UniSA 2021 National Reconciliation Week

Dominic and Andrew had an amazing experience recently with UniSA for their 2021 national reconciliation week event held on campus in that light. The theme was:

“More than a word. Reconciliation takes action.”

The Welcome to Country & Smoking Ceremony was presented by Senior Kaurna Man Mickey O’Brien

Dom and Andrew whipped up a couple of really simple and super tasty dishes as a cooking demo.

First, “freshly Ironed” fish (that’s right, Ironed with an iron and baking paper on an ironing board  –  we got a few laughs, and at least one request to do a shirt !!!!) served with a luscious orange, ginger and lemon myrtle butter sauce.

What a great fit, exactly what Edible Reconciliation is all about as food is such a tasty tangible way to share culture and foster understanding. It was a delight to take part in a welcome to country and first be “cleansed’ with all the attendees, then we followed up with an incredible show and tell –  taste and smell session.

We set out about 15 fresh and dried native ingredients, and preceded to explain some basic information about each of the ingredients and where they come from, some of their traditional uses and also some of the uses now in a modern Australian cuisine, with everyone crushing, smelling tasting – lots of wows, oohs and ahhs  – there is nothing like engaging all the senses.

Dom of course had some great insights  as to some of the cultural significance and even medicinal uses of some items, and also elaborated on his wonderful holistic healing & farming approach and his aims to engage with many young Aboriginal people in the future to help them reconnect to the land and their culture through their own commercially viable native food farms.

Finally all the guests were treated to some superb edible reconciliation catering items like pumpkin ginger and lemon myrtle pasties, Emu saltbush and sun dried tomato pies, kangaroo pepperoni and more.

All of the ingredients, products  and cookbook mentioned here and in the video are available at Creative Native Foods.
