The region’s only 100 per cent volunteer-run food co-operative, CO*OP Kulcha, celebrates a year of operation and co-operation this week.

To mark the occasion, a ‘food lovers’ degustation and a day of information, music and fine food is planned on Thursday May 29.

Kulchajam’s Techa Beaumont says five of the region’s finest chefs will create a five-course ‘100-mile’ degustation menu to showcase the region’s produce.

One-hundred-mile degustation

Anthea and Casper from Organic Passion Catering, Ronit Robbaz from Open Table Catering, Stream from True Nature Cuisine, Sufiyo of Raw EnerQI and Guy Simpson have donated their time to create a special plate from ingredients within 100 miles of Byron Bay.

The evening culminates in a gypsy jam featuring members of Rapskallion, The Link and The Sea Gypsies, and goes on into the night with DJ Mr Mantiki and the Mung Bean All Stars.

Pre-booking is essential, and tickets are available at www.kulchajam.org/coop or at the door (if still available). Kulchajam is located at 1 Acacia Street, Byron Arts & Industry Estate.
