Chutney, Chooks and Champions: Stories from the Show.
On exhibition from 8 May 2018


Chutney, Chooks & Champions


As part of the Chutney, Chooks and Champions exhibition and celebration of all things 'Showy', the Museum is sponsoring a new category in the Pavilion at the Murwillumbah Show; fermentation. To help you prepare entries for this new category, we're running a series of fermentation demonstrations at the Museum:


Sauerkraut
Saturday 23 June, 10am - 12noon
Tweed Regional Museum Murwillumbah

Want to know why all the hipsters are fermenting their own food? Ever wanted to make your own sauerkraut? Well, join us in the Museum courtyard as we find out how. Humans have been fermenting foods for thousands of years. In this demonstration you will learn all about the fermentation process and how easy it is to do it yourself at home. Learn all the skills needed to enter your sauerkraut into the new fermentation category that the Museum is sponsoring at the Show.
This is a free event, but numbers are strictly limited. Booking is essential, on (02) 6670 2493 or trm@tweed.nsw.gov.au

Kimchi is a traditional Korean dish made of fermented vegetables and spices and is full of the healthy bacteria that is produced from the fermentation process. Not only is it delicious and good for you, it's easy to make at home! Join us in the Museum courtyard for this demonstration that will give you the skills to make kimchi at home and enter it into the new fermentation category that the Museum is sponsoring at the Show.
This is a free event, but numbers are strictly limited. Booking is essential, on (02) 6670 2493 or trm@tweed.nsw.gov.au

About our presenter:

Our workshops are presented by Jean Martinez, a Wholefoods Chef and Cooking Teacher. Based in our local area, Jean can often be found travelling around regional NSW and interstate teaching sourdough breadmaking, wild fermentation, wholefood baking and many other wholefoods-based cooking classes. Jean is a proud co-founder of the Whole and Natural Foods Chef Program, based in Perth, WA - a program that was founded to expand the skills-base of wholefood chefs in the Australian industry.
When not teaching, Jean can be found tending to her flock of motley chooks or her wild veggie patch and fruit trees, and writing articles about food and sustainable living for the Tweed Valley Weekly.
