Canberra Good Food Month is back for the sixth year.

The event will see some of the country’s leading chefs headline a range of one-off events from 5 March. Plus, the Night Noodle Markets at Reconciliation Place will run for a record 11 nights from 28 February until 9 March.


“This year’s program brings together some of Australia’s fiercest culinary forces who are pushing the boundaries and creating delicious and dynamic plates around the country,” says Venessa Cowell, Head of Nine Food Events. “We are also proud to champion Canberra’s incredible young rising talent that will soon lead the charge in evolving the country’s dining culture.”

The official Night Noodle Markets menus won’t be revealed until February. But Gelato Messina, Superbao, Hoy Pinoy, Chinese Dim Sum King and Chur Burger will all be there.


GOMA and Brisbane-based chef Matt Blackwell kicks off the feature events on 5 March at Monster Kitchen and Bar. Local produce will form a core part of the multi-course menu which will be accompanied by tunes from a guest DJ.

Louis Tikaram returned to Australia last year after a five-year stint in Los Angeles. The chef will cook a six-course Asian-inspired banquet at Lanterne Rooms on 14 March.


The Young Chefs Dinner on 16 March will see Ben Willis lead some of the industry’s up-and-comers at Aubergine. Diners can expect a four-course meal showcasing the skills of the yet-to-be-announced chefs.

On 18 March, Arc Dining’s Alana Sapwell will team up with Sean McConnell from Rebel Rebel Dining.
