The Farmed Table with Brendan Cato
On Friday and Saturday nights last weekend, 27 and 28 October a wonderful meal was prepared and served at the Gerringong Siding by Brendan and friends.
Several Slow Food Saddleback members attended, and were excited by the use of fresh local produce and foraged goodies.
Brendan’s idea is to use Farmed Table pop up to bring people together to enjoy a meal whilst showcasing foods from boutique producers, local farmers and artisans.
Following the meal all green waste is returned to the farmers to feed their animals.
The menu featured Mahbrook baby leek, and eggs from Foxground. This was supplemented by roast cauliflower and Pecora dairy cheese.
The main courses were yellowfin tuna with native finger limes and cured mullet roe, and chickens from Crooked River, with unwanted leaves and forgotten weeds!
Rhubarb and granita with lemon aspen completed a wonderful meal.
What a great night, and exciting ideas on food and its production was shared by all.
