Find out how to gather and cook native ingredients
There’s been a rise in the use of traditional bush foods in Sydney restaurants and many people are incorporating native ingredients in their home cooking, too. So how do you know what native Australian foods to eat and how to prepare them? During NAIDOC Week you can join an Aboriginal guide at the Royal Botanic Gardens to understand more about gathering seasonal fruits, seeds, vegetables and other plants. The two-hour tour will include learning about traditional food prep, such as using a coolamon (a shallow vessel) to collect foods, and you’ll get to taste dishes prepared with native ingredients, such as finger limes, lemon myrtle, wattleseed and Warringal greens.
