Gourmet touring around Australia

Almost anyone who has had the chance to travel around Australia would agree that this is a country of vast distances and even greater talent and ingenuity. And those who like to travel with a knife and fork and a wine glass know that wining and dining around this country is one of the most exciting and satisfying things to do.

This book is Explore Australia's second guide in which travellers are invited to visit Australia's wineries and restaurants, food festivals and producers, and anything else related to food and wine. This edition not only brings the reader up-to-date with new places and tastes, but presents the selection in a neat flexibound volume that will fit perfectly in the inside door pocket of most cars.

Because that is what the book's publishers and the writers of each of the six state's chapters would like everyone to do. When planning a road-trip to rural Australia, take the book, read its text before you go - to get your tastebuds going - then take it with you. That way, using the regional maps and notes, you can find your way to just the right place to suit you and your fellow-travellers: whether it's a brewery in a former pub, a chocolatier using a native wattleseed filling, a cheese-maker that rises at dawn to milk goats, or a chef whose passion is using produce he has grown in his garden or is as local as the nextdoor farm.

In fact, whether you are a weekend tourist, or on the long haul around the country, this book will keep you well-fed and fascinated.

Gourmet Touring around Australia, edited by Tom Neal Tacker, Hardie Grant Publishing, Feb. 2014, Flexibound, rrp A$36.95,
