Chefs are busy planning their menus, the farmers are busy planting their crops at Solum Farm and the band Tijuana Cartel are now locked in as the headline music act for this years Feast In The Field, the Clarence Valley’s signature food event for the annual Plunge Festival.
One of the co-ordinators, Mike Smith said “everything is falling into place nicely and we are on track to making this year’s event bigger and better than last years”.
“We started talking to our local chefs a few weeks ago to see what we could start growing for them and everything is now on its way. We also have a number of the boutique wine bars like ‘Uptown, ‘Backpackers’ and ‘Heart and Soul’ creating something special to serve with our meals on the day.
Owners of Yamba’s Leche Cafe, Clare Bourke and Zac Roberts will be the conductors of the ‘Symphony of Food’ on the day and will manage the food systems to ensure everything is timed to perfection to ensure maximum benefit for our guests.
We only have 150 tickets available for this years event and half have already sold.
The headline food act is internationally renowned Indigenous chef Clayton Donovan.
Mr Donovan who has his own food show with ABC TV series ‘Wild Kitchen’ brings this same loveable character to life and his award winning native cuisine to our event and we are very excited he accepted our invitation to return.
Feast In The Field is hosted by the Organic Matters Foundation at Solum Farm and will be staged on the 30th April from midday to 6pm.
Tickets are $150 and can be purchased through Sticky Tickets.
Harwood Hotel will be co-ordinating the buses from Iluka, Yamba and Maclean with the collection point being at the hotel. This year there will be no cars allowed at the venue except for the volunteers and disability users.
Harwood Hotel will also be hosting a band after the Feast In The Field has finished beginning at 6pm.
