Hunter Gatherer Dinner Club comes to Straddie

We are all Hunter Gatherers!

We came from the wide plains and open woodlands. Our physical design from our erect posture, to our hand/eye coordination, to the shape of our teeth and the chemistry of our digestive system equipped us to find nourishment from what we could hunt and forage across these grasslands and their adjoining waters. We are, and always will be, Hunter Gatherers.

The Hunter Gatherer Dinner Club is an association of leading chefs, food lovers, raconteurs and naturalists dedicated to proving that modern, urbanized humans are still hunter gatherers at heart. As hunter gatherers we trod lightly over the face of the Earth and all food was precious, never wasted. Food came in many forms from both animals and plants and was eaten raw, cooked or preserved for later. A feast was a major social occasion with a range of meats, seafoods, fruits and vegetables on offer. As it was then so it is today for the offering of a diversity of foods hunted and gathered from the backyard, the paddock, the water or your local providore brings together good food, good company and good times.
