the evolution, science, practice and philosophy of modern gastronomy to be held at :
Prefab, 14 Jessie Street Wellington, New Zealand
Saturday 29th November to Monday, December 1st
‘ferment’ is a joint meeting of the New Zealand Food History Society and the Australian Symposium of Gastronomy. It aims to bring together scholars, cooks, food writers and armchair foodies to discuss ideas in modern gastronomy - evolution, science, practice and philosophy. The possibilities for presentation and discussion encompass the full breadth of 21st century gastronomy, from economics, sustainability, organics and globalisation to indigenous foods, foraging, fermentation, fadism and, of course, the future. Given that Wellington is both coffee and craft beer capital of New Zealand, presentations on these topics are particularly welcomed as would ideas and insights from young cooks working at the forefront of modern gastronomy.
