Celebrating seasonality & regionality

In her much-anticipated sequel, co-authored with Christine Sharp, Eat Local: Food, Farming and Conversation in the Scenic Rim, local produce champion, chef and author Brenda Fawdon shines a light on the abundance of this Queensland region.

With a collection of wholesome recipes and stories from the Scenic Rim’s best producers, the book, and this down-to-earth demonstration serve up a kind of love letter to the ingredients and people that make this region a true foodie heaven.

Join Brenda on this journey into a locavore’s lifestyle celebrating seasonality and regionality, featuring lashings of passion from a life dedicated to good food.
