a letter from the editor

Everyone talks about paddock to plate these days, but this magazine started talking about it nearly three decades ago. It’s our 30th birthday early next year and we are delighted that everyone has caught on to the fact that we need to celebrate the people who produce the food we serve to our families; the vegetables we put on the plate at dinnertime for our kids. I’ve just returned from Orange FOOD Week and I had a great time seeing all the regulars — nearly 180 people attended our annual Producers’ Lunch at the Nashdale CWA Hall. I also enjoyed a quick dinner at Lolli Redini in Orange. If you ever get the chance to go to Sim Hawke’s restaurant, you have to try the sweet pea, broad bean and fennel…

BARBARA SWEENEY The food writer, educator and founder of the Food & Words festival has contributed to Country Style for more than a decade. For the Food & Wine Issue, our intrepid food writer visited a Queensland camel dairy (right), took a cooking class with Belinda Jeffery in the Byron Bay hinterland and grilled some of our top chefs for tips on where to eat in regional Australia. “I love writing Country Style stories,” she says. “Well, not the writing of it as much as the anticipation of the story and the getting of it — meeting the people and spending time in their lives.” Working with Joanna Savill, Barbara produced the Where Chefs Eat feature on page 102 and says she particularly enjoyed Andrew McConnell’s story about drinking wine and eating…

Interior enthusiasts showed their love for the kitchen at Todd and Tammy Baird’s home in Lindisfarne.

WE DECIDED TO send the kids into a bigger school this year. We live just past the end of the bus run into town — one of the longest bus runs in NSW, says our bus driver Steve — and for the first half of the week, the children hop on Steve’s enormous bus, happily. It leaves at 7:18am on the dot, whether you are there or not. So far we haven’t missed it, although there have been some pretty intense mornings involving straight Nutella for breakfast and desperate screams of “where are the school shoes?” that go unanswered. The shoes are, of course, in places no reasonable person could be expected to know, except for maybe the person who left them there, but she is five and has other…

home away from home

Abbey Bailey comes from Cootamundra in New South Wales, halfway between Melbourne and Sydney. Her family’s homestead is located 15 kilometres out of town and it’s another two kilometres from the farm gate to the front door. Set in a valley and surrounded by rolling green hills, Abbey’s life at home is vastly different from her life as a boarder at Methodist Ladies’ College (MLC) in inner-east Melbourne — but it was her decision to move away for school after Year 9 and one she welcomed wholeheartedly. “I was ready to leave,” says Abbey, who is now in Year 11. “It’s a huge thing in my town to go off to boarding school. Our year level went from 40 students to just 19; it’s a small town and I see boarding as…

THINK ABOUT CAMELS in the Australian landscape and the most likely picture that will spring to mind is a camel in the outback. Middle Eastern and Indian traders brought camels, one of the oldest domesticated animals on the planet, to Australia in the 1800s and they formed part of the exploration party led by Burke and Wills in 1860. Camels were also used in major construction projects and to transport goods in remote areas, though eventually they were replaced by motor vehicles in the 1920s. If you’ve visited the Northern Territory or central Queensland you might have seen camels in the wild; Australia has the only population of feral dromedary camels in the world. Or perhaps your knowledge of Australian camels has come from Robyn Davidson’s 1980 book Tracks, about her…
