Dictionary of Sydney: A History of Wining and Dining in Sydney

Sydneysiders have always loved their food and drink. However, the type of food and drink and the manner in which it is consumed has changed drastically over the course of our history.

Dr. Nicole Cama from the Dictionary of Sydney charts a concise history of Sydney’s gastronomic proclivities, from gender-segregated bars and the six o’clock swill to modern, European wine establishments.

She also profiles vanishing culinary establishments, such as the classic Greek corner milk bar or Italian deli. What do you remember, and what do you miss?
