and writing for New Zealand House and Garden for over 10 years now. This book is a compilation of those recipes, and includes glowing cover credits from Charlie Trotter and Jamie Oliver. The recipes are perhaps my simplest, written specifically for the home cook and for people who don't have access to Asian markets and the like."

Fusion Cookbook cover


"My second book, released in 1999, tackled the fact that I'd convinced people to buy all sorts of exotic ingredients like fish sauce, lime leaves, pomegranate molasses and palm sugar. While these may seem like standard pantry items now - they certainly weren't back then."
Serialised in The Times.

Fusion Cookbook cover


"This is the first book I wrote. The Sugar Club restaurant opened originally in 1986 in Wellington, New Zealand. It was owned and set up by Ashley Sumner and Vivian Hayman and they employed me as head chef. The second Sugar Club opened on All Saints Road in Notting Hill, London, in 1995. It was an immediate success and I was asked by publishers Hodder and Stoughton to write a book of the restaurant's recipes. Having never written more than a letter before then, I bought myself an Apple Mac and set about learning how to type. I am very proud of this book, and through it I introduced Fusion recipes to the marketplace. It was serialised in The Independent on Sunday. It still sells around the world, having been translated into Dutch, with an American edition as well. The Sugar Club moved into Warwick Street in London's Soho in 1998, and I left the role of head chef in late 1999."

Fusion Cookbook cover


"Over the years I've contributed to many other books in different ways. Among them is the large chapter I wrote about flavourings in Dorling Kindersley's wonderful The Cook's Book. Neale Whitaker also included me as one of his food heroes in The Accidental Foodie. I've contributed recipes to East West Food, a burger to Paul Gayler's The Gourmet Burger and several others".
