“Tasting the Gibbum” Chefs Cruise (part of Destination Tweed Artisan Food Weekend)

“Tasting the Gibumm” Chefs Cruise

Pipit Restaurant, Currie Country, Tweed Eco Cruises are excited to collaborate, to share with you the bounties of the Gibbum (moon) harvest on the Tweed River.

Cruising along the scenic Tweed River (departing from Tweed Marina) you will see stunning natural landscapes, learn Aboriginal stories, history and harvesting traditions from Currie Country while chefs from Pipit Restaurant will create a new menu to match the produce stories. The experience also includes a special shallow river dance performance by Thomas E S Kelly (Karul Projects).

Gibumm (moon) affects all the ecosystems, and full moons are traditionally an active joyous time on the Tweed River. There is a lot of feeding movement and growth, fat jubei, bigger fish in closer, and fattest yugari and kinyingarra at this time. These subtle changes and abundance in local produce is the gift from Gibbum, and this last full moon of Novemeber (30 November) is the beginning of the best Gibumm eating - which means good eating from the rivers.

The lunch menu will focus on:

• Kinyingarra (oysters)

• Yugari (pipis)

• Jubei (crab)

• Garragull (grass tree)

• Kelp Seaweed and other coastal plants

Much like the open plan kitchen of Pipit, this event will give you open access to also see live cooking and hear commentary directly from chefs. This exclusive small group experience (max 35) will include a range of canapes, taster plates, dessert, and wines from Pipit.

The seafood chefs cruise is a part of Destination Tweed’s Food Artisan Weekend.

Tickets are $250pp with bookings via www.pipitresturant.com
