  1. Hi Ann and Anne, Im writing a book celebrating community cookbooks in Australia and Im wondering if you would be willing to have a chat with a view to sharing your favourite pineapple recipe from a community cookbook published in the 1960s/70s. You can email me direct on lizharfull@internode.on.net
