About the Author

Ann Reardon is the creator and host of How to Cook That, the #1 baking series in Australia and #3 in the US. Reardon is a certified scientist and dietician. After many years in food service, she started the How to Cook That channel out of Sydney, Australia in 2009. Reardon came up with the idea as she was night nursing her third-born son. She began with a post a week, and an occasional video. As her platform grew, she moved to YouTube and her followers grew. How to Cook focuses on desserts and pop-culture.

This is the story of a remarkable survival. Labassa has endured nine owners, a conversion into flats, sixty years of sporadic maintenance and more than 700 residents. That it survives with most of its 1890 decoration intact is largely due to those for whom Labassa was their ‘house of dreams’. 

Author and historian Vicki Shuttleworth, takes readers on a journey through Labassa’s many metamorphoses and a cavalcade of intriguing residents including millionaires, fraudsters, movie stars, refugees, artists and bohemians. The mansion’s eleventh-hour rescue by the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) is also told for the first time. 

This lavishly designed book includes a foreword by Barry Owen Jones AC, endnotes, index and over 100 photos, many specially commissioned for the book.
