A collection of tried and tested, family favourite Australian recipes from the members of The Country Women's Association of Victoria Inc.
The recipes gathered here come from the wonderful cooks of The Country Women's Association of Victoria Inc., some of whom would never have envisaged that their recipes would still be in such demand. The 185 tested and true recipes in this book have been shared countless times between friends and published as community cookbooks to raise funds for cash-strapped good causes. Food tastes may have changed and evolved, but these recipes stand the test of time - Tex Mex Fish with Crispy Potato Slices to feed a hungry family, Lamb, Lentil and Rosemary Soup to give as a gift to a neighbour who might need a helping hand, or Orange Poppyseed and Cardamon Biscuits to share with a friend with a strong cup of tea. There are recipes for breakfasts, morning teas, soups, salads, vegetarian dishes, main meals, jams, chutneys and preserves, updated with additional tips and hints to ensure success for the most inexperienced modern cook.
The Country Women's Association of Victoria Inc. was formed on 12 March 1928. It is a self-funded, non-party-political, non-sectarian organisation which aims to improve conditions for women and children and make life better for families, especially those living in rural and remote Australia. The Country Women's Association of Victoria Inc. is actively involved in ongoing campaigns to fundraise for those affected by drought and the recent bushfire emergency.
