JOIN SARAH GLOVER AND HAPPY CAMPER PIZZA FOR A FAMILY-FRIENDLY CAMPFIRE COOKUP.
Join us as the sun sets over Melbourne and the campfire crackles with an early dinner. We are beyond excited to be teaming up with Happy Camper Pizza to bring you an exclusive campfire menu. Graze from a generous table piled high with local cheeses, bread, fruit, preserves and cured meats. As the fire heats up, the team will serve an exclusive assortment of handmade, wood-fired pizzas designed by Sarah Glover and cooked and served by Happy Camper Pizza. This is a family event with games and delicious offerings for all.
Happy Camper Pizza is the family-run business of Remi and Sonia. Their family travelled around Australia in an Airstream and ate pizza in as far-flung places as Coober Pedy. Happy Camper’s Allegra is made from a 1968 Airstream – a feat of engineering to fit out as a pizza van complete with an Italian, commercial-sized wood-fired oven! Their 1962 Chevrolet, Merri The Chevy, is unlike any food truck in Australia.
For 16 years, Sarah Glover has made a career as a chef and pastry chef in Tasmania, Sydney and New York but these days you will rarely find her in a kitchen. Instead, the great outdoors is where she now plies her trade.
This fascination with cooking in the wild has long been with Glover but was reignited when she returned to Tasmania. There, on the sands of a beach and deep in the heart of the island she first called home, she realised that her kitchen didn’t need to be constricted to a metal bench under fluorescent lights, but rather it could – and should – be taken outdoors.
These days, Glover caters events worldwide with her over-the-fire ways, runs a cookie company called Bondi Bikkies, and has just released her first cookbook – unsurprisingly called WILD. Shot at over 17 locations along Australia’s east coast, WILD takes the reader outdoors as Glover shares a new way to see the world around you: as your very own kitchen, a place to surround yourself with family and friends. From Tasmania’s Satellite Island to Byron Bay, Glover shows us how to zoom in and see opportunity in every moment, and to embrace life, food and community. For Glover, this is what it’s all about: those she shares it with: the memories made and the laughs had.
