Creative Cookbooks: Capturing Family & Food Memories - Mt Gambier


with Liz Harfull

FREE for members

as part of our Regional Writers Project

Have you always wanted to create your own family recipe book? Or capture treasured recipes handed down through generations alongside short stories about the family members who shared them? Or perhaps you have found yourself in charge of compiling a cookbook to raise money for your favourite community group?

Writing recipes that make it easy to successfully reproduce your grandmother’s fruit cake, your neighbour's trifle, or that delicious dish you make every week for your children, is not quite as simple as you might suspect!

Join award-winning cookbook writer and historian Liz Harfull as she reveals the practical steps needed to preserve the wisdom and knowledge of the cooks that inspire you, and help you create recipes and stories that are easy to follow - and a joy to eat!

Originally from Mount Gambier, Liz Harfull is a national best-selling author who has written three books celebrating the stories, recipes and secret tips of amateur cooks across Australia. Her first book, The Blue Ribbon Cookbook, explored the world of agricultural shows and amateur show cooking competitions in South Australia. Now recognised as a classic, it even took the author to Paris where it won a Gourmand World Cookbook Award. Liz is also well known for her acclaimed book Almost an Island: the story of Robe, the national best-selling Women of the Land, about women running their own farms, and her most recent book, City Girl Country Girl. A keen amateur cook and historian, Liz now she lives in the Adelaide Hills, occasionally finding time to bake scones and make jam, while juggling a busy writing career.


Workshop participants, SA Writers Centre members, and anyone interested in writing are also invited to attend a free SA Writers Networking Event on Saturday 4 November, 1-2pm. Get away from the desk, share some light refreshments with other writers (including Liz!), or come along with questions. Writers of any age and stage welcome. RSVP here.
