Seed Cake and Honey Prawns: Fashion an/Bannerman, Col/Plast/0642276407/S009-G
National Library of Australia
From blackened damper and mutton to the designer concoctions of food and fashion fanatics, Australian food has left behind its colonial privations to become as delectably diverse as its population.
In this wry, audacious and absorbing consideration of the history of food in this country over the past 150 years, Colin Bannerman spares no dish, no recipe and no chef that captures his attention. Carefully researched, drawing on an array of magazines, newspapers and books held at the National Library, Seed Cake and Honey Prawns: Fashion and Fad in Australian Food is an entertaining and delightfully opinionated book about an essential aspect of Australian culture.
