Slow Food Noosa are inviting anyone interested in feasting on local food and fascinating history to join them for an autumn outing to Old Witta School.
The foodies will be hitting the road and heading to the hills to graze on a three-course long table lunch prepared by Rickys River Bar & Restaurant and Wood Fire Grill Executive Chef, Braden White.
The venue is home to one of the region’s first schools and a historic cemetery that contains an interesting insight into the previous lives and deaths of this small community, including headstones of soldiers from World War One.
Local historian Donald Greenfield will be on hand to provide an insight into the town, which was settled in the 1800s.
Slow Food Noosa Inc President Erika Hackett said it would make a nice change to visit an area that was rich in local history.
“While the long lunch will feature local food prepared by one of Noosa’s best chefs, it will also be a chance to immerse ourselves in the rich history of another time,” she said. “We always strive to provide a fun experience while celebrating our local flavours.
“Guests can enjoy the cool autumn weather and even partake in some bocce and badminton - it promises to be a fun day for all. We like to put the ‘fun’ into fundraising.”
Money raised from the event will go towards Slow Food Noosa’s kitchen garden program, sensory garden and other initiatives hosted by the organisation.
