Country came to Canberra last Saturday night when Mel and her mum from Dubbo, treated the Canberra Cooking Circle to some real authentic old time country cooking.
My favourite course would have to be the faithful recreation of the CWA catering for the 1995 Peak Hill Debut Ball featuring Sweet Sherry…
…mashed potato and devon rolls!
…cocktail frankfurts and tomato sauce
This was followed by pumpkin soup and damper…
..and some classic Aussie curries featuring sultanas, pineapple and just a pinch of curry powder…
…accompanied by banana and coconut.
Dessert was two styles of bread and butter pudding, rice pudding and golden syrup dumplings with cream and icecream.
Being Cooking Circles, it was not just about enjoying the food and great company….
….but also about sharing the preparation of the desserts.
Recipes were taken from the Common Sense Cookery book, and a collection of family favourites.
For the next event (open to all)…

Sounds fantastic Michele!, and I remember seeing those devon and potato rolls at parties when I was young (though I think I was slightly horrified even then), and I’m still rather partial to bananas in coconut with curry now…though I leave out the sultanas and pineapple 🙂
I’m amazed Beck! It didn’t seem real!
