The Blue Ribbon Cookbook

blue_ribbonIf you have ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of those rows of delectable cakes and biscuits at the Royal Show, this book will demystify it all.

Author Liz Harfull was raised near Mount Gambier in South Australia. As a keen cook she has entered many shows and been successful. As a journalist and writer who has also won numerous awards she is well placed to put together this book which is a delightful celebration of the tradition of ’show cooking in South Australia’ and the traditions behind it.

What’s more the book contains many recipes so that you too can make award-winning yeast buns and lemonade scones, muffins, marmalades, chutneys and much more.
