Tomato Passata Workshop:
Join @Melbourne Food Hub on Sunday 24th March 2019 for a 4 hour Tomato Passata Making Workshop. The seasons are changing and it’s time to preserve a splash of summer in a bottle for those cold winter months.
Tomato Day has long been a celebration of seasonal eating and bringing our community together. Melbourne Food Hub would like to honour this tradition with you all. Come and learn all there is to know about preserving tomatoes and leave with a skill for life.
In this 4 hour workshop, you will learn how to make a traditional tomato passata – each participant will receive 10kg worth of tomatoes to transform – enjoy a delicious seasonal lunch with local wine and take home your preserved bottles to enjoy over winter. The workshop is the first step in setting up the fully functioning community kitchen. This class is full of all the good things in life: eating, drinking and preserving! The workshop will be facilitated by the vibrant Betty Vassilou who has a presence in the community, teaching for many years at Westgarth primary as well as a being a regular stall holder at weekend Melbourne Farmers Markets.
The workshop will begin during @Alphington Farmers Markets so come early to pick up your local and sustainable groceries direct from our wonderful #Victorian #producers.
