Barton's Federation Degustation

Edmund Barton raises a toast

About the event

As part of the exhibition at Australian Parliament House celebrating the life and work of Australia’s first Prime Minister Sir Edmund ‘Toby’ Barton, we invite you to a themed degustation dinner created by our Executive Chef David Learmonth.

Barton’s passion for culinary culture was well known, and during the push towards Federation he travelled Australia hosting banquets to promote the concept of nationhood. Using notes from menus associated with Barton's fundraising dinners, Chef Learmonth has created a dinner with modern and period elements, served under the flagpole in Members Hall at Australian Parliament House.
