Food, travel and philosophy are a huge part of our lives.
The Courier-Mail Annexe explores these topics.
11am - 11.30am A restaurant, a bar, a cafe, a nightclub (or all of them) ; something raw (or all raw), something pickled, something deep fried, something foraged, something smoky, some skippy, some seaweed; small plates, shared plates; on artisan crockery and wood planks; coming from a wood fired oven or grill. Is this the new Oz diner? (Is there any hope for regional Oz cuisines?)
MC Chris Dore, Anthony Huckstep, John Lethlean, Elizabeth Meryment, Sharnee Rawson, Dan Stock, Simon Thomsen, Simon Wilkinson
12pm - 1pm Is Australian regional tourism losing out to the cruising boom - does a port or safe anchorage level the playing field?

MC Fiona Donnelly, Anthony Huckstep, John Lethlean, Lizzie Loel, Elizabeth Meryment, Dan Stock, Anooska Tucker-Evans, Necia Wilden

3.45pm - 4.15pm Food allergies and intolerances, restrictive diets, bio-individuality - a chef’s nightmare. How do we handle this pandemic positively?
