The dainty size, succulent flesh and delicious flavour of yolla make it a versatile
meat which can be prepared in many different traditional and contemporary ways.
Originally yolla were cooked on the hot coals of a fire - a savoury barbecue! When
Europeans arrived in Tasmania, people from many countries joined Aboriginal
communities, contributing their own culinary styles. As you enjoy these yolla dishes,
you are sharing an experience both timeless and cosmopolitan.
