Hi, and welcome to “Aussie Taste”. I’m Natasha and the chief cook and bottlewasher around here. I live in West Footscray, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia with my husband and cooking is my pleasure and passion.
Being so close to the Footscray Markets and many ethnic grocery and supply stores for ingredients I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try something different. That’s where it all started and it hasn’t stopped.
It is an exciting adventure everyday in my kitchen, trying my hand at cooking with new ingredients from a wide range of cuisines. Sometimes it is necessary to substitute with local ingredients so you too can enjoy these recipes. There is a glossary here and I include substitutes if I can find good information. And there’s a question and answer section to help along the way.
If you’re just looking for some inspiration we have plenty of categories to choose from:
