Radio National’s Bush Telegraph has a “Food on Friday” segment which I adore. In fact I love the whole show and even the bits before it where host Michael Mackenzie flirts archly with Ramona Koval as she’s finishing up The Book Show.
Today’s “Food on Friday”was on the subject of thrifty eating, and featured Stephanie Alexander who discussed her Kitchen Garden Foundation project, what she fed her kids and the many benefits of eating from large shared dishes at the table. The other interviewee was Pam Batten, President of the Country Women’s Association in WA. Her organisation’s cookbook, The CWA Cookery Book and Household Hints, has been in print since 1936.
The image is from the Old Parliament House site via Philanthroparty – I struggled to find any more information about it. And as I’m mentioning OPH, do yourself a favour and check out Canberra House, an absolutely brilliant site on modernist architecture here in Canberra written by Martin Miles who looks after the OPH site.
