Learn about native produce adapted by early colonists in a tour and tasting session with ‘colonial gastronomer’ Jacqui Newling. Experience the tastes and cooking techniques embraced by our early colonists such as the classic ‘kangaroo steamer’, before exploring the historic kitchen in Vaucluse House, also where the event is taking place.
Participate in a hands on cooking workshop with native cuisine pioneers Raymond and Jennice Kersh and taste a range of modern bush food flavours. Afterwards there will be a bush barbecue in the paddock, with samples of native beer from Young Henry’s and a local gin. This Colonial Gastronomy Wild Foods event has limited places available and bookings are essential.
