Celebrating another successful Around the Fire Pit Event

Congratulations to our Jardilunji Mia hospitality students for another successful Around the Fire Pit event hosted at Gwoonwardu Mia Cultural Centre. 

Under the expert guidance of mentors Matt Moncrieff and Mark Attard, the students helped to cook and serve a delicious menu for the guests at the café. 

The menu they crafted was bursting with Indigenous flavours and bush ingredients that they collected on a foraging trip with Raymond Edney. This not only added unique twist to the menu but also emphasised the importance of tradition and connection to the land. 

Here’s a glimpse of the mouthwatering menu they served: 

  • Bush Tomato Damper  
  • Shark Bay Prawns with river mint yoghurt and Bush Tucker Dukkah 
  • Kangaroo Pie, Eucalyptus Smoked Pumpkin & Bush Tomato Relish 
  • Firepit Emu, Fig, Goats Cheese, Pomegranate, Pecan Salad 
  • Popcorn Crocodile, Finger Lime Aioli, Salsa 
  • Aniseed Myrtle Infused Pink Schnapper with Succulent salad and Citrus Vierge 
  • Finger Lime Cheesecake with Blackberry Coulis

It was a true celebration of culture and tradition, and working with renowned foodies and chefs is an incredible opportunity for our students to upskill and get a taste of a chef’s career.  

We’re super proud of our students and the outstanding contribution they made to the event, and we look forward to the next Around the Fire Pit Event. 

Jardilunji Mia is our training café and every 6-months we have a new cohort of students who complete their Cert II in Hospitality through TAFE and getting practical experience by working at the café. Find out more here –
