Think of Tasmania and chances are two of the first things you associate with the island are natural beauty and fresh food. Just a half hour drive south of the capital, lies a valley that combines the two quite perfectly.

The Huon Valley mixes a landscape of mountains and rivers with fields and orchards using a stunning palette of colours and a diverse collection of characters and tastes. It's all beautifully captured in a brand new book, A Table in the Valley by Elaine Reeves and Steve Cumper with inspired stunning photography by Paul County.

Enter below and you could be pulling up a chair to the table as well with two copies of this beautiful Tasmanian book to be won!

It's one of the most diverse food producing regions in the country and home to generational farmers as well as newly christened locals; like food critic Matthew Evans who took us all on his personal journey in the TV series, The Gourmet Farmer. He writes in the foreword "This book, and this little corner of Australia, is about (wood-fired, sourdough) bread broken together at the table. It’s about stories told, dreams chased, relationships cemented over the communal act of eating. It’s about the good things in life; a bountiful land celebrated by the people who inhabit it. And celebrated by those who share the same philosophy captured in these pages."

Tasmania was known as The Apple Isle because of the Huon Valley and there are tales to tell, sorry and triumphant, associated with the industry. Where once the orchards were being laid bare, now heirloom apples are creating multi award-winning craft ciders like Willie Smith's.

Winemakers too have made their home amongst the orchards with some, like Home Hill, fulfilling their their dreams of creating nationally acclaimed pinot noir.

But there's far more to uncover in this valley with its cheese, sushi, CWA, roadside stalls with honesty boxes and farms with free ranging everything. It's the combination of the food, the camaraderie of the people and of course, the stunning countryside.

Food journalist Elaine Reeves brings the stories to light and chef Steve Cumper plates up the recipes while photographer Paul County again captures the nuances of the landscape, this time from the perspective of one with five generations of Huon Valley residents standing behind him.

Another wonderful book that is distinctly Tasmanian and shows the deep talent and passion of all the locals, new and old.

Warning: likely to engender mouthwatering and travel plans!
