Native produce business is booming and it’s about to enter a new phase — Australian native ingredients are beginning to turn up in growers’ markets and even local supermarkets. From Warrigal greens and saltbush, to kangaroo and yabbies — John Newton will inspire you to grab some and take it home.
The Oldest Foods on Earth shows you how to cook with Australian ingredients, where to find them and how to grow them. Organised by ingredient, each chapter includes a brief history, a practical guide, and recipes for you to make in your very own kitchen. It promises to broaden Australians’ culinary horizons in every way.
