“I am not a chef, never have been. I am a cook who feeds the community I work in. I care about the people I feed.”

Guy Mirabella was born in Melbourne and raised on the Mornington Peninsula where he lives with his family. He is currently happily juggling the complexities of running his daytime cafe, Shop Ate cafe and Store in Mount Eliza. In 2008 Guy wrote, designed and cooked his most ambitious cookbook project yet, Eat Ate, it won Best designed cookbook for 2008.

Eat Ate is much more than a design exercise. It’s a memoir, a bowerbird collection of images and souvenirs, thoughts and vignettes from an interesting Italian/Australian life. A life lived with food at its source. To anyone in love with Italy, Italianess, food and the enrichment of the Australian soul that has come from a generation of Italian migrants, Eat Ate is a treasure, a uniquely Australian book”. -John Lethlean.
