Tonsley Talks Barbara Santich

France bewitched author Barbara Santich as a student in the early 1970's. She vowed to return, and soon enough she did - with husband and infant twins in tow!

'Wild Asparagus, Wild Strawberries' tells the story of ther magical two years that follwed as Barbara and her family launched themselves into French village life, a world of winemaking, rabbit raising and cherry picking.

This period in Barbara's life awakened her lifelong love affair with food history leading to her career as a highly respected food writer, culinary historian and academic. Her book on Australian food history, 'Bold Palates: Australia's Gastronomic Heritage', was shortlisted in the non-fiction category of the 2013 Prime Minister's Literary Awards.

Books available for sale.
