Why is this so exciting? I love everything that Karen & Honey (who are the brains behind Will Work for Food) are about in regards to our food systems in Australia, and I have been following them for a long time. The same goes with both Loop Growers and The Design Files too! So it is an honour to have participated in this article.
I have come to an age where I have begun to think more seriously about my food and consumption of it.
Whilst I am not strictly vegetarian, in our house we consume less meat, and most of our food I like to buy from Charlie's Fruit Market or the weekend farmers markets.
The dinner was to showcase not only the heritage breed, pasture raised chickens, but also other local produce, pork and wines.
I can't seem to put together how the whole thing made me feel - but if you are really interested, Shirley from Hand Sourced put together a VERY good article about the dinner and the chicken industry.. that I urge you to read.
