Healthy and casual eating is very much a way of Australian life. Novel crops that offer new tastes and significant health benefits are always worthy of consideration. Watercress is a long established traditional salad crop in other parts of the world but is used in very limited quantities in Australia. Those people “in the know” that use it have generally encountered it from their overseas experiences. This book brings together available information about watercress production, its potential health benefits and the opportunities for it to take greater prominence in the Australian diet either as a flavoursome salad or in new cooked recipes.
