All are invited to a luscious visual and audio treat - a panel on our histories of food and wine. We begin the evening with Nancy Cushing, who will explore colonial cultures in her “Feed the Man Meat: The importance of convict rations.” Next will be Julie McIntyre, who will consider what we drink in “From London Particular to Kaludah: the wines of colonial New South Wales.” Finally, Leonard Janiszewski and Effie Alexakis will present a gorgeous illustrated talk on "Sodas, Sundaes, Milkshakes and Mixed Grills: Australia's Greek Cafes," including some stunning material on the Hunter region.
