Maggies Harvest

By Maggie Beer

Ah - Maggie Beer!  Along with Margaret Fulton, Maggie is truly an Australian national treasure.  Her enthusiasm and passion for food, food production and family is an inspiration.  The quotation on the back-cover tells the story :  "My philosophy is simple – to cook from the heart, and to live in harmony with the seasons.  Overflowing with memories, musing and recipes, this book is a personal collection of my most treasured food experiences." 

Maggie Beers transcends fashion and fickle foodie obsessions and cuts back recipes to their heart – embracing seasonal produce with all its limitations and making the very utmost of every crop.  She creates food which lives on through generations as family favourites and exquisite celebrations of pure ingredients, each one written with care and a deep sense of joy. 

Anyone who loves honesty in cooking and values personal and culinary history should invest in this volume.
