Colonial Australia and Native Food

It’s difficult to pinpoint what exactly makes up Australian ‘cuisine’. New evidence has emerged revealing how European settlers to Australia incorporated indigenous ingredients and foods into their own. Journals and diaries from settlers reveal enjoyment of recipies such as kangaroo soup and bush turkey pie.

How much did early Australian settlers adopt native food, and how much of it remains today?  Blake Singley, Curator at the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies and program visitor in the School of History at the Australian National University joined The Daily to highlight this overlooked topic.
