Uhm. Really? So, where are the meat pies, lamington etc? No lamb roast? (kanga)Roo is not a favourite apparently.
Pho is perhaps too complicated to try at home. Good to see the Asian presence there with fried rice and butter chicken.
Ohhhh, but you gotta read this. From the same article on The Age.
“The godmother of Australian cooking, Margaret Fulton – whose first cookbook in 1968 contained most of these recipes – finds the fact that so many people are using new technology to search for old-fashioned recipes rather baffling.
“It seems like a lot of effort to go to when you could just look up a recipe book,” she says. “Recipe books are far more practical and you’ll know exactly the source of the recipe and whether you can trust it.”
A recipe book is more practical than googles? Perhaps Ms Fulton does not know the power of web and food blogs, yet. I hope someone can show her.
Not sure about you but I thank all the food blogs out there for introducing me to new dishes, so I don´t get stuck with same old recipes all the time. (I still love cookbooks though!)
I just contribute to the statistics by searching for an Osso Bucco recipe. You hear me?
