Futurefoodsystem, the self-sustaining, no-waste eco-house in Fed Square, will reopen for dining this month. Nourish your stomach and your soul, as you experience high quality, zero waste cuisine, from the rooftop garden, micro-farms and other sustainable systems in the house. Expect modern, yet innovative, menus that use fermentation methods, as well as wholesome, self-sustaining family meals. Bookings are available now.
Dinner at Futurefoodsystem
Visit this eco-house for dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings this February. Experimental cook Adam James of Rough Rice is taking a limited, four-week residency at Futurefoodsystem, and he’s bringing his knowledge of fermentation and flavour with him.
“We’re excited to collaborate with Adam to create a new communal dining experience for the public at Futurefoodsystem that embraces the potential fermentation has to dramatically reduce our environmental impact,” said Joost Bakker, creator of Futurefoodsystem.
“Adam’s knowledge of fermentation is unparalleled, and the way he takes inspiration from ancient cultures to create dishes that are both delicious and innovative is inspiring,” he added. “I look forward to experimenting with Adam at the house and trialling his fermentation techniques with our homegrown ingredients.”
Dinner at Futurefoodsystem is a communal 3.5 hour dining experience that allows 14 guests per sitting. They will run from 7pm to 10:30pm, every Friday and Saturday evening, from February 11 to March 5. Bookings are essential.
Lunch at Futurefoodsystem
Sunday lunches are also back at the house. Each Sunday, a pioneering local chef will take over the kitchen, alongside their parents. The family meals will seat 14 guests.
Here is the schedule for the Sunday lunches:
- Tom Sarafian with his mum and granddad on Sunday February 13
- Helly Raichura and her mum on Sunday February 20
- Mahmood Fazal and his mum on Sunday February 27

“We’re proud to again be opening the doors of Futurefoodsystem to have more Australians experience the delicious food that can come out of a zero waste and self-sustaining kitchen,” said Caroline Ralphsmith, Fed Square CEO.
