Crave Sydney International Food Festival 2012
When: Monday, 1 October – Wednesday, 31 October
It’s a food festival that runs in October with almost 500 events going on. There are tours, talks, tastings, cooking classes, breakfasts, lunches, and dinners (some with secret locations) and more foodies than you can poke a stick at.
In one of the year’s most popular events, Hyde Park gets its Asian hawker-style market on (complete with authentic massive crowds) during 13 nights in spring. Get to the Night Noodle Markets as early as you possibly can (even with extended hours) after work and grab some noodles, dumplings, and Asian desserts. There are three bars to quench your thirst and entertainment including something to do with a lucky Chinese lion. And if lines aren’t your thing, you can book the Noodle Box, a rustic pop-up Malay village cafe, created by Chinta Ria (which luckily has its own bar).
The pop-ups and parties also aren’t to be missed, including a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party from the Studio Neon team, involving a three-course themed dinner in a secret warehouse location. Paris’s Diner en Blanc will allow you to get your best whites on with a glamorous public picnic. This is no ordinary picnic, as they insist that you bring a feast, to be eaten off white linen, with silverware, napery, glassware, and proper chairs. White bow tie anyone?
