A Collection of Recipes and Stories from the
Hancock and Kidman Pastoral Properties
As the seasons roll on, recipes are passed forward and shared among friends, family and all generations so all can come together to share and enjoy. These stories and recipes are shared in this remarkable book. Along with many photos from those that have made the Hancock and Kidman stations and farms their home.
Every country can be defined by the food they eat, and how they prepare and cook this food. The extraordinary range of differing food preferences of the population of each country, state or region has an uncanny knack of capturing the essence of each areas personality, whether stodgy, optimistic, mean, generous, pleased with themselves, bold, passionate, laconic, pride in what they do, risk-takers, disciplined, over-bearing, particular, unimaginative, creative, challenging and the list goes on.
This book richly captures the unique and powerful personality of those wonderful people who make up Australias cattle station region, that vast, rugged and unforgiving yet mystical wilderness that is our cattle station country. These cattle station recipes and stories bring alive the optimistic, resilient, sharing, enterprising, self-confident, risk-taking, creative, laconic and proud free spirits that characterise our cattle station communities.
