G'day and kaya to our very first episode based on Australian soil. On the 25th of April, Australians and New Zealanders commemorate ANZAC Day. It is a very solemn day and some would argue that it is actually our most important national day.
It is also a tradition to make ANZAC biscuits around this time. We talk to Maria Marta, an Argentine from Tucuman who has created a new life for herself in Australia - making biscuits, alfajores to be exact. She has shown what we call the ANZAC spirit to be able to learn English and thrive with her business and life in Australia.
We talk to Maria Marta about her experiences, Australian biscuits, and of course Argentine treats as well. She will explain to you how to make ANZAC biscuits - and maybe even with a little twist.
We hope this episode fills you with some of the determination and persistence that is needed when moving to another country and starting a new life. And just maybe, you might be enjoying it with an ANZAC biscuit at the same time.
