It seems that Lismore Base isn’t the only hospital whose workers would like to park their cars for free while they work.

If you went to last year’s Sample Food Festival lunch, then you’ll probably be buying tickets to this year’s Sample Food Festival lunch, that will be held at the Byron Bay Golf Club.

Sarah Swan of 100 Mile Table is ensconced at the club, and she has invited chef and author Paul West – River Cottage, local author and media personality Belinda Jeffery and multi-award-winning now Brisbane-based chef Ben Williamson to collaborate on a meal to remember.

The lunch will feature an exceptional grazing-style menu with dessert bar by Belinda Jeffery. Here at The Echo we don’t know what she’ll serve on the day, but if you have a look at her website belindajeffery.com.au you can see a number of her recipes, such as Butterscotch pears with fresh pear ice-cream.

Sponsors Stone & Wood will be offering handcrafted beer and wines from sponsors The Cellar bottleshop in Byron will be matched with the menu.

More info: Byron Byron Golf Club on Friday 1 September from 12pm. Tickets are $130 + booking fee and available exclusively through Eventbrite (search ‘Salt of the Earth’). Admission, drinks and the meal are all inclusive.
