The Makers: A Story of Food, Family and Foreigners


The Makers: A Story of Food, Family and Foreigners By: Rita Erlich 

Everyone knows that modern Australia is a country of immigrants, and that they brought with them treasured family recipes for making and preserving cheese, passata, salami, beer and more. These days most people can afford to buy the food and drink their relatives used to make, but that would mean losing the tradition of preserving produce as a family. Such gatherings are as much part of the social calendar as the horticultural one.

The Makers gathers together stories, recipes and tips from the Home Make It's founders, the Baggio family, their friends and extended community of passionate 'homemade' producers in an inviting, accessible format that encourages everyone to give it a go.
