The annual food writer’s festival is the highlight of our year and the main event that we put on, sure. But every now and then we put together special foodish, bookish, talkish events that we’d love you to hear about. If it’s something super special (well, aren’t they all?), we’ll send a newsletter. We’ll also post on Instagram and Facebook. So, if you want to make sure to keep up with what we’re up to, make sure to sign up.

In this talk Adam chats about his ancestry and how it has influenced his love of food, as well as which recipes have been passed down through his family. Hosted by food writer Barbara Sweeney.
Part of the My Food History talk series, where we invite some of Australia’s best loved chefs to explore the history of their families’ cookbooks. They’ll share some of the recipes that have been passed down through generations, and discuss how their ancestry inspires what and how they cook today. This series promises to be a truly personal look at the history of Australian cuisine.
Arrive from 6pm to view the exhibition, Eat Your History – a shared table
Host: Barbara Sweeney
Barbara Sweeney writes about food for the Sydney Morning Herald and is regional editor of the Sydney Morning Herald’s good food guide. She is also a columnist and feature writer for Country Style magazine, where she writes about encounters with curious piglets, beekeepers and pineapple growers.
In a lifetime of working in hospitality, Barbara has owned a small country cafe, worked in a 100-year-old Italian palazzo hotel, and presented food segments on radio and television. She has reveled in all the experiences that have come her way: sipping on vintage wines, meeting top chefs, stamping through fields with farmers and, most of all, sitting down to dinner.
