Cornersmith Are Hosting A Series Of Sustainable Cooking Workshops At Carriageworks Farmers Markets

Eat, Play, Sydney / 22 January 2021

Head to Carriageworks Farmers Markets to learn the secrets to sustainable cooking from Cornersmith.

Sydney foodies will be no stranger to the Carriageworks Farmers Markets. Each Saturday, this site in Eveleigh comes alive with some of the best growers and producers from around NSW. And now, there’s another reason to head out to Carriageworks this summer with a series of epic workshops kicking off in February 2021.

Get ready for a new curated series of Sustainable Kitchen Workshops, hosted in collaboration with Cornersmith. From February, these weekly workshops will be presented every Saturday for the next three months at Carriageworks’ cafe space.

Each 90-minute sustainability workshop will focus on seasonal produce from that week’s edition of the Carriageworks Farmers Market. Expect the crew from Cornersmith to take you through a bunch of handy topics and recipes including home-made hot-sauce, bottled tomatoes, kosher pickles, kitchen-scrap kimchi, as well a monthly class focussed on waste-free shopping and cooking.

Along with these workshops, Cornersmith’s own cooking school will be taking up a residency at Carriageworks from February to April 2021. Here, you’ll be able to join their popular program of in-depth classes that showcase the art of preserving, pickling and fermenting.
