Barossa Food


by Angela Heuzenroeder, Wakefield Press, revised 2002 edition. The name Barossa was unknown to me; turns out, it's am Australian wine-producing valley northeast of Adelaide. To my knowledge, this could be the first modern cookbook to reach the U.S. that deals with the food of that region.

Because German immigrants settled that area, the food is highly influenced by German cookery. In fact, quite a number of the recipes still bear German names -- Griefen tarts, Honigkuchen, Stinkerkase, and the like. From the back cover: "Heuzenroeder follows the seasons to describe foods eaten in the Barossa over 160 years of love and marriage, politics, war, migration and community life. She draws on the memories, recipe notebooks and endeavors of people in the valley, as well as her own experiences, to provide over 100 authentic recipes for the modern kitchen."

Handsome large trade paperback, color photo covers, black and white landscape and foodstuffs photos throughout. Condition: VG+.

NOTE: This is still in print in Australia. Overseas shipping will be expensive.
