The Oldest Foods on Earth : A history of Australian foods
This is a book that everyone, young and old, should read for a deep and rich look into Aboriginal culture and the unique foods that nourished the Aboriginal people for over 50 000 years.
Until colonisation. “By bringing our own food and farming, which were totally unsuitable for the country, we obliterated the mercantile and nutritional life of the Indigenous community. We wiped it out.” Newton writes that food was an essential part of Aboriginal life. Without the land to source it, its nutritional value, and the cultural meaning behind its harvesting and procurement, the Aboriginal way of life was forcefully degraded.
This book, accompanied with Cooking With The Oldest Foods on Earth, make a wonderful gift.
