“There is an old bushmen’s joke about how to cook a cockatoo.  Catch your cockatoo, boil it with two stones and when the stones are soft, your bird I ready.  Jack and Reg Absalom, two seasoned bush cooks, explore with some wit the possibilities to create intriguing and often appetising dishes with the unusual ingredients found in the outback – goat, kangaroo, quandongs (wild peaches) are a few of the resources transformed into dishes eaten with great gusto in the bush.  This book offers many delightful and amusing cooking ideas for the increasing numbers of intrepid campers wishing to do things the true bush way.”
