Country Gardens, Country Hospitality A Visit to Australia's Best
Publication Date: 1 November 2013
A celebration of Australia, the diversity of its landscape and the generosity and spirit of its people.
Much loved gardening writer and photographer Holly Kerr Forsyth travelled the country, revealing the landscapes that she loves ;the soaring mountains, the stunning coastline, the wide plains;and visiting gardens of note: in subtropical and temperate, alpine and arid regions, from newly established gardens to those that have evolved over generations.
At each stop, over a meal hosted by the owner, the stories behind the gardens are told, their distinctive histories and features revealed. Meals were shared, created from recipes handed down from mothers or grandmothers, or made with local produce: this is country cooking at its best.
Beautifully designed and featuring 27 inspirational properties, over 60 delicious recipes, and stunning photography, Country Gardens, Country Hospitality takes readers on a journey full of the warmth and conviviality that characterises our homeland.
