Family Friendly Tasting the World in Charles Sturt Cooking Workshops | Tasting Australia | 4 & 11 May 2024

Four family-friendly cooking workshops in this year’s Tasting Australia program will share family histories on a plate from around the world.

The workshops will give people an opportunity to eat and learn some treasured family recipes, culture and migration stories from the Ugandan, Vietnamese, Italian and Indian communities that have settled in the West of Adelaide. Children’s tickets are priced at $25 and adults at $50, making it one of the most affordable and culturally diverse events in this year’s Tasting Australia program. 

Led by Charles Sturt locals with a passion for cooking and culture, the four workshops to be hosted at Nguntungka West Lakes aim to share more than food. The presenters will share food, migration stories and teach people how to make some precious family recipes brought with them to South Australia from their homelands. These are more than family recipes. They are family histories on a plate and real food made with love. After learning how to make the dish, participants will sit down to enjoy a completed dish with their hosts and receive a take-home recipe card.
