Sydney MAD Monday | Indigenous Foodways

16 April 2018

Noting an increasing awareness and demand for indigenous Australian ingredients, we dedicated this Sydney MAD Monday event to Indigenous Foodways. We gathered for a conversation to discuss what roles chefs, farmers, and indigenous communities can play in shaping the ways this demand is met by contributing to a more sustainable and just future.
