Eat + Drink
In the diary of Reverend Knopwood, Tasmania's first Chaplain, he recorded that when he dined with his friends on 10th Oct, 1804, the "piece de resistance" was emu, which he considered to be "very excellent". For centuries before that, Tasmanian Aboriginal men hunted forrester kangaroos, the women skillfully targeted seals and dived for abalone and crayfish. The haul was shared around the fire, sharing anecdotes of the hunting expiditions and stories about the Dreaming. Tasmania's menus have changed dramatically over the years, but one thing has remained the same... we still love dining with friends.
