The concept is simple:
Step #1) Take our award-winning kitchen and service team
Step#2) Find four local producers,
Step #3) Put them in the same room together
Step #4) Serve the resulting magic to Canberra public whilst above-mentioned producers mingle and speak about their product.
So, the ticket price gets you so much more than just a delicious four course menu (not that there is anything wrong with that); you get to pick the brains of some of Canberra’s finest and most innovative local food and drink producers while you eat the four lovingly crafted courses.
This time round we are lucky enough to have the following three speakers on our panel as well as a surprise guest that we’re not telling you about.
Ewan McAsh – McAsh Oysters, Bateman’s Bay
Ewan and his father Kevin run their Clyde River oyster farm together and have cemented a name for themselves through their innovation and quality of product. Utilising the Clyde’s famously clean water, they produce a variety of top quality oysters served in such auspicious venues as Sage Dining Rooms. They emphasise sustainability alongside quality and are deeply passionate about the business. Ewan and his oysters tell their own stories and will collectively make a magical first course.
Mitch Pearce – Canberra Urban Honey, Canberra
We all like to eat food grown locally and it doesn’t get much more local than food grown in our literal backyards. That’s the idea behind Canberra Urban Honey. Started to boost the number of bees in our Bush Capital, the project has taken on a highly successful food production mission. Mitch has had his honey awarded at the National Honey Show – the only urban honey producer to be so – and we are in love with the product ourselves. Like all our panel, Mitch is dying to tell you all about it and and answer your questions about this wonderful project in sustainability.
Scott Gledhill – Wimbaliri Wines, Murrumbateman
Scott and his local winery will be providing the refreshment for the evening. A firm believer in letting wines show off their terroir by themselves, Scott is a perfect fit for our showcase of regional excellence. Scott makes wine that is an expression of where and when it was made and does so with numerous fantastic examples that we are proud to feature on our restaurant winelist. Let yourself be guided through the matching process by one of the best in the local biz.
Special Guest – Parts Unknown, Earth (probably)
You’re just going to have to wait to find this one out.
