The story of a mountain and its people
On Saturday 7th April 2018 Orange Regional Museum will open Paddock to Plate: a history of food and wine in Orange and district.
This major new exhibition celebrates the history of food and wine in the Orange region, revealing how growing, processing, distribution and consumption of food has changed over time.
The exhibition will start with the mountain, an ancient volcano, which created the soils and climate that attracted indigenous people, then others from across the world. Through over 350 historic objects and photographs, ‘Paddock to Plate: a history of food and wine in Orange and district’ will take audiences on an adventure of exceptional flavours and share the stories of the innovative people that created them.
Paddock to Plate: a history of food and wine in Orange and district will open to the public on Saturday 7th April 2018 from 9am. The exhibition will be accompanied by a range of events and activities for all ages. Curriculum programs for local schools will be offered throughout the exhibition.
