Dinner with Bruce Pascoe

Wednesday 22 May, 7pm - 10pm

Take your seat in the Hub Restaurant for an MKW highlight event exploring the food and agriculture of the oldest continuous culture on Earth.

Author of over 20 books, Bruce Pascoe’s Dark Emu won the Book of the Year as well as the Indigenous Writer’s Prize in the 2016 NSW Premier’s Literary Awards.

As the evening’s host, Bruce will delve into his research inverting the hunter-gatherer tag for precolonial Aboriginal Australians, by mining the diaries and writings of early explorers as evidence that Aboriginal people were sowing, harvesting, irrigating and storing food for millennia.

This feast of words will be accompanied by a specially curated menu of bushfood-infused dishes served in convivial share platters, catered by Mirritya Mundya.
