I live on the Merri Creek, in the inner northern suburbs of the city of Melbourne. Most days I cross the creek, or at least glimpse its waters from afar. I look for changes in the water level, in the clarity, in the speed of the flow.
In the spring of 2015, Food Studio travelled to Melbourne to explore Merri Creek and its long and compelling food growing history. During the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival 2015, we teamed up with Harding Street Garden, CERES, local food hero Matt Wilkinson and our guests to contemplate the food we eat and how it is produced.
Cecilie Dawes, the founder of Food Studio, was interviewed by the Field Guide on the occasion of the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival 2015. Read about how Food Studio came to be and our plans for what's to come!
