Australia: Recipes and Cuisine

In the past, Australia's cuisine largely imitated that of the imperial homeland, Britain. In recent decades, however, Aussies have increasingly opened their eyes and mouths to the gastronomic wealth of recent immigrants and that of their Asian neighbors. Traditional Australian foods like grilled lamb, meat pies, damper bread, ANZAC biscuits and pavlova are joined by dishes that show Greek, Middle Eastern, East Asian and aboriginal influence. In addition, Australian wines are a bonanza for the oenophile.
