For the Baklava Food Demonstration on Saturday we will be in Tech Room 101 in the Dovedale Campus. Here’s a map:
It’s free to join us, so come along and bring the ingredients (stated below).
We are having a baklava food demonstration session. This is going to be very exciting, as we have Sahin Tasligedik (a baklava expert) to teach us how! Some may remember the delicious baklava we had at our Potluck Club stall on clubs day. Well now you can learn how to make it!
When? Saturday 11th May
Where? UC Dovedale Campus: Tech Room 101
What to bring?
- 70g packs walnuts x 2
- 20 sheets filo pastry (one pack)
- 1 mug of sugar
- 1 mug of water
- 100g of unsalted butter
Utensils to bring:
- A small pot for melting butter
- A baking tray preferably 5cm+ depth
Stovetops and ovens will be provided.
We may or may not ask for contribution to the event depending on whether we can get funding from UCSA or not.
I have a lemon balm plant (the one at the back of the photo) and a mint plant (the plant in front) in my garden. Lemon balm grows like a weed, but is beautiful and smells like sweet lemons. Mint equally grows well if you give it enough water. If you don’t have these plants, they are easy to find and forage. Alternatively they are a great investment, as they grow well in pots and can therefore be transferred easily.
This tea is very easy to make. Just pop a generous clipping of both mint and lemon balm into your teapot and add boiling water. Just make sure you let it sit long enough for the flavors to be infused.
You can also use alternative ingredients such as chamomile, or whatever plants herbs you have! It’s very versatile.
This event was fabulous! A big thank you to all who brought food along. It was all so delicious! For those who couldn’t come, here’s a snippet of some of the food we had:
Thanks to Fidiria for taking these lovely photos, and thanks to the Sustainability House at UC for letting us host such an event.

If you’d like to know how to make the bread, I’ll start with a quick demo at 4pm of the mixing & shaping process, which shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes – it’s a super easy recipe.
If you just want to eat the bread, show up any time between 4:15pm – 5:30pm.
Since I’m moving to Sydney at the end of the month, I also have some kitchenware and spices and stuff which I can’t be arsed taking with me, and some clothes. If you’d like to look through and take whatever you want (for free), maybe come between 3-4pm.
