Job creation and job destruction has become the norm within our new age labour market. Innovation continues to play an integral part of how our society operates. Getting to this point of constant innovation has meant a number of jobs – which at first instance were regarded as irreplaceable – eventually becoming obsolete. This trend doesn’t discriminate, affecting both ‘blue’ and ‘white’ collar workers.
There is one job which has stayed true and relevant from century to century – the farmer. There is a certain touch, finesse and specialised knowledge that sets a farmer apart from any other career. For instance, there is a technique of planting and harvesting crops according to the phases of the moon. The natural rhythm of the sun, moon and stars influence every aspect of plant growth.
To celebrate the best of the winter crop offerings, The Grain Store has teamed up with CERES Fair Food to invite food lovers to a Full Moon Dinner this coming Saturday. The menu is designed and executed by Ingo Meissner, Executive Chef of The Grain Store; taking guests on a two course dinner (including matching wines) showcasing the best of the seasonal crop, including from The Grain Store’s very own rooftop vegetable garden.
Guest will first enjoy canapes and mulled wine before being taken on a tour of rooftop vegetable garden. While enjoying the two courses and sweet treats James Sprunt, a farmer practicing in full moon harvesting, will give a quick talk about this ancient practice. Guest are sure to be dazzled by the fresh dishes, wine and culinary learning.
The Full Moon Dinner at The Grain Store will be held on Saturday 12 July at 6:00pm. The meal includes a two course dinner with matched wines including mulled wine and canapes to start off. This unique event is priced at $85 per person.
