Love Australian food? Then you may fancy We Love the Gong: EAT, a local cookbook by Tourism Wollongong honoring the city’s food scene, its “people, places and plates.”
On Australia’s coast, between Illawarra Escarpment and the Pacific Ocean, Wollongong is south of Sydney in New South Wales. The seaside city is known for its “multicultural mix and sun, surf and sand lifestyle.”
“There are lots of reasons to stop and explore the great dining options available in the Gong, from creative recipes and great local produce to the wonderful personalities behind our best eateries,” says Greg Binskin, spokesperson, Tourism Wollongong.
The cookbook covers 27 restaurants, cafes, markets and community gardens, profiling their establishment’s chef, cook or owner and their signature recipe.
Recipe highlights of We Love the Gong: EAT include:
- Market Fish and Hand-cut Chips from beachside café Diggies;
- Duck and Mushroom Lasagne from Lorenzo’s Diner and
- Tempura Oysters with a Porter Shot from The Illawarra Brewery.
