The owners of LuvaBerry farm will be opening their farm gate and welcoming foodies for a special Twilight Tapas event next month.

Mandy and Adrian Schultz have partnered with chefs Warren Gracie and Chris Jordan from Three Little Birds to deliver a one-of-a-kind tapas experience featuring the farm’s native grown finger limes on February 11.

Mandy says guests will be treated to a relaxed summer evening in the orchard where they can participate in a farm tour, observe a cooking demonstration, and treat their tastebuds to native food and drinks.

“Being a farm that grows authentic native foods, we wanted to take this opportunity to showcase our finger limes in a fun and tasty way,” Mandy says.

“Our farm is well known for our strawberries, but a lot of people don’t know that we also grow other things, like the Moreton Bay Finger Lime.

“People often ask us how finger limes are grown or explain to us that don’t know how to use them when they are cooking, so we thought we would create an event that answers all those questions.

“Adrian will do a talk down in the orchard about how we grow the finger limes, and then Chris, a proud Indigenous man, will do a cooking demonstration.”

Finger limes are a unique native citrus fruit known and used by Indigenous people for thousands of years.

It is now considered a delicacy and used by chefs all around the world.

Bursting with delicious citrus pearls, finger limes are often known as lime caviar.

On the night, Chris will prepare a special tapas-style menu using native ingredients and apply ancient knowledge of customs and techniques to acknowledge, educate and celebrate the unique culture and natural resources Australia has to offer.

In addition, guests will also be able to enjoy a range of native gins made by Lacey’s Hill Distilling Co.

Guests can also BYO their own drinks if they wish.

Mandy says this is just one exciting culinary experience she has planned this year and hopes the community will come out and support them.
