This is a glorious celebration of the Australia we all want to see: off the beaten track. Dwyer and Hay take us through the country, track-by-track, town-by-town, with each destination serving up a history, a contemporary account, some fantastic photography, and a recipe. They come up with some amazing facts about our great land, for instance, the longest man-made structure on earth is not, after all, the Great Wall of China, but Australia's Dog Fence - 5400 km of wood and wire stretching from a beach in South Australia to the Bunya Mountains in Queensland. Its purpose is to exclude dingoes from a third of the continent.
The double-page spread shots of our dusty orange roads and deep blue skies, split by only scarce green foliage, fill your lungs with admiration of this great land. The recipes are designed to be made on the billy and grill - during your great antipodean escape - but are so delicious there is no reason why Mushrooms with Goat's Cheese and Almonds in Vine Leaves and Lamb Wrapped in Prosciutto with Aioli shouldn't be served up at home too! This divine book will be just as welcome on your coffee table as in the campervan, and has been sorted by ingredient (mushrooms taking entire glorious chapter to themselves!) so you may start looking for your tucker but find so much more in the journey to feed your soul...
This gloriously illustrated coffee table cookbook is not only a recipe book of 150 first-rate recipes, it is also a story of our nation's history, of both indigenous and western societies. Not the traditional bush tucker-type recipe book at all, it has sophisticated, mouth-watering recipes with exquisite photography by John Hay, a leading food photographer.
Andrew Dwyer has a passion for food and traveling and combining both loves; he runs expeditions through Australia's heartland.
Robustly road tested, who would have thought one could cook Lemon Chicken with couscous or chocolate almond figs poached in port? The recipes not only work superbly well in Outback Australia but also can be transferred to the home kitchen with ease.
The book also gives practical advice for outback travelers, including food & sundry items, what to pack, how to pack it, the best equipment, how to store and carry it.
There are also excellent pullout boxes and stories amongst the recipes which give histories of certain areas in Australia including the Simpson Desert, Oodnadatta Track, Coober Pedy, Adelaide, Uluru, Port Augusta, Longreach QLD, Birdsville Track.
