One of Australia's most renowned Instagrammers, Lauren Bath, will lead a macadamia lovers Instameet at Sample Food Festival this year. Kicking off at 9am in the centre ring (under the marquee) at Bangalow Showgrounds, macadamia fans and Instagram users will have the opportunity to snap, crack and taste our beloved local nut while meeting other local and visiting Instagrammers.
Co-hosting the Instameet with Lauren will be former Northern Rivers local Jewels Lynch aka @Jewelszee. A self taught photographer, Jewel's talent and good vibes come through in her inspiring images on Instagram and we are thrilled to have her join the fun!
The Instameet will also launch a photo competition, offering a delicious macadamia hamper to the person who Instagrams the best macadamia inspired photo from Sample Food Festival 2017 and shares it on the day using the hashtag #AusMacadamias.
Macadamias will feature throughout the festival weekend in both cooking demonstrations and a wide range of restaurant dishes. The annual festival has become one of the region's landmark events and features local produce used in innovative ways by some of Australia and the region's top chefs.
Renowned local restaurant Harvest will offer a $10 tasting plate that combines glazed pork with the native nut to create ‘charred kelp glazed pork with pickles, fermented grains, macadamia and crispy onion’ and Organic Passion vegan chef, Anthea Amore, will offer a vegan and gluten free ‘crumbed local tempeh with spicy macadamia satay with green papaya salad’.
Both the cooking demonstration stage and the celebrity cooking stage will showcase the best produce from the Northern Rivers region, with local macadamias sure to steal the show as they take centre stage in their original home.
There are sure to be many photo opportunities to keep instragrammers busy!
Saturday 2nd September
