MARK MCNAMARA OPENS THE FOOD LUDDITE KITCHEN STUDIO
A year after launching his Food Luddite enterprise, Mark McNamara has created a dynamic, interactive space for cooking classes in the Barossa, Australia’s Premier wine region.
A Widely acclaimed chef and food mentor, Mark's Focus on regional provenance and true seasonality has been his calling card long before it was fashionable. It was this philosophy that characterised his role as Executive Chef of Appellation until 2012 and saw the stylish Barossa eatery rise to be one of Australia’s leading regional restaurants.
Now after More than 30 years as a professional chef, he is a self-?proclaimed Food Luddite, favouring time?honoured techniques over new technology and culinary gimmickry. The Kitchen Studio has been created to give people real food experiences.
"At its essence it’s all about handmade food," Mark says. “We Designed the Kitchen Studio to Be a warm and inviting space, the perfect place to learn new skills and sharpen old ones."
Set in the picturesque hamlet of Greenock, the Food Luddite Kitchen Studio can accommodate up to 8 people and offers classes that explore a range of food traditions and cuisines.
"My wife Jo?Ann and I are thrilled to open the Kitchen Studio and look forward to welcoming guests into this space."
