Australia Cooks by Kelli Brett


There's no doubt that the food culture in regional Australia is flourishing. From Capricornia to Tasmania, the Kimberley to the Hunter, our food growers and artisans supply us with some of the best produce the world has to offer.

And now, in Australia Cooks, the locals get to share their best-kept secrets, favourite ingredients and most-treasured recipes with you..

Featuring over 60 of the best recipes sent in by home cooks, an additional 20 stories and recipes from chefs who have built their businesses on championing home-grown produce and provedores, and gorgeous photography throughout, Australia Cooks celebrates those three crucial ingredients – passionate people, beautiful, fresh food and stunning landscapes – that make our food culture so vibrant and unique.

Travel through regional Australia via your tastebuds, sampling everything from Maroochy River mud crab cakes to Bruny Island baked eggs, and Bega Valley brunch cheese tart to Taylors Arm beef skirt with pepperberry and bush tomato rub, and meet the talented foodies that make our cuisine world-class – and banish the meat and three veg for good!

No one knows food and the people who grow it, produce it and cook it like Kelli Brett. An award-winning food journalist, she was previously host of ABC radio show ‘The Main Ingredient with Kelli Brett’, which won the World’s Best Food and Wine Radio Program award at Le Cordon Bleu World Food Media Awards, and is currently editor of Cuisine magazine.

Australia Cooks is edited and conceived by Kelli Brett and published by Harper Collins in partnership with ABC Books.(Sydney, NSW, May 2016,HC, 272pp, RRP A$49.99)
