Kukumbat gudwan daga: really cooking good food (2009)


Women’s centres of Manyallaluk Gulin Gulin and Wugularr, Fred Hollows Foundation


Batchelor Press


Batchelor, NT





Kukumbat gudwan daga: really cooking good food is a cookbook of up to 100 healthy recipes for feeding ten or more people.

The recipes are diverse, including traditional recipes such as kangaroo tail stew and introduced favourites such as spaghetti. Created by women from the women's centres of Manyallaluk, Gulin Gulin and Wugularr in conjunction with a chef and a nutritionist from the Fred Hollows Foundation, the cookbook uses local ingredients and provides step by step photographs. The recipes all give ingredients for cooking meals for 10 people, 30 people, 50 people or 100 people, meaning the user does not need to calculate ingredient amounts as is usually the case with regular cookbooks.

This resource is only available in hard copy, via the Batchelor Press Online Store. The cookbook comes with a DVD that includes some episodes from the TV series Shepherd's Pie with Auguie and Major.
