Big Heart Bamboo – Becky Miwako

Big Heart Bamboo was founded in 2014 by city girl turned farmer, Becky Miwako. Bamboo was not something new to Becky’s life as her father, Durnford Dart, established what is now Australia’s largest bamboo plantation in 1989. However, it was a zen-like camping trip in a local bamboo grove led Becky to discover Bamboo Shoots –  a culinary delicacy in most Asian countries. As a science student at the University of Queensland, Becky’s natural curiosity for nutrition and sustainability of this awkward little vegetable began to surface and soon went into overdrive. Becky now lives on the property and has taken out a lease on 20 acres of bamboo plantation. She supplies a number of retailers and restaurants, including Wasabi, with fresh and pickled gourmet bamboo shoots. Join us to find out more about Becky’s journey of discovery, the correct way to prepare bamboo shoots and recipe ideas.
