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. Gathered around the fire, food was shared, seasoned with songs and stories. Tasmania’s menus have changed dramatically over the years, but one thing remains the same… food is better when shared with friends.
