Louise Slice with Davidson Plum PreserveI think just about every country kitchen and CWA club has got a recipe for this slice, probably all pretty similar and I can still remember my mother cooking it and the wonderful smell as it cooked in the oven, it was a favourite with us all. It was originally a cake, called The Louise Cake, created for Queen Victoria's daughter, Princess Louise, at her wedding. Most likely our intrepid early British pioneering ladies bought the recipe with them and its been made for generations ever since. I love using Davidson Plum jam on this slice as the tart jam works perfectly with the sweetness of the pastry and topping. Good memories and lots of YUMMMMM
Davidson Plum SauceA unique tart fruit that resembles the European plum but with mix of tangy acidity and sweetness. This sauce can be used for desserts or this is the perfect sauce for kangaroo, any game meats, beef or even chicken. An optional touch of chilli add another dimension.
Wattleseed PancakesThe flavour of wattleseed goes so well with these pancakes. Must admit I dont know anyone who doesnt love pancakes and they really are so versitile, you can add any sort of topping for a sweet treat or a great meal. Use this recipe as a basic pancake mix and take out the sugar if you want a more savoury pancake, add a pinch of  Saltbush and some Pepperberry for a truly outback bush pancake.
Wattle seed & Choc Chip CookiesEat your heart out Cookie Monster, these little scrumptious morsels with Australian native Wattleseed and Choc Chip are perfect I made these delicious little brownies for two students staying with me, it was exam time and a little comfort food never goes astray.
Sticky Date Pudding with Macadamia NutsWho doesn’t love Sticky Date Pudding? Chef Justin Jennings has shared his amazing recipe that’s on the menu at his new “Australian” restaurant in Lisbon, Portugal. Fantastic food, great atmosphere. We spoke with Justin on The Aussie Radio Show about his new restaurant and living in Portugal.
Oysters with FingerlimesThis recipe is from my cookbook “The OutbackChef” New Holland Publishers This dressing makes quite a bit, store in fridge and use over a simple green salad with a sprinkling of Bush Dukkah
Easy to make
Cheese PresentCream cheese and OutbackChef’s Bush BBQ Lemon Pepper creates the perfect Christmas drinks nibbles partner.
Garlic bulbs with Tasmanian Pepperleaves
Roasted Garlic with PepperleafGarlic done this way is so tasty, I usually leave the garlic cloves a little chunky to add to pasta, risotto, salads or garlic bread, you can always mill finer if needed
Try prawns or yabbies with this delicisou risotto with warragul greens and anise myrtle
Risotto with Warragul Greens and Anise MyrtleOptions…I also add some of my ROASTED GARLIC COOKED WITH PEPPERLEAF just before I add the seafood, a really tasty combo. This is one of my favourite ways to make risotto, I know a lot of the purists might object to putting in tasty cheese, but it’s my take on how I like it! Don’t skip the stock and just use water, the stock is such an important flavour base to this one.
