Description

The launch of a new 42 ACRES series in collaboration with experiential culinary studio and botanical apothecary Mama Xanadu.

SAVE THE LAUNCH DATE: Thursday 14th September

Mama Xanadu’s anthropological research of ingredients and love of mythology & folklore will take you on a culinary odyssey. A playful understanding of taste and knowledge of plant remedies bring an alchemical perspective to dishes that direct nature’s medicine cabinet to the table. Food is a storytelling medium by which to spin tales of old wives’ superstition & magic, herbal medicine and ancient wisdom.

Our collaboration will take you far beyond knowing just the origins of what is on your plate.

  • – a plant identification workshop where you will get to know some edible and medicinal plants that grow in your neighbourhood
  • - flower elixirs and herbal tinctures
  • – a three-course sit-down meal with foraged vinegars, oils, salt blends and living plants to incorporate into your food
  • – Mama Xanadu’s remedy bag with a flower essence blend, herbal tea & Kitchen Alchemy booklet containing recipes for herbal preparations, foraging tips and plant stories
