This book by one of Australia's foremost food commentators sets out to dispel, in no uncertain terms, the existence of an Australian culinary cringe. Cherry believes that the current debate about cultural identity has overlooked the development of Australia's culinary habits and that Australian food does have a style quite distinct from its European and American cousins. Topics covered include the Asianization of the Australian Palate, the mania for Thai food, the bliss point factor (the gustatory equivalent of the G-spot), cooking oil, "foodoceuticals", diet and criminality, exotic species, sexism in restaurants, the social significance of being able to cook, table manners, kangaroo consumption and regionalism.
