One Continuous Picnic: A Gastronomic History of Australia
Australians first confronted the oddities of their national cuisine when this gastronomic classic appeared 25 years ago.ĉBecauseĉAustralia never had a peasant farming classĉwith local cooking customs, the book explains, camp foodĉbecame the mainstay of theĉAussieĉdining tradition. Portable weekly rations of mutton, flour, and teaĉhad turned the early settlers into a mobile army, and their suburbanite descendants still survive on tins of jam, condensed milk, camp pie, and beer.ĉA cry for action, the book successfully launched a newĉAustralianĉtaste forĉfresh produce, farm markets, and international flavors more than two decades one that still exists today.
