Because I’m still on leave and jazzed on this food buzz I seem to be on at the moment, I decided to jump in the car and head to Esk for the Food Tales session run by the State Library of Queensland and the Queensland Writers Centre, two organisations close to my heart.
Each regional centre session was hosted by a food writer and basically created a lovely discussion about the group’s experience with food. I did not realise before attending, that each of us would have to share a food tale. Nervous as I was, I had a lovely time with the ladies (and one gentleman, who make himself scares after the scones and before the tale sharing portion of the event) of Esk. Some of their stories were funny and vivid and I got some great recipes I can’t wait to try!
The point of Food Tales is for people to logon to the website and share their food story and the website becomes a collaboration of recipes and stories and an experience for those who have a soft spot in their heart for food and cooking.
