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.

The special feature of this cookbook, giving ingredient requirements for 10 people, 30 people, 50 people or 100 people, simplifies the process of cooking for large numbers. The cookbook can be used by health workers who wish to demonstrate to groups, both large and small. It can also be used by anyone who is regularly challenged by trying to create healthy meals for large groups.
