Surf Cafe Living is their second book, the follow-up to The Surf Cafe Cookbook. It features fifty delicious easy-to-make recipes, with the emphasis once again on using fresh, organic, seasonal produce.

Since the release of The Surf Cafe Cookbook Jane and Myles have also made a place of their own, transforming a rundown cottage into a contemporary beach house.
