Recipes from Australia's best country restaurants and guesthouses.
Whenever overseas chefs and food buffs visit our shores, one thing they all rave about is our fresh ingredients. Over the last twenty years as Australians have become more and more engrossed with food and a distinctly Australian cuisine, country people have realised that they are the ones who are sitting on this gold mine of fresh ingredients.
Once, no matter what region they were in, Australians had to eat the same old bland food. But there's been a quiet revolution. Now, different regions grow their own special produce - the things they grow best - and our country chiefs have seized the moment.
'Fine Food From Country Australia' has sought out fifty of our top country restaurants and presents their menus and recipes, season by season. The book includes well known names like Darley's Leeuwin Estate, Mount Lofty House, Franklin Manor and Peregian Park Homestead, and many many more. Beautifully produced with sumptuous full colour photographs, this major collection of Australian country cooking will be a treasured addition to your cooking collection.
