“This wonderful recipe came from the Australian Womens Weekly Cookbook series, " The Barbeque Cookbook". I started buying copies of these wonderful magazines many years ago, and have hung on to them, they have even travelled with me from South Africa to Australia, where I now live. This recipe is easy, looks wonderful and has won me many compliments. Hope you enjoy it too!”
