Southern Mallee Producers Dinner

Sat 4th May 2024 at 6:30 PM


The first Southern Mallee Producers Dinner in 2022 was a sold-out success. Now it’s time to do it all again. The Lameroo Forward Inc committee has gathered its strength and wild enthusiasm for another evening to remember, this time led by a cosmopolitan cook and artist duo.

International cookbook author Robert Carmack recently moved to the Mallee after 10 years in Cambodia, with previous decades living in Sydney, France and America. He will craft Farm Gate to Fire Pit – an exciting salute to Mallee culture, customs and victuals, beginning with snacks warming around the fire and followed by a sit-down dinner of foods with French flair. Expect the unexpected!

Partner Morrison Polkinghorne – Tasmania-born and Alice Springs-bred) is set to bring his artistic background to play in designing the evening’s unique decorations and table settings. The duo collaborated on award-winning The Burma Cookbook, with Carmack also the creator of a further five recipe collections.

Local farmers and enthusiastic beer connoisseurs are planning another unique beverage from a local grain that may even outperform the highly rated Dry and Dusty from 2022. And local gin maker Mallee Spirits, a two-time bronze medallist at the Tasting Australia Spirit Awards, will have locally made beverages available to purchase during the evening.

To round out your Mallee experience organisers are also planning a tag-along four-wheel-drive tour of local parks on Saturday afternoon, with Sunday breakfast on offer at a local farm. Please email organisers for more information.
