Food for Thought

Sat 10 Sep, 1.30pm

Our national palate has rapidly evolved as native ingredients and dishes from across the globe go mainstream. But what has it been like for First Nations people and people of colour seeing food that was ignored and even ridiculed when they were younger find sudden cultural cache and sometimes clumsy appropriation? First Nations chef Nornie Bero (Mabu Mabu), Cantonese food writer Jess Ho (Raised by Wolves) and writer and food activist from Mollo, South Central Timor, Dicky Senda, discuss their experiences in the fast-changing world of food, with Hardie Grant food and lifestyle commissioning editor Rushani Epa.
