Good Food Month is bringing (back) the goods for its 20th anniversary this year.
A delicious program of foodie fun for 2018 has been revealed today, and you best set aside your summer bod goals because there is a lot of good eating to be done in Sydney come October.
This year, the Night Noodle Markets will feature 40 stalls serving Sydney’s sweet, spicy, and savoury finest across 18 balmy spring nights. Under Hyde Park’s leafy canopy you’ll find tried and true faves like Chat Thai, mee goreng from May’s Malaysian Hawker, and Korean tacos from Poklol. Those excellent cheesy waffle cones care of Puffles are back too. And TBC on what very #extra dessert magic Gelato Messina and Black Star will bring back to the table (but they’re probs going to be delish AF).
Hyde Park Palms is also on the return—the pastel coloured, mid-century modern Palm Springs-themed pop-up restaurant we loved last year. There’ll be discussions on food with IRL master chefs like Bill Granger, Christine Manfield, Stephanie Alexander, and Ross Lusted. It’s also where a bunch of special lunches, dinners, and parties are happening.
ICYMI, Italian food is having a moment right now (did we ever not love it?). To feed our culinary curiosity for everything new and wonderful from the OG gods of food, you can settle into a special dinner with Italy’s own Isabella Potì at Hyde Park Palms. Isabella has taken the chef world by storm with her restaurant Bros’ in Southern Italy and has been named as one of the 10 most influential women in Italian cuisine (and she’s only 22).
To celebrate more really awesome women doing awesome things in the world of food, you can join some of the finest chefs in the country at a dinner called Culinary Women of Influence. Sample the work of Alia Glorie from Perth’s Billie H, Karena Armstrong from The Salopian Inn in SA, and Alanna Sapwell from Saint Peter (who told us on the DL she is working on a very exciting new project in Brisbane).
Because GFM is a child of the 90s (having kicked off in ‘98), there’ll be a 90s long lunch with Melbourne-based chef Victor Liong and Sydney’s own master of extreme cakes and owner of Saga, Andy Bowdy. Expect nostalgic, glam-pop vibes and focaccia, vanilla slice, and finger buns with pink icing. Rad.
