Take your tastebuds around the world

cooking classesDoes Australia have a cuisine? Lamb chops, kangaroo, damper, lamingtons and Vegemite sandwiches spring to mind.

However Australia’s cuisine is much more diverse. It is shaped by waves of immigrants from all over the world – and Australia has some of the best fresh produce to cook with.

To celebrate this diversity, Nutrition and Dietetics and Flinders Language department are hosting a series of 40-minute cooking master classes that look at the many cuisines that have shaped our home cooking and eating habits.

As part of Flinders University’s 50th Anniversary, the eight free classes will cover popular dishes from China, Italy, France, Spain, Singapore, Greece, Iran and Australia.

“Not only do we have a wide range of ingredients available to us here in Australia but we also manage to fuse together the best bits from different cultures,” says Flinders dietitian Gabby O’Dea, who will help to run the classes.

“If you feel like some inspiration for quick and easy-to-prepare healthy meal options, be sure to come along.”

Explore the many cuisines that make up Australian food by joining one of the free cultural cooking classes at Oasis, Function Centre at Flinders Bedford Park on 17 and 18 August. Secure a place at https://www.facebook.com/events/1761257790813986/
