Kiama Farmers Market – Seniors Week Cooking Demo



Kiama Farmers Market invited Slow Food to participate in the Seniors Week festivities on 6th April. We decided to focus on “end of summer corn” We prepared lots of corn on the cob and corn fritters  from Bill Granger’s recipe served with an avocado and finger lime salsa and a tamarillo chutney.

Look for the recipe in the recipe section.

(Corn is a particularly good example of the importance of the Slow Food Movement. After reading the Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan, his description of GM corn and its impact on farming communities in the USA inspired me to join Slow Food Saddleback. He describes the importance of diversity, thinking and questioning farming methods used in food production today) Its worth the read to help you grasp the  SLOW in the Slow Food Movement.


Celebrity Chef James Reeson of WIN TV Alive and Cooking entertained the crowds by cooking a selection of market produce during the afternoon.
