Publishers Text

In the terrible Queensland floods of January 2011 much was lost, some of it irreplaceable. Many listeners contacted Alison Alexander, resident foodie and cook at Madonna King's Morning Show on ABC Radio to tell her they had lost their treasured recipe collections that were handed through the generations. Madonna and Alison decided to do a call out to listeners and ask them to send in recipes and they were amazed by the response as everything from mutton stew to chocolate pudding came in. And with them, stories of what those recipes meant to families. This collection of 150 recipes attempts to regain what was lost in the floods, offering a treasure chest of dishes as diverse and interesting as Queenslanders themselves, and demonstrates once more their resilience and creativity in the face of disaster.
