Maggie Beer is the Julia Child of the Barossa Valley in Australia 1 Mar. 2015
By Julie W. Snyder - Published on
Format: Hardcover
My husband and I have been to the Barossa Valley three times - making sure we ended up there on each of our trips to Australia. It is a special place founded by Germans from Silesia in the mid 1800's. The Valley is known for its wonderful wines, fresh produce, cheeses and baked goods. Restaurants in the Barossa serve fantastic food and one of these restaurants is owned and run by Maggie Beer. She is the Julia Child of Australia! On TV regularly she has also written four cookbooks. Her place is small located on their original pheasant farm, is quite unassuming and a real treat. I was so taken by the lunches and tastings we had there, that I purchased two of her cookbooks. They are impressive for the photographs and the recipes are a plus.

The book is organized by the seasons and Maggie goes all out to illustrate how good the bounty of the Barossa Valley can be. Some of her recipes just come right off the page.
*Whole Whiting baked with Wild Fennel, Oregano and Lemon
*Rabbit and Prune Terrine with Mustard Fruits
*Upside down Grape Cake
*Salad Greens with Ruby Grapefruit, Walnuts & Walnut oil Dressing
*Pleasant with Apple, Calvados and Cream
*Olive Oil Brioche
*Rhubarb and Blood-orange Crumble
*Fig and Walnut Tart
The list goes on and on. I substitute Chicken for her Pheasant recipes and keep cooking. The only downside is that Maggie uses metric, but once you get onto the equivalents its easy.

Although the recipes rule, the photographs (and they are on almost every page) show the true nature of the down to earth & hard working life in the Barossa Valley. Highly recommend!
A charming and chatty book from a delightful author 31 Oct. 2013
By J. M. Fitzpatrick - Published on
Format: Paperback
Maggie Beer is very well known in Australia, as a chef, television personality, food author and producer of gourmet foods.

This book is written in a chatty style, reflecting her personality.

It's a combination of recipes focusing on local South Australian produce, and her recollections of happenings in her home region - the Barossa Valley - and in her life generally.

I am sure that anyone who has met Ms Beer would agree that this book is written as if she was talking with you, and sharing her recipes.

For anyone who is a follower of Ms Beer, or who has visited the Barossa Valley, I am sure this would be an entertaining book. Besides the text, it has several attractive photographs.
