Bellingen ‘Food Photographer’ Stuart Scott has been scouring our region for the stunning and the quirky and will be generously sharing his most exquisite foodie shots over the next 2 months. We caught up with Stuart a while back- well worth a read.
The dedicated growers from Bellinger River Organics
will be discussing all things ‘ginger and garlic’, while Brierfield cattle farmer Alan Petersen will take us through natural, healthy practices and trends in the beef food chain. Well-known Naturopath and self-confessed “herb nerd” Reece Carter
chose the Bellingen Shire to photograph his book “The Garden Apothecary”
– Homemade Recipes for Everyday Ailments”
(published by Harlequin).
We will chat with Reece and share his ‘recipe for health’.
And what would a ‘Season of Food’ be without some recipes for our scrapbook? Many of our local chefs, from our most iconic restaurants, share their beloved secrets, including Mitch and Neil from Popla
, Denise and Steve of Anchor’s Wharf Cafe
fame and Vicki Bridgstock, whose ‘shared international plates’ are making a stir at Little Red Kitchen
each Wednesday evening. Not to be outdone, some of our local ‘true country cooks’ are prepared to share more than just their wisdom.

We will gather essential tips on improving soils, raising goats, winemaking and beekeeping for honey. Peter Wilkins will enlighten us about ‘Syntropic Farming’, where the aim is to reduce external inputs over time, while producing an abundance of horticultural, orchard, timber and other crops, with the added benefit of regenerating the soil in the process. You name it – ‘Season of Food’ has it. Grow local, shop local, create local, eat local. Book your table now!!
