What’s Cooking in the Gardens?

If you’re looking for fun family activities, Redcliffe is the place to be!  There are so many great things to do, especially for the kids.  Last Sunday (5th Aug) was the “What’s Cooking in the Gardens?” held in the Redcliffe Botanic Gardens.  It’s on every year around this time, however previous years I’ve been sick and haven’t been able to go, so this was my first time and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  So did the girls.

There was so much to see and do and of course, taste test and eat! (Hungarian garlic bread, potato slinkies, calamari, chutneys, oils and more)   Workshops and activities included cooking demonstrations, face painting, pony rides, animal farm, paper making, letterpress printing, design a dragonfly and lots more.  Some of the activities had a small fee but most were free.  The girls made paper tea cups, peg dolls, painted their own herb pot (one chose parsley, the other chives) and patted a snake!  Unfortunately we had to rush off at lunch time so we missed seeing Isabella Bliss (2010 Junior MasterChef winner) and her sister Sofia cook their special dishes.


It was a great family day and I look forward to next year’s What’s Cooking in the Gardens?  Hopefully we’ll be able to stay all day.

What other family events have been on recently or are coming up that you know of? We’re all excited about going to the EKKA next week!
