Breaking Bread at TEDxSydney
The menu consisted of hearty soups, curries, flatbreads, chutneys and pickles – all laid out on communal tables ready for sharing. The meal was also entirely vegetarian, which must be a first for a conference of this size.
Collaborations and partnerships with local communities and social enterprises are always at the heart of TEDxSydney and this year was no different. The hearty broth served at lunch was made using ingredients sourced from local food projects that work to provide opportunities for asylum-seekers and refugees to integrate with Australian communities. Breads were made by The Bread & Butter Project, a social enterprise that trains refugees and asylum seekers as bakers. ARIA Catering also invited a team of indigenous apprentice chefs from the National Indigenous Culinary Institute to help them on the day.
We also love that ARIA Catering have the ability to make a meal of this size and style look simply amazing. From the brown paper covered tables, tin cups and terracotta dishes, to the colourful produce on display, they really have nailed the food and event styling once again.
The result, as you can see below, was an amazing meal enjoyed by all – exactly the way Jill envisaged.
