Way back in April I attended MADSYD – a day of talks about the future of food. Held in the Joan Sutherland Theatre at the Sydney Opera house, the day featured talks by some of the biggest names in restaurants both local and international. Chefs such as Rene Redzepi, David Chang, Neil Perry, Massimo Bottura, Kylie Kwong, Clayton Donovan, Peter Gilmore among others. Talks also by Chido Govera of The Future of Hope Foundation, social researcher Rebecca Huntley, Gayle Quarmby from OutBack Pride.


It was a great afternoon hearing about where some of the top chefs think food is headed in the future. One thing I took away in particular is that we really need to look at the food sources that are indigenous to this wonderful country. Rene Redzepi and David Chang were both taken aback at how little of our native plant and animal produce we actually use.

So it is time to go out and try what grows best here and add it to our food repetoire. You can see more of the day and other MAD events at http://www.madfood.co.
