Saturday 6 April

Eilish is an incredibly passionate foodie who we have come to love. This class is about offering an educational and inspiring evening through creativity and conversation surrounding seasonal eating. It is acknowledging and talking about where our food comes from and the part we can play.

Eilish has recently launched her own business, The What If Society, and with it a studio. Everything she offers is made by her for you. All within her circle. 

It's a food focussed cooperative, working together with local suppliers to live and educate each other on full circle living, taking from the source and returning to the source. With its main focus being zero waste.

Eilish will be joined by Phil Lavers, farmer and owner of Moonacres Farm, and they will share their experience and thoughts on sustainable farming, seasonal eating and the importance of healthy living soil to our environment.

Guests will then join Eilish around the bench to cook produce harvested from Moonacres farm and other local sustainable farmers.

 

Eilish Maloney

Born and bred in the heart of the Southern Highlands, Eilish’s passion and natural culinary skills surfaced early whilst working at Onesta Cucina, when just 17, where she completed her apprenticeship. She then took to city life and worked at one hatted restaurant Nomad in Surry Hills, Sydney. After 18 months at Nomad, Eilish took the plunge and purchased a one way ticket, packed her bags and set off on a solo trip around the globe, travelling through South East Asia and Europe.

Settling in London for the next 24 months, Eilish began working for the two-Michelin-starred restaurant The Ledbury, which is ranked one of the best in the world. Owned and run by a fellow Australian Brett Graham.

From London, Eilish went on to work at a pop-up one-star restaurant in South Africa, a two star restaurant in Sweden and cooked countless meals for new friends all over that side of the globe. Returning home to Australia in 2017, Eilish set her sights on fish and joined the team at Saint Peter Paddington under the watchful eye of Joshua Niland. Whilst juggling her life in Sydney, Eilish returned home to the Southern Highlands to do various pop ups; launching a summer series event based in Kangaroo Valley showcasing the local produce and talent in the region.

The conversation starts at 4pm and concludes with a dinner cooked with Eilish at 7pm.
