First I’ll be chatting to Helen Leach about her latest book The Pavlova Story: A slice of New Zealand’s culinary history. Helen is a Professor of Anthropology at the University of Otago who has enjoyed studying the cultural history of food and recipes and how they evolve. Pavlova is dear to all our hearts, and stomachs, and we’ll chat about the fascinating history of this dish.
Lloyd Davis is a zoologist, writer and film maker, and science communicator, dedicated to making science popular and assessable. He has written numerous books on penguins, for adults and children. Looking for Darwin was released last year and he co-wrote the recently released The business of Documentary Filmmaking. We will chat about his books and his new role as the Stuart Chair in Science Communication at the University of Otago.
