This book is a celebration of the life Maggie shares with Colin, their family and their friends in the Barossa. It is centred around Maggie’s home, the region and its seasons, local farmers and their produce, traditional bakers and butchers who enjoy new challenges, and it is about community. The essence of that life is sharing the table. Here are over 150 recipes for you to share with those you love.
