Event. Roll up, roll up! ‘Celebrity chef’ Merma Kelly is here to share her secrets.

Assisted by ‘sous chef’ Sally Stanley, the cooking extraordinaire will talk you through the key to a divine dish.

In celebration of and coinciding with National Harmony Day and the United Nations’ International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on March 21, the local event will cater to all ages.

Featuring a cooking demonstration, comedy, live entertainment, and a tutorial for making lollies, the Harmony Day event is in celebration of Circular Head’s cultural diversity.

The Senior Citizens’ Club will entertain the audience with a comedy skit before Sally and Merma whip up a meal to remember.

Cooking her famous noodles, Merma will share her insights and the traditions of Filipino cooking including this nugget of wisdom: “When you’re cooking something you have to smile or it will go sour,” she says.

The audience will have the chance to taste the critically acclaimed noodles as well as having the opportunity to make your own lollies. Afternoon tea will be provided and stories will be shared.

“I love to share, I want people to know more about our way of cooking, our culture and the stories that go with our food,” says Merma.

“This is an inclusive day for everyone, for everyone to see and to come together, a celebration of our diverse cultures here in Circular Head.”

‘Cooking and Comedy’ will be held on Wednesday March 21 at Smithton LINC, 134 to 140 Nelson Street, from 3 to 5pm.
