Eating your history

This week on GLAMcity we eat our history with Sydney Living Museums resident colonial gastronomer Jacqui Newling.

We talk about how tastes and techniques fall in and out of favour, what food says about us and find out what a Kangaroo steamer is!

Tamson and Anna  also do a LIVE cake tasting of the famous Meroogal sponge, a colonial cake served by the ‘misses Thorburn’ sisters – Belle, Kate, Georgina and Tottie – at their ‘At Home’ tea parties in the early 1900s.

To find out more about what’s on at the Sydney Living Museums head to their website

Or to try making the Meroogal cake at home yourself – head to Jacqui’s blog The Cook and the Curator

This is the last episode of GLAMcity for 2017 – we will be back in 2018,  so if you want to appear on the show or think there is something we should cover- get in touch –
