Thanks to all who joined us at Slow Food Brisbane’s first event for 2019.
Chef, Tay Olsen took us on a flavoursome journey through urban farms of Brisbane and south-east Queensland. We enjoyed beetroot and mushroom ravioli featuring mushrooms from Little Acres farm at West End, wild boar with local greens from Jane Street community garden and a baclava featuring south-east Queensland’s own bunya nut. All courses were expertly matched with a full-flavoured beer brewed on site at the Newstead Brewing Co.
It was a delight to sample the locally produced mushrooms from Little Acres farm and to hear Mickey and Amy talk about what inspired them to create their urban mushroom farm.
Delicious greens from the Jane Street Community Garden further complemented our taste experience and it was magical to hear about James and Melissa’s passion for the work they’re doing in New Farm and as educators in urban edible gardening.
Slow Food Brisbane’s new committee has had its inaugural meeting for 2019 and is excited about the program being formulated for the year. Visit our About Us page for more information about the 2019 committee and keep an eye on our Events page and Facebook for event information as it unfolds.
