Don't let the weather rain on your Australia Day parade on January 26. Rug up and strike up the barbie - or at least prepare a pav - and toast all things Antipodean.
Crank the barbie back into action with Aussie chef Ben O'Donoghue's lip-smacking Spiced smoky barbecued chicken.
If you think salads are just for summer, think again. Australian food writer Jill Dupleix's Aussie Warm roast asparagus salad is authentic, yet suitable for colder climates too.
These Chocolate coconut squares are known as lamingtons in Australia, and are a popular squishy, sweet treat.
Food doesn't get more Aussie than a big, fluffy pavlova. Try this Apricot & pistachio pavlova. If you can't find fresh apricots, use the tinned type instead.
