The white colonisers of Australia suffered from Alliumphobia, a fear of garlic. Local cooks didn�t touch the stuff and it took centuries for that fear to lift. This food history of Australia shows we held onto British assumptions about produce and cooking for a long time and these fed our views on racial hierarchies and our place in the world. Before Garlic we had meat and potatoes; After Garlic what we ate got much more interesting. But has a national cuisine emerged? What is Australian food culture?

From the cult magazine, Kinfolk, comes the much anticipated Kinfolk Home. Interest in home design has been on the rise for some time, but Kinfolk’s focus on slowing down and creating a more intentional, beautiful home is where the attention is shifting. Through luscious photographs and insightful interviews, The Kinfolk Home takes us into 40 homes around the world, from the Americas to Europe, Asia to Africa, ending in Australia. The homes range from an old cabin in the woods to clean-lined modern apartments, from singles living in small spaces to sprawling, multigenerational houses in the country. Each will feel unmistakably Kinfolk. The book will function as a companion piece to The Kinfolk Table, and will be the same size and format.
