Curated Plate, Destination Series - The Ginger Journey. From Farmer to your Plate

09 Aug - 16 Aug
Discover the story of the Australian ginger industry from third generation Ginger Farmer Shane Templeton, learn how ginger is harvested and processed at the world leading Buderim Ginger facility, and enjoy a two course ginger-inspired lunch. Ginger is one of nature’s most delicious culinary spices. It’s not just full of flavour, it is also well-recognised for its health benefits. There is no better place to grow ginger than on the Sunshine Coast due to the Region’s rich volcanic soil, high rainfall and humidity. Hear the story of the Templeton family, their role in the evolution of Buderim Ginger Growers Cooperative, and how seventy years and three generations later, they produce around 2500 tonnes of the world’s finest ginger. See how ginger from the Templeton’s farms is processed into Buderim Ginger products and then sold in over 17 countries. Drawing on his love of ginger and his experience in Chef Hatted restaurants in Sydney, Executive Chef Mischa Cleland uses fresh local ingredients to create a stunning two course ginger-inspired lunch, paired with a glass of Buderim Ginger Alcoholic Ginger Beer. Guests can enjoy a stroll around the beautiful sub-tropical gardens after lunch and will leave with a unique thank you gift
