Event Description

Slow Food Melbourne in association with Melbourne Farmers’ Markets presents Fair Food Kids and Nonna Power at the Substation Farmers’ Market on Sunday 19 October. Join us for an action packed day hosted by Cameron Smith of Triple R’s Eat It show.

Nonna Power cooking demonstrations kick off at 10:30am with Cam Smith showing us the wonder of parsnip in a skordalia, paired with McIvor Farm pork and fennel sausages. At 11:30am, Shuki (of Shuki & Louisa) will let us in on his mother’s recipe for lamb on cinnamon sticks, served with a seasonal salad. Finally at 12:30pm, Cam will whip up an irresistible sweet treat using market produce: nuts, honey, perhaps some fair trade chocolate.

Throughout the day, Fair Food Kids are invited to join us in making vegetable face masks, chalk drawings and designing seed packets. Plant a seed and take it home to grow! No bookings are necessary and all activities are free of charge. This is a Slow Food Melbourne initiative, supported by Transition Towns Hobson’s Bay.

Short description—organiser

Slow Food seeks to preserve local food traditions and reignite people’s interest in the food they eat – where it comes from, how it tastes and the impact of their food choices.

Slow Food Melbourne works locally with Victorian producers to spread the Slow Food philosophy and give Melbourne access to some of the best produce the state has to offer through the monthly Slow Food Farmer’s Market, held at the Abbotsford Covent.

We are part of a global network of Slow Food members. Founded in 1986 in Bra, Italy, Slow Food is a not-for-profit organisation established to counteract our modern fast food and fast life culture.
