Why do we use a French Recipe for an Australian Flower?
Nicolas Baudin, was the first European to explore Tasmania (in 1771) and returned again under instruction from Napoleon to tour Aus`tralia in 1800-03.
Napoleon’s wife, Josephine, so loved Australian wattles, she pioneered the planting of specimens brought back by Baudin to France (where they are known as Mimosa).
Today, the mimosa tree has transformed the landscape in the south of France, and travellers from across the world visit the French Riviera to see the “Route du Mimosa” in bloom in late winter and enjoy Mimosa flower beverages.
