Eat my Words – Taste and Tales of Tropical Cooks

Food combined with storytelling is an inviting concept (perhaps best not done at exactly the same time) but eating good food while being part of the story is better yet.

Eat My Words is a dinner being held as part of Darwin Fringe, where a diverse bunch of cooks use all-local ingredients while telling their own stories of cooking.

Organised by Darwin’s local produce gurus GULP, the group has devised a brilliant ticketing system, where guests who offer their own musical or dishwashing talents get a reduced price, while those with dough have the option of sponsoring a seat for someone who can’t afford it.

“We’re experimenting with the fact that people will just go along to a normal food event – in this dinner everyone is engaged,” says organiser Emma Lupin.

The dinner will be held in the Mulch Pit community garden, and features food from West Papua, the Philippines, Southern India and the Top End.

“It grows as more people get involved,” says Lupin.

Thu 13 Jul | 6-8.30pm | Mulch Pit Community Garden
