Forage Fire Feast – Keep the fires burning – a First Nations gourmet & culture experience

August 1 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEST

Thursday 1 August 5.30pm–9.30pm

World-class entertainment while you enjoy a stunning menu prepared by Aunty Dale Chapman (of My Dilly Bag), a proud Yuwaalaraay Kooma woman from Dirranbandi and one of Australia’s leading indigenous award-winning chefs using sustainable, ethically sourced bushfoods and local produce.

Flaxton Gardens outdoor terrace with 140 guests at 14 tables (undercover in a clear roofed and walled marquee). You may also wonder who else is joining this event that everyone wants to go to – come along to be surprised for yourself.

Aunty Dale working with talented chefs, including Chris Jordan of Three Little Birds, a Koori man, will enhance this experience of surprising food, produce and culture in this authentic event.

Following a stunningly beautiful Welcome to Country, with indigenous music and dance, and a stunning fire performance the evening will bring to life the three elements of this unique experience. The menu has been designed to showcase First Nations culture and talent that is celebrated through a shared gourmet experience.

Forage. The forage experience will come to you with first hand accounts of the gathering of the bush foods from the indigenous foragers. Savour native ingredients from country through your senses of sight, touch, taste and smell with understanding of origin and purpose.

Fire. Raising the temperature, fire and heat are harnessed to transform the gathered foods for an experience to be shared. The First Nations chefs also have their own stories to tell you.

Feast. A unique gourmet experience is also a seasonal one, so we can’t enthrall your taste buds just yet about the experience: canape, starter, main, sides, dessert and cheese.

No feast would be complete without an extraordinary entertainer – Onyx will be performing live.
