24th October – from 5pm


The Joy of Food

An evening of intimate conversation with Chef Pete Evans about bringing love & joy back into the kitchen.

What to eat, how to eat, when to eat, which diet to follow…food in the modern world can be complicated! And while Pete Evans certainly doesn’t shy away from his views – a cornerstone of his philosophy is the healing power of food and that healthy, nourishing food can be simple and joyful to prepare. We will talk to Pete about his new book, “Dinner In Five”, and his previous title, “Heal; 101 Simple Ways to Improve Your Life in a Modern World”.

The conversation will be followed by an intimate meet & greet with Pete and a book signing.

Join us for this spring event in Kiama brought to you by the Institute of Interesting Ideas.

Dinner in 5 makes healthy dinners easy by stripping back meals to 5 main ingredients. Each dish has five ingredients or less and each recipe includes an optional (and equally simple!) sauce, rub or side to add if you feel like taking things up a notch. Think crispy salt and pepper prawns with a kick of lime and chilli. A healthy spin on the beloved Chinese lemon chicken. The juiciest pork cutlets topped with zingy pineapple salsa. Crackling barbecue chicken that needs nothing else but a squeeze of lemon and a simple green salad. Easy, fast, delicious. With minimal ingredients and minimal fuss, this new cookbook makes it easier than ever for families to eat well together every night of the week.
