Slow Food Melbourne, the local body championing the slow food movement in Melbourne and responsible for the accredited Victorian Farmers' Markets, is bringing us the inaugural Slow Fish Festival. Spotswood will host a seafood market serving snacks like skewered yabbies and scallop pies, as well as a number of stalls selling fresh, local produce such as sea urchin and abalone.
There will also be educational talks throughout the day covering the modern-day challenges and triumphs of our local aquaculture. You'll be able to hear from multi-generational fisherfolk, as well as a local forager on identifying edible seaweeds.
Cooking demonstrations, hosted by Rosa Mitchell, will also feature tips and favourite dishes by some of Melbourne's leading chefs such as Frank Camorra (Movida), Matt Wilkinson (Pope Joan) and Thi Le (Anchovy), among many others.
As per all Slow Food Melbourne events, it's a gold coin donation for entry.
