Kukumbat gudwan daga
A healthy cookbook with recipes that feed 10 or more people.
Brought to you by the women’s centres of Manyallaluk, Gulin Gulin and Wugularr in conjunction with The Fred Hollows Foundation.
The cookbook provides step by step photographs and tools to assist with ordering food to create meals for up to 100 people.
Kukumbat gudwan daga - Really cooking good food was launched recently in the Northern Territory. The launch day featured a cook off between neighboring Jawoyn communities using recipes from the cookbook and relying only on wood fuelled woks.
The cookbook was put together with the assistance of The Fred Hollows Foundation and includes recipes for a diverse range of dishes, from spaghetti to kangaroo tail stew.
Developing the recipes for the book was a collaborative effort between women from remote Indigenous communities of the Jawoyn region, a chef, and Alison Lorraine, a nutritionist from The Fred Hollows Foundation.
"The women's centres have created a nutritious cookbook that uses local ingredients and caters for up to 100 healthy meals! This is a fantastic way to improve the nutrition for people receiving meals on wheels and school lunch programs," said Alison.
