Maggie Beer is Senior Australian of the Year

When you think of great Australian wine making districts, the Barossa instantly springs to mind. And when you think of Barossa legends, Maggie Beer is one of the greatest.

Maggie was recently crowned Senior Australian of the Year. She was the star of ABC television's popular The Cook and the Chef shows. Maggie began her interest in food in 1973 when she moved to the Barossa to breed pheasants and grow grapes with husband Colin. With seven books and numerous awards to her name, Maggie is famous for her innovative recipes and produce such as preserved lemons, quince pastes, oils, nuts, spices and even ice cream.
