Our upcoming post series is brought to us by designer, illustrator and author Rilla Alexander. Rilla, her husband Steve and their pup Mr. Tom (who is named after a German candy bar!) hail from Australia, have most recently lived in Berlin and now call Portland home. Aside from her amazing design and illustration portfolio, Rilla has published several books, some featuring her adventurous and sassy alter ego Sozi, who stars in her upcoming book The Best Book in the World!.
Rilla has shared a list of her favorite Australian foods, in her words:
"If you were Australian you’d recognise this as the absolute basics of Australian foods. There is nothing unexpected, adventurous or gourmet about them - but these are the things that I seek out when I go home, alongside baked foods like Lamingtons , Anzac Biscuits , Damper and Meat Pies - all topped off with a Golden Gaytime. Yes, that is the name of an ice-cream (that sadly, we can’t order here but if you ever go to Australia I’d highly recommend).”
