SA Branch: Lecture – “Jean-Louis  Edouard Bourbaud, French wine expert and horticulturist in 19th century SA

22 June 2021 @ 7:00 pm ACST

Lecture by Emeritus Professor Barbara Santich, renowned food historian, author and lover of all things French.
Professor Santich spent several years living in France in the late ‘70s, and wrote a memoir about that time called ‘Wild Asparagus, Wild Strawberries’.

The lecture will focus on Jean-Louis Edouard Bourbaud, a French wine expert who came to SA in the mid-19th Century, and who also encouraged mulberry growing for silk production.

The meeting will have a special French flair, with a welcome glass of ‘bubbly’, wine, beer or soft drinks, and cheese platters on the round tables, with ‘Cabaret’ style seating.
