“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” - Virginia Woolf
Such literary luminaries as Roddy Doyle and Jeanette Winterson are in Sydney this week for the annual The Sydney Writer’s Festival, which kicked off on Monday and runs until 20th May. We love a good read at Delivery Hero. In fact there’s nothing better on a weekend than nestling into the couch with some takeaway Thai food and a good book. We’ll be heading to the writers festival to find what some of Australia’s best-loved authors like Kate Grenville and David Malouf have been up to. And of course we want to know what their favourites dishes are! In the mean time, here’s the low-down on some of our fav Aussie and international authors.
Anita Heiss – Salt and Pepper Squid Australian Indigenous author, Dr. Anita Heiss (“I’m Not a Racist, But…”), describes herself as ‘a concrete Koori with Westfield dreaming’. She writes poetry, academic texts, books for children and chicklit novels. While Dr. Heiss admits she doesn’t cook much, when she does head into the kitchen, kangaroo is on the menu! Otherwise chocolate rates as one of her favourite things, and she says her last meal would be salt’n'pepper squid (that”s definitely one of our favourites too!) You can catch Dr. Heiss talking about her latest book with Anne Summers today at the Sydney Writer’s Festival. (more…)
