Form of a Q&A style panel forum discussing the intersection of the Barossa’s Food, Wine and Art communities

As an extraordinary year comes to a close and social gathering is more acceptable, it’s time to relaunch our series of “Conversations that matter”.

This series will revolve around Food Culture in the Barossa and will run over four nights from December culminating in an event during the vintage festival.

Our first conversation will take the form of a Q&A style panel forum discussing the intersection of the Barossa’s Food, Wine and Art communities.

Guest panellists will include Emily Hay, Grant Dickson and Dee Edwards representing diverse new perspectives in the Barossa’s, food, wine art and music communities.

Questions for panel discussion :

• Are these themes Independent or symbiotic? (throughout history, food, art and high culture seem to have had a special relationship)• Are a communities foodways constrained and defined by nostalgia and prior tradition or can they represent emerging cultural change?• Is the term Culinary arts overstating foods artistic value?

Open Discussion Question:

Almost 20 years ago, Angela Heuzenroeder in Barossa Food wrote of a hybrid cuisine rooted in central European food traditions, overlaid with British colonial influences. Similarly Noris Ioannou in Barossa Journeys noted that migration continues to change the community mix, and that this change was building new layers in the culinary (and arts) landscape ….

• Where are we now, do the historical food traditions of the Barossa remain relevant and contemporary as our community mix evolves”

Bookings are essential and there will be wine and platters available for purchase on the night.
