On Wednesday evening, 20th July over 120 people gathered at 116 Bank St (Company of Giants venue) in Whangarei to celebrate local food and good company.
The event was organised by Sean and Rowan Stanley of the Whangarei Food Co-op. The cost of $30/person was an amazing bargain considering the quality (and quantity!) of the food, consisting of a large variety of dishes from Whangarei chefs showcasing our delicious local food!
During the banquet we heard presentations from growers, chefs, charities and local foodies as well as live music and skits. Clive also presented part of our vision for Local Food Northland.
The idea is that this becomes at least an annual (if not seasonal) event.
