An Indigenous Australian Dinner Party with Rohani Foulkes of Folk and The Farmer's Hand
Inspired by their love for food, empowerment, community development and contributing to the greater good of humans, Chefs Kiki Louya + Rohani Foulkes have been busy focusing on local agriculture and food justice with the co-creation of their Corktown Folk and The Farmers Hand Kiki of Congolese descent studied at Le Cordon Bleu and trained under chefs from the likes of Paul Kahan (Blackbird, Avec, Nico Osteria). Rohani – a native of Cairns, Australia, holds a Masters Degree in International Education, a trade apprenticeship in culinary arts and years as a chef on the East Coast of Australia. As a testament to their acclaim, these media darlings were just named one of the 19 Great Restaurants to Work For by Food & Wine Magazine, dedicated to treating their restaurant family, as professionals; setting high standards from the get-go. Add to this, their impeccable technique, coveted style and a whole load of imagination and we end of up with two genuinely cherished dinner parties honoring each of their cultural hearths and cherished food traditions. Taking over the frame space for two Friday nights, Kiki and Rohani will lead the kitchen together twice; each with their own creative dinner menus. The first one, an exploration of indigenous Australian cuisine on Friday, October 11th. And the second, an exploration of West & Central African Culture on Friday, November 15th. You won’t be able to pick just one. Read on to digest these two menus and you’ll soon see why.
