Sydney locals experienced the first taste of Summer on Saturday 10 September 2016 when Australian Pineapples came to the Entertainment Quarter at Moore Park with live cooking demonstrations, Q&A sessions and free pineapple tastings.
Pineapples are an aromatic and delicious fruit that originating in South America but are grown commercially in Australia. They are available for consumption all year round, not just during summer. Consumers can add some sweeter varieties of pineapples to their dishes during the cooler months for an endless Aussie summer flavour.
The event was hosted by Australian Pineapples ambassador, Martyna Angell, who is also the author of The Wholesome Cook. Martyna Angell’s cooking demonstrations occurred at 10am and 12 midday and market goers got to taste two of her creations: spicy pork tacos with pineapple salsa and caramalised pineapple fruit salad.
Recipe cards were also handed out for other dishes Martyna created such as: kingfish and pineapple carpaccio; grilled pineapple teriyaki chicken salad; caramelised pineapple, cinnamon and lime skewers; and pineapple and turmeric crush.
