Review and photos of the day
It was a day of learning and eating with Slow Food Brisbane Snails Chris Jordan and Dale Chapman. While watching, kneading, mixing, skewering and rolling we learnt the history, habitat, textures, smells and uses of many of Australia’s bush foods. Dale and Chris shared their knowledge, not just about cooking but also of cooking with bush foods and ideas on how to use them in your own kitchen.
Demonstrations on using a sous vide for cooking and emulsification gave away some chefs secretes, but the highlight of the day was a shared lunch of
Myrtle Damper with Native Dukkah & olive oil
Kangaroo, Emu and Saltbaked Sweet Potato Kebabs with Saltbush & Seaweed Spice Mix
Grains Salad Lemon Myrtle Burnt Butter dressing and lemon myrtle goats cheese
Cinnamon Myrtle Spice gruyere ganache, anise myrtle meringue and Davidson Plum Jam
Welcome to the escargatoire
We are pleased award Chis Jordan founder of Three Little Birds Events a Snail of Approval. It is exciting to have someone dedicated to using and sharing native ingredients, ancient knowledge of customs and techniques to make food that tastes good while acknowledges, educates, celebrates the unique culture and natural resources of Australia.
