Memories of an Australian Country Kitchen... 'I hope that together we can renew the spirit of rural Australia and reflect on what country cooks have achieved: food traditions and kitchen techniques to celebrate in years to come'.
Author, columnist and food commentator Kate McGhie is a farmer's daughter, born into seven generations who worked and respected the land. Their farm in rural Victoria produced everything the family ate: dairy and beef cattle, sheep and goats; chickens and ducks, and geese patrolling the yard; an abundant vegetable garden - the starting point of every dish; and a potato patch with several acres of earthy goodness. The orchard was shared: the lower third for possums, the top third for birds and middle section for the family - a botanical United Nations of co-existence.
In this beautiful book filled with stories of rural life and over 200 recipes, Kate McGhie writes with wit and warmth as she explores the foundations and flavour of Australian country cooking. She draws on the tradition of classic, tried and true dishes but also includes contemporary interpretations for today's table. Woven throughout is the practical wisdom of the country cooks of yesteryear, and their joyful understanding of the relationship between soil and seasons, food and taste.
