Interactive cooking workshops - Introducing the Farmer to Table project

Hi all,

My name is Ben Mac and I run an organisation called the Social Food Project, running pop-up food events that have sustainability outcomes.

We are running a project called Farmer to Table, which is designed to connect local ethical producers and consumers in Melbourne. The project includes a monthly cooking workshop where people get to meet a producer, cook with their produce and enjoy a sit down shared lunch. Our next workshop is this Sunday and is highlighting duck producer Fiona Briers from Vue Du Volcan Farm. Here are the details:

As well as the workshops, we are also creating Producer Profiles that include a 5 minute video, Q&A, photos of the farm and recipes inspired by their produce - check them out here:

We would love to connect with more people on this project, so if you are interested in attending the workshops, being highlighted yourself as a producer or have any general feedback/advice - please get in touch! :slight_smile:
