Time to strap on the eating boots, folks: Taste of Sydney is back in town this month for three days of good eating, drinking and revelry in Centennial Park.
It's all about fun, gutsy good times in the food department this year, with a restaurant line-up featuring the likes of Hartsyard, Popolo, Porteño, and Four in Hand. Warren Turnbull and the team from Chur Burger will be dishing up three customised burgers just for the event, one of them a tip of the hat to Turnbull's time at dearly departed fine-diner Banc.
"We've got a mussel fritter burger with a spiced rémoulade and dill-pickled cucumber, then we've got crisp pork belly with a chilli caramel, mint slaw and aïoli and then the third one is a wagyu Rossini burger, so it's got foie gras and truffle jus," he says. "Come and try all three."
The thirsty can try a hand at mixology at Sensology's Art of Cocktail Making workshop, or drop by the Gourmet Traveller WINE Pop-up Bar by Rushcutters, where the team will be pouring sustainable and organic wines, among others. Plus, GT WINE's Judy Sarris and Nick Stock will host their ever-popular guided tastings.
As always, the GT team will be there in full force, co-sponsoring the Chef's Skillery with Dilmah, where the likes of Louis Tikaram (Longrain), Peter Kuruvita (Noosa Beach House), James Viles (Biota) and Somer Sivrioglu (Efendy) share practical kitchen and cooking tips and tricks. In addition to the Rushcutters bar, GT WINE will also bring the fun with its ever-popular guided tastings.
And it gets even better. Taste is offering GT readers two pre-sale tickets for $40, which can only mean one thing: more money to spend on food and booze.
We look forward to seeing you there.
