We attended the Bush Tucker Workshop on Sunday with indigenous chef Dale Chapman at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha.

We were joined by Cheryl and James who were lucky enough to attend a couple more sessions after the first, the first session being Finger Food using Australian Native Seeds and Berries as the ingredients in Relishes and Cooking Sauces, there was also a Caramelized Popcorn with Wattle Seeds. Lemon Myrtle Cookies, leaving us with a lot of food for thought.

We would have loved to stay for the next 2 sessions being with Fish & Chicken but had a prior Luncheon engagement. I look forward to attending another session when time permits.
