This coming weekend I'll be dwarfed by Sydney sky scrappers, amazed by seeing so many people at once and warmed by a more northerly warm spring. I'm stepping out of my comfort zone and into the world of city living. I hope to meet up with a few people that I've been in contact with over the last few years online. I'd like to meet you'all in person. I'll be telling my story at two events. Its a long way to travel and I don't get to Sydney very often, so if you'd like to hear me tell stories then this is your chance. If you can't make it, please pass this info onto someone that you think might. Your help spreading the word online is greatly appreciated.
OCTOBER 19th FOOD AND WORDS - The Mint If you live on a diet of cookbooks, devour food magazines, feed your mind with stories about food and the people who produce it, and think food writers and cookbook authors are the true rock(cake) stars, then this unique one-day program is for you.
Curated by food writer Barbara Sweeney, the event stars more than 10 food writers, who will present talks covering an alphabet soup of food-related topics.
Chefs Martin Boetz (Cooks Co-op) and Alex Herbert (Bird Cow Fish) will prepare a picnic lunch to be enjoyed on the grass. Delicious morning and afternoon teas are included.
OCTOBER 20th CONSERVATORIUM ESPRESS BAR Come to Conservatorium Espresso Bar to hear Rohan Anderson share his thoughts on sustainable food and how to grow, gather, hunt, cook. This is your opportunity to hear Rohan share his story, grab a copy of his book and enjoy a coffee with him before he heads back to Victoria.
