Lisa embraces the part of Jewish culture which embodies the saying ‘it’s always about the food’. She is a fresser with an unbridled passion for eating, cooking and nurturing those around her with food. Her legal background has given her a great foundation to help guide – and work side by side with – this truly amazing bunch of kind, funny and enlightening women to produce and publish four extraordinary cookbooks. She feels incredibly grateful to have had (and still has) the opportunity – since 2006 – to spend so much of her time dedicated to, and fully immersed in, such a delicious, inspiring and worthwhile project.
Many of you know I have been on the growing 'don't buy Tassie salmon' bandwagon since reading Richard Flanagan's book Toxic about a year ago. It was shocking to see the state of the industry, and even more shocking that we thought we were eating something that was really good for us. This just-released video has strengthened my resolve (which I have to admit was waning as I am not sure how much impact we have all had) to continue and to spread the word.
Please share this post, or any post supporting this stand, it is such an important message - especially for those of us who used to love eating Tassie salmon.
And sadly this also applies to all the smoked salmon from Tassie including @huonsalmon which we all used to love.
Click on the link in our profile for the original @neighbours_of_fish_farming video. 🙏🏻 @joostbakker for posting the video, that's where I first saw it.
I have been buying NZ king salmon @regalsalmonnz @orakingsalmon and @alpinesalmon (Mt Cook, NZ, can buy at @harrisfarmmarkets) and exploring many other fish options. Check out @goodfishproject for an excellent guide to what we should be buying here in Aus.
We also need to rally the big buyers in Aus - @colessupermarkets @woolworths_au to stop buying farmed Tassie salmon until the industry has been cleaned up.
(btw when we were in beautiful Tassie last year, not one restaurant we went to served salmon. Doesn't that say something?)
