Autumn is the the time many chefs look forward to the most. Well I know its my favourite time of year. Mushrooms come out, game hits the menus and a whole world of wild food and edible leaves comes into play.
Join us for a mushroom foraging tour in the Southern Highlands. You will learn about edible mushrooms, how to select/forage for them, prepare them and then eat them (washed down with a little local vino of course) Along with other wild leaves and whatever comes across our path in the state forest of Belanglo.
Schedule for the day:
- 7am Sunday departure from Workshop HQ.
- Travel along M5, to Belanglo state forest in bus to arrive approx 8:45am
- 9am-10:30 Mushroom picking after brief intro.
- 10:30-11:15 Brunch and wine.
- Vineyard visit on way home
- 2:30-3pm Return to Shop
ABOUT AAREON TEECE FROM STUDIO NEON
Studio Neon is run by chef Aaron Teece. His philosophy is simple: bring like-minded people together in an inspired yet relaxed setting, to share food, wine and to create a memorable experience. Aaron spent his childhood in the Northern Rivers near Byron Bay and spent the formative years of his career in Brisbane. But then London called and he traveled to expand his knowledge and build his career.
He worked as a Sous Chef at Harvey Nichols' 5th Floor Restaurant and later worked as a private chef. Aaron cooked for the likes of Lady Margaret Thatcher, Kate Moss and Keira Knightly and was lucky enough to cook for the Queen on a few occasions. But, as they say, there's no place like home, so he returned to Australia. He has since been seen in some of Sydney's finest establishments including Astral, Sean's Kitchen, EST., Felix and Manly Pavillion while in the process of searching for a venue that he could make his own.
