Friday night’s Local Produce Dinner at the Bucket List Bondi beautifully showcased some of the best produce the area has to offer. It was one of a series dinners that aims to put the spotlight back on where our food is sourced and the quality of our local farmers and producers with Head Chef Tom Walton creating a wholesome three course share-style meal.
The star of the evening was the spit roast Melanda Park free range pork served with organic winter vegetables, cauliflower puree and crushed apple sauce. Diners also enjoyed Pepe Saya cultured butter with beetroot and Willowbrae goats curd and home-made bread. And dessert was a scrumptious Koshi Hikari rice pudding using Randell Organic Rice with honeycomb, rhubarb and orange.
The homely, casual dinner welcomed diners who appreciated the freshness of locally sourced produce. “When produce is not from Coles or Woothworths it just tastes better. It tends to have a notably richer flavour” Marni, student at Sydney University. Many others loved the simplicity of the food and trying unusual vegetables varieties, like the Jerusalem artichokes for the first time.
The local produce dinners are a series of events that demonstrate the need for local farmers and producers to be better connected with chefs and restaurateurs. By chefs sourcing their produce direct from the local farmers and producers they’re able to have greater transparency over quality, and farmers and producers are able to receive fairer prices for their goods. This will happen online in the coming weeks with the launch of Food Orbit, an online market place for chefs and farmers and producers to buy and sell quality local produce.
