Australia Day is an opportunity to reflect on our nation’s history – a story that began 60,000 years ago. Celebrate the diversity of this country we’re so lucky to call home with a range of mouth-watering dishes. They’re perfect to share with friends on the day or enjoy year-round.
If you’re short on time, these tasty treats will be your go-to. There’s no baking required and the prep time is just 1 hour. And who doesn’t love lamingtons!
This easy relish is great with steaks and burgers. Keep any leftover in a sterilised jar in the fridge for up to 3 months.
Simple and flavoursome, with easy to find ingredients, these pies will be a hit with all ages. They pair well with a glass of red wine, and they’re perfect to freeze so you can whip them out to feed the troops at a moment’s notice.
Here’s the perfect recipe for when you want to “slip another shrimp on the barbie” as Paul Hogan famously said in the Australian Tourism Commission advertisements from the 1980s.
You’ll need to set aside a few hours to prep this, but it’s an easy and good-looking dessert that taps into the nostalgia of our youth, when Iced Vovos were such a treat!
