Australian Milk – Dairying and the making of milk

Slow Food Brisbane hosts an evening to meet Gregie the Farmer.  You will also gain insights into how Slow Food Brisbane selects its “Snail of Approval” awardees.

Join us for an evening of slow food, delicious tastes, a glass of wine, conviviality and food for thought. Our guest speaker Gregie the farmer promises a highly stimulating and informative chat that will grow our understanding of what it is like to be a milk producer in an environment where price is a major driver for popular media and supermarkets.

In addition we will be showcasing Snail of Approval Recipients and presenting an award to Peter and Lyndall from the Frolicking Goat.

You will be treated to a delicious supper of home style hearty winter vegetable soups, topped with Frolicking Goat Tomme de Burbank and served with crusty bread (GF option available) and of course a glass of wine.  Plus there will be a delectable dessert: a 4Real Milk panna cotta made by Snail of Approval recipient, Chef Tay from Newstead Brewery, topped with wild raspberry couli made by another Snail of Approval recipient, bush tucker chef Dale Chapman, founder of First Food Co.

Slow food is about Good, Clean and Fair and protecting food biodiversity. For us to be informed consumers we feel strongly that we need to hear directly from the farmers and producers. Join us.
