Perth Writers

Perth writers festival

The demand for cookbooks, food blogs and cooking programs shows no signs of abating; instead our desire and interest in all things food related is insatiable. What is it about food that inspires such passion? More than just simple nourishment for the body, it provides us with enjoyment, inspires creativity, is charged with political meaning, laden with memory and is a way to find social connection. It helps us to build family, and a sense of home and identity.

Thanks to social media, we now have new ways to share our love of food, with an explosion of food blogging and photography. From Paddock to Print celebrates the storytelling around food and the tradition of great food writing, while examining these new platforms for sharing our passion. Connect with fellow food lovers including Arthur Street Kitchen’s Hetty McKinnon, celebrity chef Simon Bryant, Delicious Magazine’s Valli Little, That Sugar Film’s Damon Gameau, Michelle Crawford of Hugo and Elsa, River Cottage’s Paul West, Forager’s Pemberton owner and chef Sophie Zakolar, The Edible Balcony’s Indira Naidoo, Masterchef’s Alice Zaslavsky, sustainability expert Chris Ferreira, and US food journalist Diane Fresque.

Join us for a cultural feast made with the freshest ingredients – the best food writing, photography, tastings, conversations and workshops.
