Sydney Good Food Month will celebrate its 20th year this October, returning with a full program of events with top chefs from across the city and beyond.
Making a comeback this year is the Hyde Park Palms, Good Food Month’s pop-up restaurant in the heart of Hyde Park North. From 4-21 October, the Palm Springs-inspired restaurant will play host to conversations with Australian culinary figures Neil Perry, Bill Granger, Christine Manfield, Stephanie Alexander and Ross Lusted.
It will also host dinners with international talent, including Italy’s Isabella Potì and LA’s Jason Neroni, as well as lunches with Andy Bowdy, Victor Liong, Mitch Orr and Kate Reid.
Kicking off on 4 October, the Night Noodle Markets also return to Hyde Park with 40 hawker-style stalls over 18 nights. Gelato Messina, Hoy Pinoy, The Original Korean Twist Potato, Mr Bao, Shallot Thai, Donburi Station, Waffleland, Wonderbao, Donut Papi, Black Star Pastry, Satay Brothers McHenry Avenue and Chur Burger are among this year’s line-up.
“Our 20th anniversary program takes a retrospective look at how the local and international dining scene has developed over the last 20 years, celebrating the chefs, dishes and restaurants that paved the way and stood the test of time,” says Venessa Cowell, head of food events at Fairfax Events & Entertainment.
“We want to take guests on an adventure through the moments that have evolved Sydney dining, reflecting on everything from the original innovators to the new-guard who are pushing boundaries and creating the next chapter in our culinary history.”
Festival favourites Let’s Do Lunch presented by Peter Lehmann Wines of the Barossa and the Friends of Good Food Month event series will also make their return, with the line-up of participating restaurants and events to be announced soon.
