Foodies unite! Sydney’s Carriageworks has announced their Autumn food program, bringing together masterclasses, demonstrations and celebrated chefs to their already popular farmers market.
A sold out MAD Monday event is kicking off on April 16, coinciding with hospitality’s traditional day of rest.
Hosted by Caroline Baum, and initiated by Denmarks’ René Redzepi back in 2016, the first Sydney panel discussion will talk all things ‘Indigenous Foodways’.
Aiming to inspire the culinary community to care for the environment, the focus will be on the ever-growing demand for native ingredients across the country.
Uncle Mac Dulumunmun Harrison, Gayle Quarmby, Palisa Anderson and Mat Lindsay will give academic, traditional and cutting-edge insight for the inclusion of Indigenous knowledge and ingredients in food preparation and cooking.
The refreshments could be considered a highlight in itself; ’MAD Snake’, a Two Metre Tall brew, has been especially created to celebrate the occasion, alongside select Billy Kwong collaborative wines.
Less than a week later, the main event Masterclass is not to be missed!
April 21 will see celebrated chef and author, Christine Mansfield, take over Bay 20.
An intimate event, the two hour class will showcase the theme, ‘Flavour partners and Seasonal Produce’.
Expect to see exciting, innovative takes on well-loved Hiramasa kingfish, raw milk feta, tabbouleh and rice puddings.
Regular and new visitors to the weekly farmers markets are also invited to attend demonstrations from some of the city’s top chefs and producers on select Saturdays from 9AM.
Hosted by food critic and writer, Jill Duplex, the morning shows are sure to stimulate the tastebuds as we head into the cooler months.
Icebergs Bar and Dining’s Chef Monty Koludrovic will start the ball rolling, presenting creative ways with market produce hand-selected that day.
Saturdays will also see the likes of Almond Bar’s Carol and Sharon Salloum, Lankan Filling Station’s O Tama Carey, and Paper Bird’s Eun See An and Ben Sears.
The talents behind Flour and Stone, Pasta Emilia and Dessertmakers will also be around to show-off their expert crafts and products across the season.
