Harvest picnic treat
Slow Food Noosa will present a European-style harvest picnic at Cooroy, showcasing the best of local produce on Sunday, June 1.
Over eight Slow Food members will produce regional delights for picnic guests to purchase and enjoy in the sunny rural setting of Quest College.
The Harvest Picnic is a European tradition where the rural villages celebrate local produce. “We will create Italian, Greek, French, Swiss and Middle Eastern dishes using our Noosa regional produce,” said Daniel Mosedale, Slow Food leader convivium president.
Entertainment will be provided by Caribbean steel band Pandanus, to put a smile on everyone’s face.
For the kids, Slow Food has themed the event the United Nations Year of the Potato. Children will be able to taste test, learn to make jacket baked stuffed potatoes, compete in potato spoon races and make creative potato people. Farm culture teacher Leonie Shanahan will also demonstrate how to make fun scarecrows.
All proceeds from the harvest picnic will save funds for the Slow Food Kitchen Garden project at Peregian Community College.
Slow Food asks guests to car pool as there is limited space in the grounds.
“Everyone is welcome, there is something for the whole family.”
