Jamie Oliver’s chefs for Valley’s Feast in the Field

ONE of the Clarence Valley’s signature food events, Feast in the Field, has just received the green light to utilise three of the chefs from Jamie Oliver’s Italian restaurant in Brisbane for this year’s event.

Mike Smith, one of the event co-ordinators, Organic Matters Foundation (OMF) director and owner of Solum Farm where the event is being held, said this has now taken Feast in the Field to a new level.

“We were given the thumbs up last week to partner with Jamie’s Italian Brisbane and when you add the calibre of Clayton Donovan and headline music act Tijuana Cartel our event has now become very global,” he said.

“Our team is very excited by the collaboration of local and internationally acclaimed chefs and musicians whose passion for community, education, growing food and sustainable living equals our own mission statement for this event.

“Jamie Oliver is a celebrity chef, restaurateur and media personality known for his food focused television shows, cookbooks and global campaigns for better food education.”

Organisers of Feast In The Field have now put a call out for volunteers to assist with the event over two days.

They need 45 people with a diversity of skills to help run the event. Applications are now open and can be accessed through the Feast In The Field Facebook site.

This year’s event will be held on April 30 and only 150 tickets have been allocated, with over 100 already sold.

Tickets are available through www.stickytickets.com.au
