Brendan Murphy was born in Manchester, England. He has worked in the Hospitality Industry since 1980 and qualified as a chef in 1985.

Brendan lived, travelled and worked extensively throughout the UK, Europe, Asia and Australia during the 80s and 90s before settling in Western Australia with his family

He worked as a Cookery and Hospitality Lecturer at Curtin
University, Perth. He also writes for the local Swan Magazine under the name of Chef-Explorer which combines his love of good real food, travel, culture and teaching.

His aim is to entice families and especially children to join him and explore great food and culture themselves and get back around the table as a family should do, and discuss their findings.

His first book in the 'Chef Explorer Series'; A Taste of the World was published in 2010, and it is just that, a taste of great food and travel stories, plucked from Brendan's 30 years of experience.

This next book is an extension of that theme. With an added extra multi-dimensional 'ingredient' thrown in the pot; Football!

In celebration of the Football World Cup he has now produced A Taste of The World a collection of anecdotes, recipes and tips and reflections on the World Cup, country by country.

The books are informally written in a relaxed, chatting across the counter while we're peeling spuds kind of way and are warm and occasionally witty.

Available only as an e-Book it costs $7 and is available from either the website of author or publisher.
