Other sections of the book include: Starters and Snacks; Soups; Vegetables; Meat and Poultry; and Seafood. Some of our favourite savory recipes include: Goat's Cheese Tartlets; Thai Fish Cakes; Fast Basil Beef; and Quiche Lorraine.
What we love about this book is that the recipes are all family style favourites. My family prefers good hearty meals without too many fancy ingredients, and that is what this book delivers. It is the sort of recipes that you could make for a family dinner or for a special occasion. All the recipes include a description of the dish and a food memory from the contributor. The recipes are all beautifully photographed and styled, with a full page photo devoted to each recipe. We always look for great photography when choosing cookbooks.
Australia's Favourite Recipes has been collated and edited by television host, Leila McKinnon; and part proceeds from the sales will be donated to Legacy. It is a beautiful book and would make a lovely gift for a home cook.
