Riverlights Online 2020 would not have been possible without the assistant from a range of people, community groups, cultural groups and local businesses.
Thank you to our host Sarah Farley-Adams for your continued support.
A big thank you to Fisheye Creative who filmed and edited all the wonderful videos that make Riverlights Online.
With the assistance of Amorelle Dempster and Slow Food Hunter Valley, we were able to experience a range of cooking demonstrations of traditional cultural dishes from Vietnam to South Sudan to South Korea and across the world.
Each demonstration will be sure to tantalise the taste buds.
Thank you to those who participated in the cooking demonstrations.
