Matthew Evans has been a food writer for more than two decades. He also presents an SBS television show called Gourmet Farmer. In 2014 he presented a documentary called What's The Catch, and in October and November 2016, he will be the face of For The Love of Meat, a three-part documentary upon which this book is based, and which will also screen on SBS.
Matthew lives in rural Tasmania, where he moved from inner-city Sydney in 2008. His property, Fat Pig Farm, has been the location for much of the Gourmet Farmer series. He is in the process of establishing a restaurant on the farm - which he expects to have opened this year.
