As many of you know we forage and hand collect a good selection of our produce at Studio NEON. This year we have teamed up with Diego Bonetto (The Weedy One) for a day of fun and education down in the state forests of NSW.
Departing Redfern at 7am, the tour will head south on the Hume Highway to the Southern Highlands, two and a half hours out of Sydney. Over the course of the morning, participants will learn how to identify edible weeds and use them in the kitchen or as natural remedies. Diego Bonetto from Wild Foods has nearly two decades experience collecting mushrooms in Italy and Australia and his workshops in the forest to harvest wild mushrooms are highly acclaimed by Australian chefs and hospitality industry.
Lunch in the pine forest will be prepared by us and we will show you a number different techniques to get the most out of your haul of mushrooms.
We will then be returning to Sydney by 3pm so you have plenty of time to wash and prepare your collected goods.
Price: $150.00 per person or two people for $250.00 so grab a friend and bring them along.
We look forward to running around in the forests with you.
