About the Book
Jan O’Connell is a grocer’s grand-daughter and a baby-boomer who has spent a lifetime in leading Australian advertising agencies, writing about ice cream, lollies, beer, yoghurt, biscuits, soup and a multitude of other things you eat and drink. She collaborated with her husband on the launch of a glossy magazine, Regional Food Australia, and still contributes to their online and video projects. Her Australian food timeline, australianfoodtimeline.com.au documents more than a century of changes in the way Australians eat, shop and grow their food. Her second book - A Timeline of Australian Food: from mutton to MasterChef - from New South Publishing, will be in Australian bookstores in December 2017.
