Award-winning author and food journalist John Newton is the national winner of the Gourmand Awards in the Best Culinary History Book category for his book The Oldest Foods on Earth: A history of Australian native foods (NewSouth).
In this book, Newton points out that we celebrate cultural and culinary diversity, yet shun foods that grew here before white settlers arrived. Newton argues that embracing native foods will help to reconcile us with the land and its first inhabitants.
