Gastronomy has a breadth and depth of meaning that is ancient, relevant and urgent.
It is not just about food. It is about our connections to each other and the earth that sustains us.
Here in Tasmania, and especially the north, many of us make our living from the land
We are tillers
We are nurturers
Food connects us.
Food is the thing that we all need in common.
Gastronomy is all of that and more. It is the paddock to plate, the farmers, growers, fishers, keepers and producers, the cafes and restaurants, the source of our prosperity.
It is what makes living here different from other places.
Here, in Northern Tasmania, gastronomy is really about us.
Gastronomy is about us.
