Every country can be defined by the food they eat, and how they prepare and cook this food. The same is true for different states within many countries, or even down to particular regions. The extraordinary range of differing food preferences of the population of each country, state or region has an uncanny knack of capturing the essence of each area's personality, whether stodgy, optimistic, mean, generous, pleased with themselves, bold, passionate, laconic, pride in what they do, risk-takers, disciplined, over-bearing, particular, unimaginative, creative, challenging; and the list goes on.
This book richly captures the unique and powerful personality of those wonderful people who make up Australia's cattle station region; that vast, rugged and unforgiving yet mystical wilderness that is our cattle station country.
These cattle station recipes and stories bring alive the optimistic, resilient, sharing, enterprising, self-confident, risk-taking, creative, laconic and proud free spirits that characterise our cattle station communities.
