As part of the revitalised festival direction, we are delighted to welcome Australia’s oldest family-owned salt maker and Moss Vale based, Olsson’s Salt, as our live workshop partner.

The Olsson’s Salt Sessions are an opportunity to enjoy a more intimate food and wine experience within the festival village and be dazzled by some of the best talent from the food scene in the country. Not only do our guest presenters either live locally or love the region for leisure but they champion the food and wine producers here for their quality produce and the sustainable practices the Southern Highlands has become famous for.

“Our family have been Southern Highland locals for 25 years and we’re thrilled to be involved with this iconic Festival.” Alex Olsson

Offering real paddock to plate insights and bringing to life the stories that have moulded some of our most celebrated foodies, we are thrilled to be offer such a great line up for the SHFW Festival with local partner Olsson’s Salt.

Our presenters share a common food philosophy of sustainable farming, respect for produce and using natural ingredients, a key factor in their success as diners are more and more engaged in the connection to where their food originates.

On both Sat 26 and Sun 27 February during the festival we will be running 6 of the 40 min sessions per day, each featuring a different chef, producer or leader in their field.
