Get your elastic pants out and prepare your bellies, it’s that time of year again – The Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food Month is here!
It’s nearly October, and for Sydneysiders, that means one thing: Good Food Month! With an array of over 300 tastings, masterclasses, entertainment, and more, it’s no wonder that the world’s largest food festival is so popular.
Myffy Rigby, the creative director genius behind Sydney’s festival says: “This year’s Good Food Month is an exciting mix of grassroots talent and wild adventures from food and music at Bennelong, to a hands-on Feral Party at Young Henrys, a special Best of the Brunch event at the Pyrmont Growers’ Market and a Wild Picnic with food hunted, foraged, gathered and prepared by top chefs like James Viles (Biota) and David Moyle (Hobart’s Franklin). This year, it’s an all-access pass to the best of the best.”
The New & The Old
Sweet tooths, dessert aficionados, and chocolate fiends, make your way to Sweetfest on October 17 and 18, and get free soft serve ice cream by checking out the social channels for where the festival’s ice cream van will be popping up throughout the month!
Foodies with an oriental desire, do not miss the ever coveted Night Noodle Markets from the 8th-25th in Hyde Park, complete with The Singleton Whisky & Sugar Bar by Christina Tosi (star of New York City’s Momofuku Milk Bar).
One of our favourite events is the ‘How I Eat’ discussion on October 25th at the Art Gallery of NSW. Chris Ying (editor in chief of foodie heaven journal, Lucky Peach), Terry Durack (SMH chief critic), and Jonathan Gold (all round food critic god and Pulitzer Prize Winner) will discuss all things delicious with a special screening of Gold’s documentary, City of Gold, afterwards. Disclaimer: drooling and stomach rumbling will no doubt ensue.
Sydney's Good Food Month also invites you to be part of the festival online with their #jointhefest Instagram competition – for more details, click here.
Good Food Month is set to take over Sydney from October 1 – 31.
