Coooeeee Anzac cooking

Call the family and friends with a great big Coooeee. Anzac cooking time.

Friday the 25th April is Anzac Day which celebrates not only the Anzac’s (the Australian and New Zealand actions during the campaign) at Gallipoli campaign.

It’s a day of remembrance and thanks for those that have given their lives or fought to keep Australia a free nation. Read more…

Cooking brings friends and family together and no simper way than making Anzac cookies. Yes, we can buy them but making your own is something special.

Also, give making damper a go (recipe below). It’s an iconic campfire soda bread worth having a go at home if you have not gone camping.

Harvest Hub member, Grace, let us know that the favourite in their household is Anzac Toast – simply Turkish bread toasted with butter and vegemite.
