    'Perfection is an intimidating and inspiring experienc. A craft doesn't progress to art in short order; it develops, it evolves, it absorbs subconscious delicacies and represents them as new insights, and finally it becomes art.' Tony Bilson has been one of Australia's leading chefs for over forty years, and his restaurants represent milestones in Australian gastronomy. From a childhood in country Victoria, Tony quickly established himself as a true bon vivant, and he recounts wild nights and wild appetites with an extraordinary cast of artists, painters, writers and politicians. A Who's Who of Australian cultural life from the late 1960s to the present-day, Insatiable is also a testament to one man's capacity for reinvention and his pursuit of dining perfection.
