Regional Food Cultures and Networks Conference

This November saw the fourth annual Regional Food Cultures and Networks Conference held in Byron Bay, where Le Cordon Bleu presented alongside a host of experts in the agri-food, tourism and hospitality sectors.

Hosted by Southern Cross University, a leader in regional food research and networking, and partner institution of the Le Cordon Bleu Master of Gastronomic Tourism, the conference brought together people from industry, academia and government to explore key issues; showcase innovative thinking and demonstrate approaches to the development and sustainability of local food; and examine the cultural, economic, social and environmental implications and opportunities around local and regional food.

The Conference showcased research, industry application and extension, and innovations that are occurring within and beyond the farm gate. Representing Le Cordon Bleu, Dr Roger Haden, presented on "Sus whaling, Frenchification and tinned 'bull': Tourism, Taste and Cultural Identity in the Pacific Islands", whilst Academic Manager Susie Chant presented on "A Study of the History of Food Localism in Australia 1788-2014".

This was a great opportunity for our Le Cordon Bleu academic team to showcase and share their knowledge, whilst taking the pulse of the gastronomic tourism sector to inform the Le Cordon Bleu Master of Gastronomic Tourism and many of our other courses that benefit with the topics discussed.
