Whether you're in the mood for a perfectly cooked, fresh-off-the-grass steak that won't fit on the plate, Asian-fusion modern cuisine stacked in elegant nouveau style, a racy Riesling with mud crab (caught yourself), or a crocodile sausage with wattle seed sauce Australia is the place!
Food, wine and all the in-betweens are a serious passion for Aussies who have learnt the techniques, then bent the traditional rules to create impressive wines, spirits, beers and a cuisine all of their own, and international successes include a booming wine industry, boutique beers, meats, fish and cheeses.

All the ingredients for the delicious prawn and squid ink pasta dish as seen in this video can be found at the market, but even if you can't get over there yourself there's a thing or two you can learn in our quick recipe guide below:
