Event:
A Nature Conservation Council Fundraiser
[ADVERT]The Forgotten Food Celebration is all about what Joni Mitchell asks for in Big Yellow Taxi: 'Give me spots on my apples, but leave me the birds and the bees, please!'

The Nature Conservation Council has teamed up with legendary chef Luke Mangan and sustainability-promoting chef Jared Ingersoll to organise a fundraiser in the form of a three-course dinner with matching wines, to be held at the Hilton's Glass Brasserie on Monday, November 18.


While Mangan will put together the unique menu, Ingersoll will play host on the night. All produce will be sourced from Food Connect, who offer 'local, seasonal and ecological food direct from your farmer', and Feather and Bone, who sell sustainably raised meat. There won't be any of the processed, packaged, mass-produced fare commonly found in modern supermarkets.

Tickets are $160 per head, or $140 each for groups of six or more. Proceeds will go to the Nature Conservation Council, which represents over 120 community environmentally-active groups in New South Wales. Its focus is conserving biodiversity, protecting unique ecosystems and maintaining air, land and water quality.
