Good husbandry was required to yield crops. In the first hundred years there were many books on various topics about Australia, although, on cooking, very few in the format that we expect today. The English and Australian Cookery Book, Cooking for the many as well as the Upper Ten Thousand, by Edward Abbott in 1864 is the first recognised Australian cookbook. Abbott had a great interest in indigenous foods, and mentioned roast wombat, porcupine, and emu. He suggested for a colonial banquet such dishes as asparagus, turtle soup, Tasmanian trumpeter fish with butter sauce, and roast kangaroo.

The recipes became Part 2 of Phillip Muskett’s The Art of Living in Australia, published in 1893. Wicken’s section was titled Australian Cookery Recipes and Accessory Information. In 1898 Mrs Maclurcan’s Cook Book first appeared, and the eponymous author was hailed as one of the best cooks in the country. It was one of the first books to break away from food tradition. She used British recipes but a subtle change was taking place. French cuisine was included in the book. She introduced crab and prawn recipes, and she used tropical fruits such as mangos, pineapple and pawpaw.

As the years went on our taste for food was influenced by waves of immigrants from outside the UK. As late as 1861, 60 per cent of Australia’s population subsisted on prison rations. This diet was not the healthiest by today’s standards. Australia’s food for the first hundred years consisted of flour, meat, sugar, tea, and salt, and rice and dried peas when those foods were cheaply available.
