We honour Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' continuous connection to Country, waters, skies and communities. So, to help champions keep levelling up their cooking skills and making ripper feeds from scratch at home, Nat has created this collection of 25 shit hot recipes that will get you out of a jam. because it is completely normal and understandable to be bummed out after 18 months of lock-downs and pandemic dramas.

When he’s not filming, cooking or foraging for rosemary, Nat can often be found indulging his love of rock'n'roll and comedy, playing in various bands and stand-up rooms around Sydney. This is a great book and recommend taking the time to listen no matter what emotional state you are in. While some of these topics—like losing part of a lung after contracting TB—are deadly serious, others are downright hilarious.Ya see, Nat's got a loud mouth and a taste for taking the piss out of stuff—it's how he lives, laughs and loves. But you get the impression that he has found his passion which is what it is all about and he wants you to find your passion. The book supports people in managing these challenges and provides channels to deal with these issues. In response to the craziness he was seeing when COVID-19 crashed the party, Nat waged a war against processed food and launched a no-nonsense instructional video for one of his tried and true recipes.

We hear about his life and times and I’m really happy that for all the laughs that came with it; there was an emphasis on mental health. It does wander a little bit, and because it is this mix of memoir, cookbook, graphics, self help, a structural edit could have helped form it up a is all. Nat’s debut book Un-cook Yourself: A Ratbag’s Rules For Life topped bestseller lists in its first week of release and went on to win Booktopia’s Favourite Australian Book Award of 2020 (the proceeds of which Nat donated to Beyond Blue), and was nominated for Non-Fiction Book of the Year in the Australian Book Industry Awards. Nat makes abundant use of Aussie slang--and I think this is fine, because its intended audience is Australian fans. His views on mental health and its struggles are identifiable to everyone, and the underlying messages of being gentle on yourself, appreciating the small wins and simply striving for everyday happiness while not taking life to seriously is truly the honest truth we all need to hear!Uncook Yourself: A Ratbag’s Rules for Life was maybe perhaps not a book that I expected to see in an audiobook format. Nat's hilarious social commentary has collected him a fast-growing, dedicated audience of over two million along the way, and his videos have clocked up more than 100 million views across all platforms.

It's also written in his signature style - 'fucken' rather than 'fucking', 'ya' rather than 'your' - which got a little old by the end. It’s not a 5 star rating, only because as others said better than I did, it perhaps could have used a little more structural editing, but that’s being a bit pedantic. We celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stories, traditions and living cultures; and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. There’s enough knowledge contained in here to make you feel better about yourself (without classing it as a self help book) a fair bit of humour, directed at himself as well as others and the basic recipes that have made Nat the “champion” well needed during this shitty 2020. There are no questionable ingredients here: purely Nat's trademark humour, a big dash of cheekiness and some genuinely handy culinary tips to boot.Now that we’ve cooked our way out of lockdown and are wondering what the hell to do next, our favourite ratbag is back – and he’s ready to teach us more about life in this thoroughly unhelpful (but maybe actually kinda helpful? SHORTLISTED FOR ABIA GENERAL NON-FICTION BOOK OF THE YEAR 2021 Learn how to be a better d*ckhead with Nat's deep and meaningful guide to life. It properly made me laugh out loud and at the same time had me nodding along with so many of Nat's takes on life. His wife also makes a little cameo, and his issues of sexuality, the patriarchy and fairness are covered.
