    About Yam Yam!...

     

    The festival runs from Saturday 1 February - Saturday 15 March and throughout this time look out for the range of pop up restaurants, workshops and transformations happening in our cafe. All produce used in the food is sourced locally and our garden is simultaneously being developed to use the produce grown in our cafe and achieve our goal of becoming zero waste to landfill by the end of 2014. Throughout the festival we will also be working with resident chef Jamima Fagta who will add an East Asian flavour to our cafe menu and artist resident artist Jack Brown will be transforming the Albany cafe with the help of pupils from Tidemill Academy.
