Explore The Forage @ Enlighten Festival.
There’s a wide range of experiences to immerse yourself into at this year’s Enlighten Festival (4–20 March), including a new food precinct—The Forage@Enlighten Festival.
From 11–14 March 2022, local Canberra businesses will pop up at The Forage@Enlighten Festival, bringing you dishes that will delight.
Situated in a spectacular lakeside location in the National Triangle, more than 25 local businesses will come together to serve Canberrans with a selection of regional produce.
Here’s just a taste for what The Forage@Enlighten Festival has in store.
French and Japanese flavours inspired the creation of Ramen Daddy, the brainchild of founders Eddy and John.
These two chefs came together to create a fusion of French and Japanese cuisine to establish their signature broths and noodles, creating a ramen flavour unlike anything you’ve tasted before—just the thing for cooler autumn evenings.
There’s sure to be demand for their Spicy Pork Dan Dan, Beetroot Cool Soba, and Creme Brûlée.
