A whole month dedicated to good food? I can get behind this idea.
With almost a million festival-goers in 2012, a new, national food event is set to capture tastebuds around the country when Good Food Month presented by Citi gets underway for 2013.
In October, Sydney and regional NSW will see the return of the much-loved The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Month, with events popping up in Canberra and Brisbane too. And stand by for the brand-new The Age Good Food Month across Melbourne and regional Victoria, in November.
Restaurants, bars and leading food businesses will show off what they do best with Let’s Do Lunch, Hats Off Dinners and Pop-ups & Parties along with signature events like the Night Noodle Markets taking place in both Sydney and Melbourne this year. And Shoot the Chef, our annual food photography competition also launched nationally for the first time.
It wouldn’t be a celebration of food without a line-up of amazing chefs including Rene Redzepi, the creative genius behind Noma restaurant in Copenhagen, ranked second in the world. Redzepi will headline at a series of events in both Sydney and Melbourne. In November, his colleague Alex Atala – the chef sensation from Sao Paolo in Brazil, ranked number six in the world, will also be heading Down Under.
Most of the events are outside Canberra, but there’s still some foody fun to be found here.
