Food Miles is the first publication of its kind worldwide. Join us as we take you on a wondrous journey from paddock to plate. You’ll see firsthand how food is produced and walk with us through the beautiful farms of Australia. When produce becomes food we’ll indulge together with fabulous recipes and gorgeous food photos. Most of all there will be people stories told in words, images and moving pictures: the producers, processors, retailers, chefs, cooks and consumers. If you are looking for your people, you’ll find them here at Food Miles.
