Sunday August 7 will mark the inaugural Meat Your Maker (MYM) festival, a one-day ‘fleshtival’ of artisanal, ethical and sustainable food with a focus on the farmers, hunters, gatherers, butchers and cooks who work with produce with respect and integrity.
Bottle Shop Concepts, the team behind renowned wine events Pinot Palooza and Game of Rhones, will be switching their focus from wine to meat. MYM will bring producers and consumers together to help overcome the disconnect between the meat we eat and the animals they come from.
Food lovers will be able to attend meat and dairy tastings, panel discussions, and butchery and cooking demonstrations, with some of Australia’s best producers and chefs.
MYM is about celebrating real food heroes - the farmers and artisans - and fostering a better understanding of the challenges they face. The day is also about helping educate people on how they can make a real difference by providing them with the knowledge and practical tools on how they can support our farmers.
MEAT YOUR MAKER: Sunday 7th August, 11am till 6pm. Abbotsford Convent, 16 St Heliers St, Abbotsford. VIC
