What a fantastic turn out it was, on one of Canberra’s overcast days in spring, it did not disappoint! It included a huge spread of platters of cheeses, salami including many home made cakes and a stunning performance by ’klapa samoana.’
The Croatian cultural association from Canberra and Geelong, brought a warmth and look into the food culture and vast food history. It has made a special homage to all Croatian mothers, grandmothers (baka’s) who have brought the love of cooking into the family home.
With special guests renowned artist Charles Billich and his loveky wife Christina, it was a great honour to have them present, as Billich’s painting is on the front cover of ’My Mother's Kitchen’.
Most of the guests all received a signed autograph by the artist, including myself. This book is one that is rich in Croatian culture, with many recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. This book brings special memories for myself, with many recipes I have been brought up on that have been shown to me from my mum and both my grandmothers.
If your looking for that great gift for Christmas or for someone's birthday, someone who enjoys food and culture, this book is it!
