In this episode we look at the life of Gay Bilson who is a former restaurateur, and now a writer and book reviewer. Her first book, Plenty: Digressions on Food was named the 2005 Age Book of the year. Ostensibly about food, Plenty was also a rich expression of Gay's life philosophy, one refined and generously shared in her latest book, On Digestion. Gay left her high profile and successful career as a restaurateur for a home in the country where time to read, cook and be alone has become her recipe for 'a good life'.
