A Celebration of Lost Culinary Arts

Sat 29 June @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Long before the era of refrigeration and supermarkets, countless generations of women (mostly) grew and prepared food for large families in the Scenic Rim. They were thrifty and creative, using produce they had grown in their own gardens or sourced from nearby farms.

This event pays tribute to these pioneers in the ‘eat local’ movement. It’s a celebration that honours the history of food preparation and preservation and the recipes passed down through generations, from a time when you would bottle your tomatoes to last all year and ensure you had enough jam for the pantry, along with a couple of extra jars for the neighbours too.

Want to get involved? We invite Scenic Rim locals still practicing these lost culinary arts to be a part of this new event in 2024. Whether you preserve and pickle for pleasure or are part of a community organisation creating these products to fund raise or you have a small business focused on these techniques, we would love to hear from you.
