About The Event

Raise a glass to the secret feminist history of beer and get the scoop on diet culture in this hearty conversation about Griffith Review’s flavour-packed new food-themed edition, A Matter of Taste. Join Editor Carody Culver as she talks to contributors Sam George-Allen and Sam van Zweden about the slippery connections between witchcraft and brewing, the dangerous evangelism of wellness and the covert power of ‘women’s work’.

Griffith Review 78: A Matter of Taste serves up a smorgasbord of essays, fiction and reportage about what we eat and how we talk about it. It explores food as spectacle and status symbol, as fad and fantasy, as capital and cultural currency. If we are what we eat, then who are we in the twenty-first century?

Sam George-Allen is an award-winning author living in southern Tasmania. Her first book, Witches: What Women Do Together, was published by Penguin Random House in 2019 and by Melville House (US/UK) in January 2020.

Sam van Zweden is a non-fiction writer interested in food, memory, mental health and the body. Her debut book, Eating with My Mouth Open, won the 2019 KYD Unpublished Manuscript Award.

Carody Culver is the editor of Griffith Review.
