Aesthetic: The New Zealand Symposium of Gastronomy is in Auckland, from September 2 to 4 this year.

The Symposium of Gastronomy welcomes scholars, cooks, food writers and armchair foodies to talk about the history, practice, science and philosophy of food and foodways.

The New Zealand Symposia for Gastronomy began in 2005 and are intended to promote greater understanding of New Zealand’s culinary culture. The symposia are intimate, friendly and encourage networking and discussion. They also always include good meals.

Papers are now sought on the theme of the 2016 Symposium: Aesthetic. Papers must be no longer than 45 minutes in duration. Multiple presenters and roundtable discussions are welcome. Papers will be published in The Aristologist: An Antipodean Journal of Gastronomy.

The 2016 Symposium sessions will be held at the Auckland University of Technology School of Hospitality and Tourism, 55 Wellesley Street East. AUT now offers a new Master of Gastronomy programme and we will be welcoming staff and students to participate and attend our symposium.

Abstracts, together with a short biography of the presenters, should be submitted by 31 July 2016, to andretaber@xtra.co.nz. For more information, see aristologist.com
