|Abstract:||The Art of Living in Australia was first published in 1893 and urged the value of Mediterranean eating and drinking habits for the Australian way of life. An experienced physician, Philip E. Muskett promoted healthy living habits appropriate for the climate and conditions of 19th century Australia, including the best clothing, household arrangements, necessary exercise and a healthy diet. Finding a resemblance between the conditions of southern Europe, he implores white Australians to eat more vegetables and less meat, in the style of those from the Mediterranean.The book also contains over 300 recipes contributed by Mrs Wicken, lecturer in charge of ‘domestic economy’ at Sydney Technical College, including for salads, vegetable dishes, seafood and sweets. This new edition includes the original index, plus facsimiles of pages of historical interest from the 1893 edition.|
