Locals to celebrate local food
FRESH, locally grown food, lovingly prepared by Harwood Hotel chef Tony Young, and a documentary on the benefits of a farmers market for communities will be the key features at an event ‘Celebrating Local Food’ next week.
The event, to be held at the Harwood Hotel next Monday night, is a follow on from the recent public consultation meeting regarding Yamba’s Farmers Market conducted by Live Prawn Productions Inc.
“The night is an opportunity for those who are interested in establishing a farmers market in Yamba and prospective stallholders to come along, meet everyone and enjoy some locally grown cuisinewhile at the same time having input to the discussion of a farmers market,” Live Prawn Productions Inc chair Debrah Novak said.
Harwood Hotel was chosen to host the event because chef Tony Young’s entire menu is sourced locally. He even has his own vege garden and chook pen out the back of the restaurant where he can source what he needs.
“Fresh food, and in particular our local food, doesn’t need a lot of work done to it, the flavours speak for themselves,” Tony said.
The night, which will begin at 6pm, is sponsored by chef Tony and Clarence Food, an initiative of Clarence Valley Council.
Bookings are essential as there are only 80 seats available and the cost is $5. RSVP by April 16 by contacting Debrah Novak on 6646 1174 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
