Awight me ole cobber? Ok, so I can’t speak with an Aussie accent but I can deliver you some recipes to show your solidarity with our cousins down under. (Literally in my case as I have family there!) There’s no real recognized Australian cuisine. Australian food is as multi-cultural as its population but there are some foods that have become nationally accepted as being true to the heart of Australian cuisine. On Jan 26th show your respect for Australia Day by trying one of these recipes for Australian food.
