THE AGRARIAN EXPERIENCE
led by Rodney Dunn, Co-Founder of The Agrarian Kitchen


Cost: AU$440.00 per person / Duration: 9.00am to 4.00pm  / Guests per class:  12

Location:  The Agrarian Kitchen, 11A The Avenue, New Norfolk, Tasmania, 7140, Australia

Inclusions:  Tour of The Agrarian Kitchen's garden / Hands-on cooking experience / Lunch matched with wine / Recipes

The Agrarian Experience is a celebration of the seasons. You may not realise that each Agrarian Experience class is at least 6 months in the making.  Selecting seeds, planting, watering and nurturing the plants to maturity to be harvested on the day of the class. To ensure that you harvest and cook with the freshest and ripest produce possible from our garden each day’s menu is decided upon the day before by Rodney after a stroll through the garden.

This cooking experience is suitable for all - those who are qualified chefs, home cooks, those who do not usually cook or just for those who would like to experience our agrarian way of living. The day includes foraging, harvesting, cooking, learning, eating and drinking. 

The day begins with all of us in the class foraging in the garden for the ripest fruit and vegetables.  What cannot be harvested from our garden is sourced from local Tasmanian producers. The extensive tour also gives plenty of opportunity to discuss growing plants and The Agrarian Kitchen’s own gardening philosophy.

Once harvesting is complete we continue in the kitchen preparing and cooking together a seasonal feast. The cooking of dishes are shared amongst the group and although you will not individually cook every single dish on the menu Rodney will ensure that you are taught the skills and techniques of each dish. As class sizes are an intimate number of 12 this is your opportunity to ask questions and to learn as much as you would like - you get as much out of the experience as you put in.

The day will culminate with lunch including premium Tasmanian wines.

The Vegetarian Experience is all about the celebration of vegetables. This class is run through the peak season for the garden to ensure there is an abundance of fruit and vegetables to cook with and is suitable for meat-eaters as well. Indeed the true test of good vegetarian food is when you don’t even notice meat is missing. 

The day begins with all of us in the class foraging in the garden for the ripest fruit and vegetables. The garden tour will give plenty of opportunity to discuss growing plants and seeing older heirloom varieties of vegetables that will add something special to your own garden. Once harvesting is complete we continue in the kitchen preparing and cooking together a seasonal feast that will elevate the vegetables to stars in their own right. The cooking of dishes are shared amongst the group and although you will not individually cook every single dish on the menu Rodney will ensure that you are taught the skills and techniques of each dish. As class sizes are an intimate number of 12 this is your opportunity to ask questions and to learn as much as you would like - you get as much out of the experience as you put in.

We are very excited to host Adam James of Rough Rice for a very special Fermentation Masterclass. In 2017, Adam went on a 3-month fermentation world tour, thanks to a Churchill Fellowship, which took him to Denmark, Italy, France, Georgia, China, South Korea and Japan. During this trip Adam researched ancient (and new) techniques in vegetable and legume fermentation.

Adam first became interested in fermentation whilst travelling through Japan 12 years ago. The exact moment was in sake bar Yoramu in Kyoto where he was served a plain cube of fresh tofu that was topped with an unassuming red paste. The paste was kanzuri and it blew his mind. From that moment on he started reading, researching and experimenting in all things fermented. He has also returned to Japan every year to increase his knowledge of Japanese preservation.

During this 2-day workshop we will delve into a selection of traditional fermented pickles from around the world, nukadoko, vinegars, kombucha, water + milk kefir, koji, miso, shoyu, fermented hot sauce (and plenty more) all using seasonal ingredients picked from the garden..
