I was honoured and delighted to be invited to present a paper on the 12th of March 2011 at theÂ Food Traditions and Culinary Cultures Symposium, followed by a ‘Conversation Dinner’ :-). The event has been convened by the Australasian Food Studies Network as part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Network, and is being hosted by the William Angliss Institute.
There’s a great line up of speakers on a variety of topics around food traditions and culinary cultures, followed up with a dinner to carry on the conversation. I’ll be talking aboutÂ the increased opportunities a cosmopolitan society offers in the development of a more socially and environmentally sustainable world.
It promises to be a great day, and I really hope to see some of you there!
