Learn more about our very special guest speaker – Rohan Anderson
Whole Larder Love began as an online journal by Rohan Anderson, documenting the story of a life change.

A significant life change for a regular person embedded in western society.
Rohan had a metamorphosis driven by a desire to alter his food and lifestyle choices. At the beginning, he was clearly unhealthy. Obesity, food allergy, anxiety, depression and hyper-tension where all part of daily reality (most of which he was medicated for). Gradually he came to realise he was his own worst enemy. It was his actions alone that landed him in this dubious state of personal health. His health concerns, a growing understanding of his environmental impact and the responsibility of being a parent, where catalysts nudging him to make deliberate change.

From highly processed frozen chicken nuggets, to fresh backyard grown broccoli, that’s the story in a nutshell. Rohan has gone to great lengths to find answers and has taken practical action to address what he identified as the contributing factors to his personal health issues, and his undeniable impact on the natural world. www.wholelarderlove.com

Rabbit Ramble

This community event is held at the Tooborac Hall (on the Northern Hwy) and it is where you get to show off your culinary prowess. Judged by a panel of rabbit connoisseurs, entries are scored on presentation, taste, texture and imagination (the X factor) with the winners receiving an engraved chef’s knife (home-cook category) and a locally made bread board (professional category).

Entries must be made from wild rabbit (not farmed).Entrants should bring any pots, pans or equipment they may require to cook/heat up their dish and whatever props, garnish, accompaniments required to finish your dish ready for judging.

Basic kitchen facilities include a domestic oven and stove top, a microwave and an electric outside barbecue are available.

Entries are required to cook enough for six people – and after the judging, people will be able to sample the dishes.
