The Blue Ribbon Cookbook is a goldmine for anyone who loves to cook, and enjoy the rewards with friends and family. Full of fabulous historical photos, show memorabilia and contemporary colour cooking shots.

'There are two definitions of cooking: afternoon tea or shearing shed, and show cooking is afternoon tea.' - country show cook.

Liz Harfull grew up in the small farming community of Mil Lel, near Mount Gambier, where her family settled in the 1860s. She trained as a journalist at the local newspaper, later working at the Adelaide Advertiser and the Stock Journal. She has also worked as a public relations consultant.

Liz lives in the Adelaide Hills where she is busy as an author, freelance journalist, photographer and consultant. A keen amateur cook who thinks whipping up afternoon tea for friends is a great way to relax at the weekend, Liz has maintained her love of country shows since she was a child and lived just a few small paddocks away from the local showground.

Australian Winner and Winner for the Best in the World in the Best Easy Recipes category in the 2008 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.

Shortlisted for the 2010 Le Cordon Bleu World Food Media Awards.
