Native Food with Currie Country(c)
Native Foods with Currie Country (C)
'Officially' launched May 2021 after joining forces with Pocket Herbs in February 2020.
This is a very exciting time with the aim to provide a deeply enriching experience for Currie Country's brilliant 'alchemist' chef creator community of Tweed, Byron, and Gold Coast.
The focus is on creativity, history, Aboriginal lores and systems to influence what chefs bring to their diner, and the Australian palate, combined with principles to create a thriving cooperative community between Aboriginal people, local communities, and curated dining experience which speaks to nuance and beauty of Native Foods.
'We are creating a knowledge base that will enhance the use of Native Foods and bring a new awareness of texture and taste to tables'.
We are setting the standard with ethical practices, between First Nations foraging rights, paying 'black tax' to other sovereign nations in distribution, and elevating hand foraged food for the exquisite dining experience.
Currie Country is leading educating, and inspiring our local Chefs to ensure Aboriginal knowledge systems are at the heart of understanding, practice principles.
