Taste of Sydney 2017

This is what visitors enjoyed at Taste of Sydney 2017, March 9-12.

Opening night, March 9th and the tone was set with some great food quotes....

Dozens of wine outlets are available for tastings. Buy your vouchers from a tent or the pink-clad wandering 'cashiers' who will upload money to your card which works at all food and wine exhibits.

It's a relaxed and fun way to learn about a lot of wines in a short time.

Of course the thirteen restaurants catering for the event have a wide range of foods. This is Four in Hand's grilled South Australian sardines and pickles. A delicious and generous serve for $6.

This is from Kensington Street Social: The Social Dog. Cumberland sausage, green apple butter, crumbled black sausage and cheddar, $12.

Lots to taste for free, too, along the way, with breads, cheeses, juices....

.....artisan salamis, chocolates....and much more.

And if you need some cool entertainment, there are musicians to set the tone of a wonderful Sydney evening.

Make sure you head on down to Brazilian Fields in Centennial Park this weekend.


More details below....





It's all happening again very soon! Read on for Exclusive Ticket offer!

Taste of Sydney in partnership with Electrolux unveils a stellar line up of the city’s top chefs, new and renowned food precincts and returning restaurant favourites for 2017.

An unmissable lineup of Sydney’s latest and greatest restaurants from new and noteworthy precincts that will come together for the ultimate pop-up playground in Centennial Park from Thursday 9th to Sunday 12th March 2017.

For the first time, Taste will transpose the city’s hottest new foodie destinations. The revitalized and buzzing Paddington precinct is home to some of the city’s top restaurants and bars right now, and the reinvigorated suburb will showcase some of its award-winning chefs and restaurants. Young gun chef Josh Niland will join Taste for the first time with his hugely popular Australian seafood restaurant Saint Peter along with Latin American bar man and executive chef Regan Porteous of Tequila Mockingbird, which opened in mid-2016.

Acclaimed French-born chef Guillaume Brahimi together with Public House Management Group will also make an impression at the festival for the first time, bringing to Taste one of Paddington’s best-loved dining rooms, Four in Hand by Guillaume.

As Sydney’s newest precinct to debut at Taste, Barangaroo will showcase an array of its standout restaurants, that opened along the waterfront in 2016. The dynamic duo behind the popular Bar H, chef Hamish Ingham and sommelier Rebecca Lines will present their newest venture Banksii, a vermouth bar and bistro where you can experience the botanical focused menu influenced by the Mediterranean. Renowned Turkish born Australian chef Somer Sivrioglu will also transport his restaurant Anason from The Streets of Barangaroo to Taste of Sydney where visitors will be treated to authentic Turkish cuisine.

Over the four days, the festival will also feature a lineup of the CBD’s newest restaurant openings, including Bouche on Bridge headed up by Harry Stockdale-Powell who will prepare his approachable fine dining offering through local and sustainable produce. Spanish inspired Mercado Restaurant will make an appearance with head chef and co-owner Nathan Sasi cooking up signature dishes based on his philosophy of revival of the old with the new through whole animal butchery, meat curing, cheese making, bread baking and preserving.

New to Taste and recently crowned NSW Restaurant of the Year by Gault Millau, Gastro Park (Potts Point) has been added to the ‘gastronomic playground’ this year in the park.

Returning restaurant favourites to join the impressive lineup include popular Argentinean restaurant Portēno, British Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton’s Kensington Street Social headed up by chef Robert Daniels and nel. Restaurant brought to you by innovative chef Nelly Robinson this time creating a never-before-seen Little nel. sweet shop with a selection of extraordinary indulgences exclusive to the festival.

Returning due to popular demand, visitors can cook with their favourite chefs at the Electrolux Chef’s Secrets and learn how to prepare signature dishes to elevate their cooking skills to the next level in an intimate, hands-on masterclass. After cooking up an appetite take a seat at the communal kitchen table and enjoy the fruits of your labour with a glass of matched wine in this unique dining space. If you’d rather sit back and relax, head to the Electrolux Taste Theatre hosted by Kate Gibbs and watch Sydney’s leading chefs cook up a feast with the latest Electrolux cooking appliances.

Be inspired by more guest chefs in the Lurpak Cookery School as they immerse visitors in the kitchen by getting creative with cooking in a series of 30-minute masterclasses. Join the charismatic wine experts from The Wine Society on an educational and engaging journey as they discuss all things wine and food at their education workshops, with premium wines available for tasting.

Meat and Livestock Australia presents Cooks Corner in association with the Food Network, where TV personalities and chefs, Andy Allen and Ben Milbourne will host a series of meat mastery cooking demonstrations. An abundance of artisan producers including The Cider Lab, Black Swan and Hellfire Bluff Distillery will entertain your taste-buds as well as plenty of other live music and free-to-attend attractions available over the four days of Taste.
