Market-goers given cooking lessons

GROWERS Market regulars got more than they bargained for with free cooking lessons thrown into the pot yesterday.

Garden guru Phil Dudman was joined in the make-do kitchen by fellow ABC presenter Julie Ray as part of the city’s inaugural Sustainable Living Festival.

The pair selected the best local seasonal produce for their cooking demonstrations and attracted a constant and appreciative crowd.

Tomorrow Mr Dudman will be doing his best to inspire local students to focus more on issues of sustainability during visits to the Coffs Harbour for seed planting demonstrations, and at the Casuarina Steiner School and the Coffs Harbour High School where he will talk about elements of garden design

Mr Dudman is host of popular talkback radio show ‘Good Gardening’ on ABC North Coast NSW and a regular contributor to ABC’s Gardening Australia
