Here is our guide of what not to miss in this year’s sprawling foodie festival, Good Food Month.
Night Noodle Markets A regular on the Good Food Month program, this evening sees all of our favourite asian-inspired restaurants set up booths in Hyde Park soaking up our warm Spring evenings. We’re the first to admit that the set up sometimes means the fare isn’t as decent as it might have been straight from a fiery kitchen, but the outdoor novelty wins over just the same. October 8 – 25, 5pm – 9pm, Hyde Park, free.
Sweetfest If you aren’t already following Katherine Sabbath on Instagram, prepare to have your humble expectations of cake altogether blown away. Sabbath will be teaching a sugary sweet masterclass, alongside other master bakers like Nadine Ingram from Flour and Stone bakery. You can also buy things from Brickfields, Brewtown Newtown and Brooklyn Hide. Heart attacks all round. October 17- 18, sessions from 9am, Ambush Gallery at Central Park, $20.
Sydney’s First Ramen Rave Almost every amazing chef our city has to offer crammed into the kitchen of Ms G’s, plus Two Thousand’s restaurant critic turned DJ Andrew Levins on the decks. Cooking the ramen is Dan Hong (Mr Wong/Ms G’s), Mitch Orr (ACME), Ben Sears and Eun Hee An (Moon Park), Federico Zanaletto (LuMi) and Pasi Petanen (Cafe Paci). Whether or not hefty noodle soup should be mixed heavy beats, still yet to be decided. October 25, from 6.30pm, Ms G’s Potts Point, $135 includes beverages.
Best of the Brunch Sydney is very good at breakfast: anything and everything from baked eggs, waffles, smashed avocado, house made granola, fresh bagels, the best espresso – it can make breakfast abroad a dismal affair. This event puts a few of the best in the one place, plus champagne and harbour views. Find Hartsyard, West Juliette, Single Origin Roasters and more. October 3, sessions from 8am, LuMi Bar and Dining Pyrmont, $55 includes beverages.
