If you've been pulling your hair out with this crazy year picking off your favourite experiences one by one, then you're going to like this. Sydney Good Food Month is returning for its 22nd year with a host of intimate in-person events on the schedule, including the one-and-only Night Noodle Markets.
In the past, the Night Noodle Markets have brought together every imaginable type of noodles, bao buns, fried chicken, burgers, skewers, "Puffles", insane one-off treats from Gelato Messina and Black Star Pastry, and that semi-ridiculous bowl of floating noodles called "Way of Dragon" from Flying Noodle.
This year, of course, you can expect the event to take place on a smaller, more COVID-friendly scale. Full details on the NNM are all hush-hush for now—we only know that the 2020 edition of the markets will be "as you’ve never seen them before". While we wait for the full lineup to drop, we can strongly assume the markets will deliver the goods with quality over quantity.
The delicious news doesn't stop there, however, because there's tonnes more foodie mayhem to get stuck into throughout October for Good Food Month. More than ever, thanks to the current state of the world, this year's program will be looking to showcase local culinary talent and restaurants.
Let Danielle Alvarez—head chef at Fred's—plate you up an intimate two-course lunch or dinner with matching wines to help launch her new book, Always Add Lemon. Take that Italian culinary trip you were planning with Bondi Icebergs Dining Room and Bar's "A Night in Napoli", which will be a food, wine, and musical showcase of Naples, backgrounded by one of Sydney's most beautiful waterfront views. Or, sit down for Good Food Month's yearly Young Chefs Lunch, October 31, held this year at Alibi Bar & Kitchen. It will shine a light on Sydney's best up and coming chef's, who are being challenged to execute a fine plant-based lunch.
Tickets are available online now. Get excited and check out the full range of events here.
