In her follow-up to ‘The Blue Ribbon Cookbook,’ Liz Harfull continues her celebration of Australia’s talented amateur cooks and bakers, broadening her perspective to agricultural shows across the whole of Australia. As well as great (and reliable) recipes, the book gives readers unusual insight into local communities, regional recipes and their creators.

from the publisher

Every year hundreds of talented amateurs devote hours to preparing entries for cookery competitions run as part of 600 or so agricultural shows across Australia. In their quest for a precious blue ribbon, they use recipes based on generations of experience and strict judging codes that demand absolute perfection. In this follow-up to her first award-winning book, The Blue Ribbon Cookbook, Liz Harfull brings together 70 tried and true recipes from some of the country's most enthusiastic and talented show cooks. But more than that, in The Australian Blue Ribbon Cookbook Liz shares their heart-warming stories, and the wisdom, knowledge and generosity of spirit that brings success, even for novices. Whether it's a traditional Mixed Mustard Pickle or Madeira Cake, mouth-watering Sausage Rolls or Pumpkin Damper, Jenny's Jam Drops or Cousin Barb's Jelly Slice, there is something delicious for everyone to try. 'The spirit of the Australian country show permeates the pages of this marvellously nostalgic collection of show recipes, judges' hints and vintage images.' Gourmet Traveller
