March into Merivale

March: it means autumn, sort of, lots of birthdays, and St Patrick's Day. In Sydney, it also means March into Merivale, the hospitality group's in-house (and increasingly massive) food festival. Its launch is now the stuff of legend among local canapé-grabbers, and this year 2,500 pairs of hands shot up and out around the Ivy complex in a mad scramble for snacks and Instagram fodder.

The sixth March into Merivale festival is themed "Born to Cook", which is a nice fit for what we think is the month's hottest ticket: Generation Next, the dinner GT hosts annually in collaboration with Est. On Tuesday 25 March, we'll be showcasing the skills of six of the country's top new culinary talents; grab the March issue of GT for all the details.

Elsewhere, the theme taps into the earliest favourite food memories of Merivale's chefs, translating into more than 60 food and wine events. Making a welcome comeback are the Taco Challenge at El Loco and $33 meal deals across the group, along with one-offs: Culinary Pursuit trivia at Ash St Cellar; Green Fairies absinthe tastings at Felix (not sure whose childhood memory that was); and life-drawing classes at the Ivy Penthouse (Peek into the Penthouse). Jeremy Strode will be doing Brick Lane-style Indian at Bistrode CBD, there'll be high tea at Est with Puttin' on the Ritz, and the juggernaut that is Manly's Papi Chulo will bring its smoky, meaty, boozy good times to the other side of the harbour at Ivy with Where There's Smoke on 19 March.

And there's (way) more where that came from - get into it.

March into Merivale runs until 11 April. To book a spot at GT's Generation Next dinner call Est on (02) 9240 3000
