NEW BOTANY BOOK

Bush tukka guide: identify Australian plants and animals, and learn how to cook.

Bush tukka

Identify Australian plants and animals, and learn how to cook.

In this gorgeous and compact book, Samantha Martin - the 'Bush Tukka Woman' - shares her knowledge and love of bush tukka as taught to her by her mother and other Aboriginal elders. Her Bush Tukka Guide offers rich and wonderful insights into how Aboriginal people survived for centuries unearthing the bounty of this sometimes lush and often desolate land.

The book is divided into three chapters covering plants, animals and some recipes to get you started using bush tukka at home. Learn how to find billygoat plums and mountain bush pepper in the wild; discover the reasons Aboriginal people ate magpie geese and honey ants; and test out the delicious flavours of bush tukka recipes like bunya nut pesto, lemon myrtle slow-cooked kangaroo or caramelised cluster figs with ice-cream.
