Local bush food celebrated at a Broome festival

Date posted: 17 December 2013

People in Broome recently came together to celebrate local bush food as part of Terra Madre Day, an annual festival of local, slow foods with hundreds of events held in locations around the world.

Mangrove myrtle herbs, kangaroo tail, and pindan walnut damper were just some of the bush foods on display at the festival. Broome organiser Pat Mamanyjun Torres says she was keen to include her traditional Aboriginal bush food as a part of the international event. 'Slow food is about celebrating families, relationships, cooking, sitting down and having a good time. This is all about wholesome food and doing it the old way.'
