From chop picnic to sausage sizzle
Université d’Adélaïde, Australie
In the past hundred or so years, the barbecue has become the unofficial emblem of Australian hospitality. Not only is it specifically promoted as characteristically Australian – as in international tourism marketing in the 1980s and the promotion of the national day in 2010 – but also it is recognised as emblematically Australian and consistently nominated as a national dish. From the 1950s international students coming to Australia to study have been welcomed with a barbecue. New immigrants are introduced to Australia by means of a barbecue. Touring theatre troupes have been entertained at a barbecue. Even visiting royalty, such as Prince William, heir to the English throne, and his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, have been treated to an Australian barbecue on their visits to Australia.
