The Rainforest Bounty Slow Food Experience will awaken your senses with a gentle stroll through the native fruit orchards and gardens to harvest seasonal ingredients. A hands-on cooking class will show you how to bring out the unique flavours of native rainforest fruits and the day culminates in a sumptuous lunch to share the results of our labours.
This is an authentic “paddock to plate” experience only 15 minutes from Malanda on Queensland’s Atherton Tableland, Australia. The cooking lesson incorporates seasonal rainforest fruits and Rainforest Bounty gourmet condiments along with heirloom varieties of fruit and vegetables in its recipes. We also source ingredients from local organic farmers, fishermen, gardeners and artisanal producers.
Cooking classes are held in the spacious modern farm house with views of Queensland’s two highest mountains. Participants are guided through the recipes by Geraldine who developed her knowledge of the ingredients and cooking processes from traditional cooks in Asia and the Pacific. Geraldine incorporates this artisanal knowledge into a fusion cooking style using Australian native fruits with local organic meats, wild caught local seafoods and traditional ingredients.
There are six themes available – Lao/Thai, Indonesian, Malaysian, Vietnamese, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean. Further information and bookings can be made via the website www.rainforestbounty.com.au or by calling Geraldine on 07 4096 8026.
