Read the book – in bookstores now

This book, A Timeline of Australian Food, by Jan O'Connell expands on much of the material from the Australian Food History Timeline website. This new, lavishly illustrated book is based on the timeline and covers 150 years of Australian food – from mutton to MasterChef. It’s in bookshops now – just in time for your Christmas shopping. More details here.

The Australian food history timeline project started as a spin-off from my food memoir, Me and My Big Mouth. But it kept expanding. You can still buy the memoir by following this link.

Explore the timeline

This timeline traces the history of Australian food since white settlement in 1788, with a glance at what came before. Entries are by decade; scroll down and use the Load More button, use the menu to jump to a decade, or search for a specific topic.

But wait, there’s more

You’ll find other, mostly food-related musings in My (Other) Blog in the menu above, and on my author website Me and My Big Mouth. These are stories that didn’t fit the timeline format. Or check out my YouTube channel here to see Australian food history timeline stories brought to life. For updates and other fun stuff,  follow the Timeline on Facebook.
