Sydney and good food go hand in hand like the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House on a postcard.
So, it’s with great excitement that we can say Sydney’s edition of Good Food Month is going ahead, which is absolutely terrific news for the city’s hospitality scene. And for us too, because, let’s be honest, we detest bad food. You probably do too. (Featured image: @goodfoodmonth)
Now in its 22nd year, Good Food Month is turning to local talent to power through the events and tantalise the tastebuds of us all.
Danielle Alvarez, head chef at Paddington’s Freds’s, and Elizabeth Hewson of #Saturdaynightpasta fame (and head creative of the FINK group) will each be treating diners to some feel-good dining experiences. Unfortunately for most of us, Alvarez’s event has already sold out. However, and only if you have a Citi bank card, you should definitely check out Hewson’s multi-course pasta feast and dine to the sounds of classic American Jazz.
The news we’re most excited about, though, is the going live of The Good Weekend Quiz. Quite a special quiz, or two, has been planned by Good Weekend’s The Quiz trivia masters and Good Food’s restaurant critics to test Sydneysiders on their knowledge of food, drinks and Australia’s dining history.
What type of questions are we to expect? Well, something along the lines of:
– What city has the most Michelin-starred restaurants?
– Is omakase a village or something you eat?
– Which legendary Australian chef was born in 1940 and published a book in 1996 that has sold more than half a million copies?
If you know these answers without googling, then you best get your gang of six together and reserve a table now before they’re all sold out. (Please note that tables will only be sold in blocks of six to keep inline with COVID safe procedures.)
Hosted at Eleven Bridge by Rockpool events, the quiz nights are planned for Sunday, October 25 and Monday, October 26. Attendees will be served delicious snacks, main meal, and enough delectable drinks to help you celebrate your gallant victory. Or, wash down your bitter defeat. To take part, you’ll need to depart with $140 but we reckon the night, the entertainment, and the food will be totally worth every penny.
The fan-favourite Night Noodle Markets will also be back this October. However, details are in short supply so far. We have been promised, though, a version like we’ve never seen before.
To see everything on offer, check out the Good Food Month website. Tickets are on sale now.
