We seem to be stuck on wattle seed and lemon myrtle, but supply a few good cooks and whole food shops with other top produce and watch as Australia transforms its diet and develops a genuine Australian cuisine.
— Bruce Pascoe, Dark Emu

Drinks with Chefs: Bruce Pascoe

A casual, industry-friendly drinks event brings Brisbane's food community together in a yarning circle. Bruce Pascoe from the Bunurong clan of the Kulin nation is a teacher, farmer, fisherman, and author of Dark Emu Black Seeds: Agriculture or Accident? In his book, Pascoe appeals to Australia's culinary experts to embrace indigenous foods and agricultural practices in order to sustain a resilient food system.

Come along to hear Pascoe elaborate on adoptable culinary practices and the social, cultural and environmental benefits of collaborating with indigenous Australians in a bid to expand the Australian cuisine. An audience Q&A discussion will be navigated by Pascoe and a panel of experts including Jarrod Huey (head chef of Merriweather Cafe & game hunter), and Tristan Schultz (decolonising design & indigenous design futures researcher) & Robert Pekin (ex-dairy farmer & founder of Food Connect).
