“This land is cursed; the animals hop not run, birds run, not fly and the swans are black not white”. SO WROTE one of the first Europeans to set foot on Australia, Dirk Hartog, as he sailed away from the west coast in 1688.
I can’t wait to get home and embrace the native foods of my home country, something I hardly did when I lived in Australia. I recently found this PDF floating around the internet and it looks like it’s got some pretty interesting recipes. It’s mostly fusion food, but exciting none the less.
