A Paul West - The Edible Garden
Time & Location
About The Event
Join us for a special foodie evening with chef, author and passionate gardener Paul West, of River Cottage Australia fame, as we celebrate the release of The Edible Garden.
Included is a 45-minute tour of the Pocket City Farms' veggie garden with Paul & local guru Michael "Zag" Zagoridis (valued at $12). Together they will show you what's growing & discuss how to get the best out of small garden spaces, answering your questions along the way.
They will then talk about The Edible Garden and Paul's foodie journey in the Pavilion.
You can also join Paul for an optional dinner cooked up by Acre Eatery after the discussion too! Click on 'Register Now' for all your ticket options. (Dinner tickets must be purchased by C.O.B. Wednesday 25 September.)
About the Book
The Edible Garden Cookbook & Growing Guide is a book about growing food wherever you may be and however much space you have. It is about cooking simply with fresh, seasonal produce and about celebrating life through sharing food with friends and family and the community around you.
The book has lots of practical gardening advice, with information on how to set up a garden using a sunny windowsill, courtyard, backyard and even no yard! There are step-by-step guides to building a no-dig garden and the best way to compost depending on the space you have, as well as an A-Z guide for growing the most popular veg.
Paul then shares more than 70 simple, produce-driven recipes that are bursting with freshness and flavour. And finally, Paul looks at how to develop relationships around food and shares some wonderful ideas for various events, from throwing a pickle party and hosting a harvest festival to building a mud-brick oven in your backyard and inviting your neighbours over for a wood-fired pizza night!
The Edible Garden Cookbook & Growing Guide is for everyone who is interested in food and community. It will inspire and give you confidence to try your hand at growing your own produce and making more of your own food, and help you to find real meaning in everyday life.
