WA’s first Food and Drink Symposium coming to Claremont

FADSFoodie event veteran Katrina Lane and Food Truck Rumble mastermind Ai-Ling Truong have teamed up to bring a new type of food event to WA – one based more on what comes out of your mouth than what you put in it.

A food and drink symposium – FADS, both an acronym for the event and a reference to fleeting food trends -will bring together farmers, producers, chefs, educators and consumers for a day long program of talks, panel discussions and workshops that will open conversations about the ethics and sustainability of the food industry on May 28.

“It’s about talking and listening and not just eating and drinking,” said Lane, whose experiences at similar food think-tank events inspired her to give life to FADS. “Terre Madre (the Slow Food movement’s biennial global symposium) was life changing for me, and seeing people come together and having conversations they didn’t think they’d have, and learning new things was really inspiring.”

Attendees can expect to hear from Ben Shewry of Australia’s Best Restaurant Attica, Victorian farming advocate Tammi Jonas, chefs Guy Jeffreys, Sam Ward, Joel Valvasori-Pereza, and farmer Warren Pensini, as well as enjoying morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.
