Marco Pierre White headlines Canberra Good Food Month
Canberra Good Food Month, presented by Citi, has announced its program for March 2018.
International and home-grown chefs, esteemed restaurants and collaborations will ignite the nation’s capital over 31 days, starting 2 March.
Good Food Month officially kicks off with the launch of Enlighten Night Noodle Markets at Reconciliation Place.
Canberra’s own What The Pho, Grill’d & Spice, Kusina and KorBQ will be joined by Night Noodle Market veterans Hoy Pinoy, Twistto, Shallot Thai, Donburi Station and many more.
The Noodle Market will be cash-free, which will enable visitors to spend less time lining up for food and more time eating.
Marco Pierre White will join forces with Ben Willis of the two-hatted restaurant Aubergine for an evening at the National Portrait Gallery on 11 March.
Willis will recreate some of his favourite Marco recipes, as both chefs introduce each course and discuss the inspiration behind the menu.
Willis will also lend his expertise to the latest alumni of talented chefs for Good Food Month’s Young Chefs Lunch presented by Citi on 4 March.
Three of Canberra’s leading Italian chefs will go head to head in the ultimate pasta battle featuring an indulgent feast with matched wine on 3 March, while James Viles from Biota Dining will lead the charge at The Beautiful Dinner, a three-course feast presented by James Squire at The Social Club on 9 March.
“With hotly-tipped talent, beloved institutions, emerging hotspots and enviable local produce, Canberra’s dining scene is growing rapidly and the capital is standing proudly as a leading food destination in Australia,” says Venessa Cowell, director of Food Events at Fairfax Media.
“The 2018 Good Food Month will celebrate the culinary inspiration that fuels the capital, shining a light on the talent that paved the way and those that are shaping its future.”
