Introduction to Indigenous Australian’s Food and Culture is a Professional Development Program designed for teachers to develop an understanding of, and appreciation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait culture.
This course takes participants on a cultural and food journey that connects them with one of the world’s oldest and richest living indigenous cultures that have existed for thousands of years. Participants will explore and develop an understanding: of the impact of settlement on indigenous culture; examine the similarities and differences between Aboriginal and European culture – including lore, kinship, the family unit, the importance of country and dreamtime; and the unifying power of cooking and sharing food.
Acting as a cultural guide on this journey will be: Tim Ella, a proud Yuin man, born in Guriwal (La Perouse) who is deeply committed to sharing his heritage with all interested Australians. Tim is an engaging educator, advocate for his people and talented storyteller.
As our guides on the food adventure, Jennice and Raymond Kersh, founders of the well-known and much-loved Edna’s Table, who have been bringing the unique flavours of bush tucker ingredients to Sydneysiders for decades will demonstrate how traditional methods can be modified to use in commercial kitchens.
Over two days, you will hear from these passionate voices as they bring indigenous culture and food to you in a thought-provoking, fun and tasty way. The two day course will give you an immersive cultural experience and a new way of looking and thinking about Australia’s Indigenous culture and food, bringing you a greater appreciation of the flavours of Australia.
