In the terrible Queensland floods of January 2011, much was lost, some of it irreplaceable. Many listeners to Madonna King's Mornings show on ABC Radio in Brisbane contacted Madonna and resident foodie Alison Alexander to tell them stories of the recipes, handed down through generations, they had lost, or the comforting dishes they took around to besieged neighbours. When Madonna placed a call out for people to send in their favourite recipes, or help others replace those they had lost, the response was overwhelming. From beef casseroles to fruit scones, lamb curries to apple crumble, A Generous Helping is not only a wonderful collection of 150 recipes and stories, but a celebration of community spirit that also offers food as diverse and interesting as Queenslanders themselves, and demonstrates, once more, their resilience and creativity in the face of disaster.
