This collection of recipes and stories from the heart of rural Australia was created with love by some of Australia's best loved chefs and cooks, as well as by farmers, families and friends in the food industry at a time of great need.
All profits from the sale of this book go to CWA of Australia, to help farmers who have suffered during one of our country's greatest ever drought.
There are 80 recipes from home kitchens around Australia, large and small - from Maggie Beer's hearty and warm roast chicken and Stephanie Alexander's 7 hour roast lamb, to silverside from a travelling cattle drover and a never-fail chocolate cake from a Longreach farmer.
This cookbook and stories is the brainchild of Jody Vassallo, a NSW south coast local. The book is an inspiring example of how people can pull together in tough times.
