Unleash Your Inner Foodie this Australia Day

Beach cricket, backyard BBQs and picnics in the park are just some of the ways Aussies celebrate their national day – but at the heart of every celebration is food, and this year, Harris Farm Markets is encouraging us to draw inspiration from one of Australia’s best-loved chefs.

Customers who spend $100 or more the weekend preceding Australia Day (22nd and 23rd January) will receive a complimentary cook book, Maggie’s Table (RRP $49.95), by well-known celebrity cook, food author, and food manufacturer, Maggie Beer.

Foodies looking for inspiration will find plenty recipe ideas and fresh quality Australian ingredients at Harris Farm Markets, including specially tailored recipes from Maggie Beer –perfect for Australia Day celebrations.

Speaking about the promotion, Maggie Beer said, “I cook from the heart and wholeheartedly encourage improvisation in the kitchen, but always with reliance on superior produce – something Harris Farm truly understands.

It was the luckiest accident of my life that I settled in the Barossa Valley and ‘Maggie’s Table’ is a culinary diary of that good fortune. I hope that, together with some wonderfully fresh produce from Harris Farm, it will inspire many delicious meals for you and your family.”

In addition, there will be plenty of delicious food sampling for locals to enjoy including the best of this season's fruit and veg, cheeses, chips, dips, jams, juices, and of course the famous Harris Farm Markets yoghurt, so there will be something for the whole family to try.

Here are a few simple and delicious recipes from Maggie Beer to try out this Australia Day:

  • Country Chicken and Mushroom Pies

  • Salmon Poached in Olive Oil with Tomato & Avocado Salsa

  • Apple Tea Cake with Caramelised Verjuice Syrup

  • Cold Lemon Souffle
