My Aussie Cookbook

Publication Date: 01/11/2011

  $16.99
From snaggers on the barbie to dainty desserts for dames, Stew a Cockatoo is the cookbook that every Australian has been waiting for. Not only is this book jam-packed (no pun intended) with good ol' Aussie recipes but it's full of anecdotal stories about how our cuisine came to be and fair dinkum definitions for words and phrases like 'bush tucker' and 'spuds'. Bet you didn't know there were over 10 different types of Aussie sausage - beef snag, chook snag, pork snag, lamb snag, tofu snag, any kind of meat snag, sav, mystery bag and kanga banger.
