For the whole of October the Good Food Month event whisks up a storm in Australia, namely Sydney as a focal culinary experience. Powered by the Sydney Morning Herald and Citi Financial Services, this is your time to head to NSW and pack a bit of weight on those hips.
With featured events such as Sweetfest, Growers Bunch and Shoot the Chef, the latter is an annual competition where anyone, nationally can take part of this photography extravaganza. Grab your camera and take a snap of a chef. Maybe it’s your five year old who’s a dab hand at cracking eggs on the kitchen floor, your favorite sous chef in the nearby café or your mother slaving away on Christmas day trying to jam the turkey in the oven. The winner receives $5,000 cash, a snazzy Nikon camera and a multitude of other photography lovers gifts.
If desserts have your name written all over them, Sweetfest is right up your alley. The Masterclass Stage will showcase Amy Chanta, Dan Lepart and Alistair Wise, amongst others, demonstrating how to ice those buns, cake decorating tips and the art of perfecting super choux pastry, darlings.
Remember to keep the 5th October at 6.30pm free for a special event. In memory of Josephine Pignolet the Good Food Month will host a very special award of their 25th Anniversary: Young Chefs Dinner. Josephine, a great chef, died in an accident in 1987 and this annual dinner is presented in her honor. It takes place at 11 Bridge Street so if you’re not invited, head down there and start taking snaps of this memorable event.
There are two Lazy Day events within the October calendar, namely Café Collective and Sunday Sessions. Café collective is all about the most important meal of the day: breakfast. Rally a crowd of pals and you can enjoy a set menu during weekdays so remember to tweet #breakfastclub while you’re fressing up a morning storm at numerous featured restaurants hosting these morning glories. Check the website for more details on participating restaurants and their pre fix menu price.
The event also includes an array of dining experiences, including family friendly ones, and various restaurant offers who are participating in the month long event. Make the most of these deals.
With a stuffed stomach and no room for a morsel more, grab that short ferry ride and head back to Cremorne Point. By the time you take a hefty walk around the scenic area, you’ll have burned off those calories and can enjoy something sweeter: The stunning Harbour view from boutique hotel, Cremorne Point Manor. It’s a skyline dream you can sink your teeth into without adding a pound, we promise.
