Passata-Day-Squareish

We’re celebrating the harvest on January 25th with a Passata Day in Sydney – would you like to come? 

passata day 500

A special Milkwood Social event especially for our network – come on down, lovelies…

Firstly in the morning we will start with a hands-on, rolling session of making passata (crushed, preserved tomatoes) – the squishing, the bottling and the boiling. Wearing red might be a good idea.

Next we’ll make fresh pasta for lunch, to go alongside a fresher-than-fresh passata sauce, summer herbs and other simple pleasures.

Then, we’ll all sit down and share a meal in the shade, to celebrate summer and the goodness of the tomato.

Lunch will be followed by more passata making, salsa-meets-dancehall-meets-reggae tunes, and virgin (or otherwise) marys.

At the end, we’ll send you home with a couple of bottles of freshly made organic passata, new friends, and new skills.

Sound good? We’d love to see you there. Details and tickets here...

    You know, there’s an old saying in the US, “I’d give my left nut to…”. Well at 64 yrs old, I can make do with one so that saying is appropriate for this instance. I’d give my left nut to be there. Someday I’ll be able to visit you guys.

    Sounds a great day. Hope everyone has a ball. !!

  • Who would have ever thought tomatoes would be cause of such accolade and celebration? Can’t make Passata Day unfortunately, but I will be attending the Tomato Festival at Adelaide Botanic Gardens in February.

    Tomatoes. Seriously the best fruit.
