There’s an art to making a good porchetta and the guys behind Saluministi are all over it. They shared some of their secrets at the launch of the Knowledge Market at Victoria Harbour which I was invited along to. After the success of Salumnisti’s catering business and pop up shop in North Melbourne, the team is now opening its first permanent shop in the Docklands at Victoria Harbour (right where Collins street and Bourke street disconcertingly meet).
There’s coffee, there’s doughnuts and there’s that porchetta in panini to eat in or takeaway. There’s also the technique of creating a delicious porchetta which the Saluministi team shared as part the launch of the collaborative learning space, the Knowledge Market in the same building.
As part of the Knowledge Market I discovered when it comes to porchetta it’s all about the rub. A combination of fennel seeds, rosemary, thyme, salt and black pepper massaged into some free range pork loin. After slow roasting the result is seriously succulent.
At Knowledge Market you can get your porchetta to go while checking out workshops and events covering culture, food, art, education and personal development. The program includes digital storytelling, cooking, freestyle dance , meditation, social media and team building. At the launch there was hula hooping, “serious play” with lego and a lettering workshop. You can check out the full program here. But if you’re like me, it’s hard to go past the porchetta.
Details: Knowledge Market, 26 – 32 Tom Thumb Lane, Victoria Harbour, Docklands (where Collins and Bourke Street meet).
Damage: Reasonable. Class prices vary from free lunchtime Snapchat workshops (I need to go!) to $246 for a six week meditation course.
