In Dining with Divers - Tales from the Kitchen Table, Simon Pridmore and David Strike invite you to join them at their table to listen to stories and try dishes served up by a gathering of some of the great and the good of the scuba diving world. Explorers, record-breakers, innovators, designers, entrepreneurs and raconteurs all compete for your attention and taste buds in this first volume of a unique series of diving story cookbooks. For many divers, the next best thing to being underwater is talking about being underwater. And there is no better occasion for this than when sitting enjoying a meal together with like-minded friends. Simon and David knew that divers generally love to eat but they didn't expect to find that so many had such impressive culinary skills. The dishes they propose vary from cookouts to curries, from Thai salad to Flemish stew and from jellied eels to vegan cupcakes: there really is something for everyone. The personal accounts of underwater adventure range from discoveries of unknown shipwrecks to exploration in iceberg alley and encounters with big animals: each dive is a delight. You won't know whether to keep this book in the kitchen or on the bedside table. "It's great reading! Written as if the diver is telling the tale around the dinner table to friends. As a diver, I'm also inspired to visit some of the dive sites featured and see for myself. The recipes I love because they are "home cooking": dishes that "normal" people would like to have a go at making." Penelope Williams Executive Chef and Owner of Bali Asli Restaurant "From the first nail-biting story of up-close encounters with crocodiles to the last heart-warming description of how to make Pecan and Pear Bread by first growing a pear tree, Dining with Divers had me hooked from the first dip. Simon Pridmore and David Strike honour their fellow divers in this uplifting compilation of stories from the depths and recipes shared, making it not only a good read but a book to be revisited again and again." Monica Tindall - Editor, The Yum List "Anyone who has ever sat around a table with a bunch of divers, right after they get out of the water, will know that the word "dining" is something of a misnomer. "Gorging" would be better description of the vast, rapid intake of calories taking place. Divers DO love their food, and this book harnesses their passion for both the water and culinary worlds. This compilation of exploits underwater and at the stove stands tall amongst the many books by and about divers - as something entertaining, useful and memorable. Well done!" Rainer Sigel, Founder of Asian Diver Magazine and ADEX: now co-owner of Churrasco Phuket Steakhouse
