River Cottage was a raging success!

The team, and many volunteers, helped pull the event together. The local luncheon involved four courses cooked by Rahamim, The Wholefood Co-op and two well-known restaurants - Al Dente and 9inety 2wo. Guests dined on wood-fired pizza, pumpkin pies, a pork larb and a rice pudding with baked local quinces. Paul West, the star of the television show ‘River Cottage Australia’ and author of the cookbook of the same name, was the drawcard of the day and spent three hours chatting to guests about growing food, preparing healthy meals and his experience on his farm in Tilba, on the far South Coast of NSW.Although conditions were cold that day, guests spent time in the Community Gardens and the expansive verandah of Logan Brae House before enjoying lunch in the historic mansion. Paul also managed to fit in a visit to several local restaurants, The Wholefood Co-op and was generously accommodated by Bishop’s Court Estate.
