This is Philippa Cameron's story of High Country life through the seasons, on a large sheep station, with delicious recipes.

Life on Otematata Station, a 40,000 hectare high country station in Otago, would be a tough ask for anyone. But to Philippa Cameron and her husband, Joe, who is the fifth generation to work the farm, this is a rich and rewarding life, helping to care for this vast tract of land with 30,000 merino sheep and 500 head of cattle.

The environment is sparse and completely at the mercy of the elements, bringing with it many challenges and seasonal demands. Philippa tells her story in her role as the station cook. It is a story of mustering in autumn, lambing in spring, the freezing days of winter and the scorching heat of summer.

Along with looking after her two small girls, her garden and various animals, Philippa provides the food for a team of workers. This book features Philippa's most trusted recipes, tested on many approving musterers.
