In July 2018, the History Council of NSW and Central West Libraries presented a special seminar, ‘Touring Tastes: exploring histories of Australian food and culture’, as part of the Orange Readers and Writers Festival 2018, Armchair Explorations: Read, Savour and Explore.
Food and travel are at the centre of Australian life, as means of survival and opportunities for pleasure. But how do these practices shape local and national cultures? How have Australians kept themselves nourished through times of war and struggle? What can food tell us about personal and social values? And how do historians unravel the meaning behind our favourite pastimes?
