Her own treasured collection of favourites has great recipes and techniques that she returns to time and time again for ongoing inspiration.
Maggie’s own range of cookbooks would make a wonderful gift for someone who loves to cook. Each of her books offers a wonderful blend of Maggie Beer signature recipes, tips for healthy eating, anecdotes from life at her Barossa farm and orchard, and reflections on memorable meals with family and friends.
Maggie is the first to admit that any recipe is only a guide. For the best cookbooks to give as gifts, Maggie Beer books offer the perfect balance between a recipe book and a sharing of wisdom gained from her years in the kitchen. Share the daily joys of cooking and the pleasures of the table with a heartfelt gift for a passionate home cook.
Maggie Beer books and biography
Maggie was awarded the Centenary Medal for her service to Australian society through cooking and writing in 2001 and, in 2010, became a Member of the Order of Australia (AM). When she is not cooking, appearing as co-host on The Cook and The Chef, The Great Australian Bake Off, or as guest chef on MasterChef, Maggie can be found in her garden or writing books.
Maggie is the author of more than ten wonderfully inspiring cookbooks including: Maggie’s Christmas Cookbook, Maggie’s Harvest Cookbook, Spring Harvest Cookbook, Summer Harvest Cookbook, Autumn Harvest Cookbook, Winter Harvest Cookbook, Maggie Beer Lantern Cookery Classics, Maggie’s Verjuice Cookbook, Maggie’s Table, Maggie’s Kitchen Cookbook, Maggie’s Orchard and Maggie’s Farm, and is co-author of the bestselling Stephanie Alexander & Maggie Beer’s Tuscan Cookbook.
For anyone who is passionate about good food, these recipe compendiums rank among the best cookbooks of all time. Maggie’s hope is for every Australian (young, old and in between!) to have a good food life and enjoy quality, seasonal cooking every day.
Frequently asked questions
Where we can, we’ve done our best to give you both gram weight and cup measurements to make Maggie’s recipes easier to cook according to what makes sense in your kitchen.
Unless specified otherwise, all of Maggie’s recipes are based on fan-forced oven temperatures. If using a conventional (that is non-fan-forced) oven you may need to increase the temperature by 10 or 20ºC (50 or 68ºF). Fan-assisted ovens differ from fan-forced ovens in that use of the fan is optional, making them more flexible.

We dispatch our orders with Australia Post with current metro delivery times at 3-6 business days. During COVID-19, delays are frequent, we please ask for your patience and understanding. We aim to dispatch orders within 2 business days of the time of purchase or the earliest possible convenience.
Deliveries sent through Australia Post will now default to ‘Signature on Delivery with Authority to Leave’ which means the receiver will still sign for a parcel whenever they are home. If the receiver is not home and Australia Post determines there is a safe place for the parcel to be left on the premises, they will leave it there. Australia Post will also take a photo of the parcel as proof that it was delivered safely and give the receiver access to this. If there’s no safe place, Australia Post will leave a notification to the receiver and take the parcel to a nearby Post office for the receiver to pick up and sign for.
Refunds or returns will not be given for late delivery outside our delivery guarantees or predicted delivery times with Australia Post.

In general, the products you buy online will have a shelf life of least 3 months when stored properly.
Sometimes we reduce prices on products that have a shorter best-before date than usual. You’ll see these are marked with a calendar icon and a reminder: these need to be enjoyed sooner rather than later.
A special note for Maggie fans outside of Australia – unfortunately due to varying customs laws we cannot offer Maggie’s products for international delivery. You can of course send a package to an Australian address if you are living outside of Australia and we will simply email the receipt to you once you have ordered.
We authorize a payment on your credit card when you place your order, and then confirm payment when your order is packed ready to send to you. This may be the same day you place your order, or a few days afterwards, depending on our packing roster.
