from the style of cookery and the cooking equipment to the culture that
it related to. In this presentation, Sally will discuss the methods of
cooking and the availability of ingredients during the colonial era in
Tasmania including references to meals and rations eated by the
officials and convicts at the Port Arthur penal settlement.

natural, readily-available ingredients. A bestselling author of 15
cookbooks and owner/operator of the Sally Wise Cooking School, she is a
