Product Description

Bringing together tastes from various countries, the launch of the Flavours of Launceston recipe book celebrates the culinary and cultural diversity of Launceston community gardeners.

“The book documents recipes from eleven community gardens in the Launceston area”, said Community Gardens Australia’s (CGA) Tasmania Coordinator, Jo Dean.

“The recipes include contributions by Hazari community gardeners from Afghanistan and others from the Pacific Islands, Africa, the Middle East, the Americas, Australia, Nepal and Europe.

“The story of Fijian earth oven cooking comes from an earth oven meal prepared by Fijians in the garden at Ravenswood Heights Primary School.”

Jo Dean has a long involvement with community-based urban agriculture in the Launceston area. Based in the city’s community and school gardens, her work is mainly with immigrant communities, refugees and primary schools, however from time to time she coordinates a teaching team to offer the Permaculture Design Course in Tasmania’s northern region.

Jo Dean compiled the recipes in the book from gardeners. The book was designed by Fiona Campbell and edited by Russ Grayson.
