A High Country Life
A High Country memoir of life through the seasons on a large sheep station, with delicious recipes.
Pip Cameron lives on a huge high-country station Otematata in Canterbury, near Lake Benmore. Her husband is one of the fifth generation to own and run the station. One of Pip’s roles on the station is feeding the teams of workers, and she shares her recipes on her popular Instagram page ‘What’s for Smoko’. The High Country Cook tells her story of living on a sheep station and it’s organised seasonally, describing mustering in autumn, lambing in spring, the freezing days of winter and the scorching heat of the summers.
Pip includes about 25 of her recipes, classic hearty fare. Beautifully photographed, this brings the yarns of station work to life.
