A Plant Based Farmhouse

$49.99

A dreamy book of delicious, nutritious and inventive plant-based savoury and sweet recipes set at Cherie's idyllic Barossa Valley farmhouse, celebrating her joyful approach to food, community and life.

'I'm thrilled by this beautiful book. Cherie's recipes are bursting with flavour and creativity. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.' Maggie Beer


Wherever she's lived around the world, Cherie Hausler's instinct has been to host 'country gatherings' - bringing people together to share good food and good times. That passion grew when she returned home to the Barossa Valley to settle in an unrenovated 150-year-old stone farmhouse on Koonunga Hill.

It's there that she tends a rambling edible garden, forages for wild olives, turns apples into cider vinegar, makes kombucha, bakes, blends (and drinks!) tea, tends her horses, ducks, dogs, and other animal friends, and nurtures community connection through vegan food. At a local horticultural meeting, Cherie was reminded of how easy it can be to find familiar food territory with others: 'Oh, we all eat plants dear - nothing new in that,' one member quipped. 


A Plant-Based Farmhouse celebrates exactly that timelessness, with more than 80 wholefood, dairy- and sometimes gluten-free recipes based on traditional plant-based country foods and cooking methods, along with veg-centric riffs on familiar homestead favourites. Whether it's inspiration for hearty salads, roasts and brunches, magnificent cakes and tarts, or go-to staples, there's so much deliciousness within these pages. Plant-based or otherwise, no one need miss out.
