We’re launching The Field Guide to Australian Produce (Thames & Hudson) at the Food & Words launch party on Friday 9 September at The Mint, Sydney.
The Field Guide tells the stories of the people growing and producing the best food in the country, and you know we like that.
You’ll get to meet the Field Guide’s editor Ewan McEoin, see the book ahead of anyone else – and get it signed. But best of all, you can Speed Meet a Farmer. Some of the very farmers who are listed in this compendium of deliciousness.
The way it works is this. We’ve invited farming friends to come along and meet you in speedy one-on-one sessions. You get to ask them whatever you like, about soil, sustainability, work hours, recalcitrant pigs and the highs and lows of farming life. No topic off limits. Tasmanian veggie grower Paulette Whitney/Provenance Growers, Blue Mountains NSW heirloom veggie specialist Erika Watson from Epicurean Harvest and Martin Boetz from Cooks Co-op are among the chosen.
We’re also very, very pleased that the menu is going to feature food direct from many of the farmers listed in the Field Guide and some of our favourites, including gelato from The Pines Kiama dairy in Kiama NSW, where this photograph was taken (by Michael Wee for Country Style).
