Have you ever wondered about the diet of the first fleet? Or how on earth you would eat an echidna? Or what Ned Kelly’s favourite meal was? We have!
Although the food of the colonists is often thought of as ‘plain’, it turns out the colonists experimented with a broad range of native, imported and exotic produce. Kangaroo was known as “bush mutton”. They added eucalyptus leave to their billy tea for extra flavour. Beer was the answer to water going bad on the long transport from England, even children drank it. Talk about Australian!
While we’ve got our noses stuck in journals articles about colonial gastronomy and newspapers published in the 1800s, you can book yourself a spot! Limited seats so get in quick! We’re looking forward to sharing the menu with you all and we will also be sharing some our favourite fun colonial facts and authentic recipes!
