10 Best Australia Day Recipes
19 January 2020
Australia is a wonderful country and it’s worth celebrating our food and culture every day of the year.
January 26, “Australia Day”, is a day for celebration, a day for reflection and a day for mourning.
It marks the birth of modern Australia with the arrival of Europeans. It also marks the beginning of a dark time for the First Peoples of Australia.
I’m sharing these Australia Day recipes because food brings people together. It helps break down barriers. On Australia Day and always, that can only be a good thing.
1. Meat Pie
3. Honey Joys
These golden, crunchy treats have been packed into lunch boxes and piled on kids birthday party platters for years.
We love it at Christmas. We love it for New Year. We love it on birthdays. And we especially love it on Australia Day.
5. Wagon Wheels
“Eat ze wagon wheel”. Remember the ad? Another Aussie treat made famous by Arnott’s and made even better in our home kitchens.
7. Iced Vovos
Iced VoVos have been an Australian icon since 1906, and even one of our Prime Minister’s revealed a weakness for them.
These crunchy little cookies are packed with Aussie macadamias and a few other native surprises.
9. Smashed Avo
This must surely be our national breakfast dish. Don’t go to a fancy cafe. Make it at home and save up for a house instead.
Australia’s favourite chocolate bar in slice form. It’s as good as it looks.
