This imaginative little gathering brings together two of Concrete Playground's favourite things: food and words. Forming part of the Bondi Feast programme, Eat Our Words will see a bunch of food lovers get together to tell you stories about the tasty morsels that have changed their lives. While they're talking, you'll get to eat samples of their subject matter.
The speakers are a mix of chefs, brewers, writers and artists. You'll be hearing from Lucien Alperstein, who brews, pickles and photographs; Nicholas Jordan, who writes, blogs and researches (including for CP about delicious things like jerky and juice pairing); David Matthews, who chefs, writes and edits; and Georgia Hutchison, who creates art from a range of materials, food included.
Bondi Feast is a fringe-style festival run by the Rock Surfers Theatre Co, combining local theatre, music, comedy, art and food. Since starting up in 2012, the event has double in size. This year, it runs for 11 nights between July 11 and 25, and features more than 100 artists across more than 50 performances.
