Hey, If you could offer your thoughts on some of the questions listed below or just on modern Australian cuisine in general, that would be greatly appreciated.
1. What do you believe Australian cuisine is?
Meat and potato, stuff grown on the land, but also the foods that have come from overseas
2. What flavours/ingredients/technique s do you believe to be ‘Australian? Why?
cooking in the fire, bbq, because I've grown up with it as being 'Australian'
3. Do you believe that currently, Australia lacks its own food identity?
4.(If you answered no to question 3) What food cultures do you believe have shaped Australia’s current food identity? In what ways have they shaped Australia’s food identity?
Within Australia there is, but outside the country everyone thinks "shrimp on the barbie" or other things of the sort, which in turn create an identity for Australia, however not being overly accurate.
5. Do you believe that currently there is a lack of knowledge about what Australian cuisine is in the Australian community? Why?
Yes, because people have the unchanged views of pre ww2, it has changed dramatically since then with all the immigrants coming in.
6. Do you believe that Australian’s should be more aware of what Australian cuisine really is? In what ways do you think this can be achieved?
Yes, people should be made aware. Ad campaigns, education, all Australian restaurants, etc.
7. Do you believe that modern Australian cuisine can be classified as ‘bush tucker’ or is this a misconception of the Australian public?
Misconception... a lot of it can be classed as that though
