These feature events are the hottest tickets in town.
Sydney’s biggest food festival, Sydney Good Food Month returns in October. Now in its 21st year, the festival is bringing some of the biggest names in both the local and international dining scene together for a number of exclusive culinary experiences.
With feature events going on sale Thursday 25 July, the program boasts the likes of Peter Gilmore, Katherine Sabbath, Clayton Wells, Jock Zonfrillo and Monty Koludrovic who will be joining forces with international legends Alain Passard (L’Arpège), Hiroyuko Sato (Hakkoku) and Thomas Frebel (INUA, ex-Noma). These experiences will be held across iconic Sydney restaurants Automata, Icebergs, Hubert, Quay, Mary’s Underground, Otto, Pendolino and QT.
Venessa Cowell, Head of Food Events, Nine says: “Good Food Month continues to evolve with Sydney’s dynamic, changing food culture and champion the talent leading the charge. In 2019, we’re excited to move our feature events back into venues across Sydney, heroing the local institutions that define our Harbour City with a seriously inspiring and tasty line-up of chef collaborations”.
At Robb Report, we think these three events are a must.
