Four Galletly sisters – Emma, Sarah, Olivia and Alice – are embarking on the the most important archaeological mission of all time.
What did Kiwis and Aussies eat before sushi existed? Before sliders or tapas or salted caramel macaroons? How did anyone cook Asian-fusion without coriander or galangal?
Nobody knows. Whatever it was we were eating last century, we seem to have collectively repressed the memory and thrown away the key.
Armed with cupboards full of glacé cherries, novelty-shaped moulds and jumbo jars of mayonnaise, we will be testing the best, the worst, and the most outlandish recipes ever published Down Under. In doing this we hope to gain valuable insight into the two countries’ culinary evolution, and get really good at making radish rosettes.
Aucklanders Olivia and Alice will be cooking the Kiwi recipes, Sydneysiders Sarah and Emma will take on Oz.
