Crave Sydney International Food Festival

October is always a big month with some fantastic food events, not only in and around the city, but around the state as well, and we have some very special events lined up.

Let’s Do Lunch

If you have ever wondered what real home made pasta is meant to taste like then our Let’s do Lunch Baby Octopus Tagliatelle is the perfect opportunity. Available every lunch throughout October – maximum seating of 6 per table. See more details on the right.

100 Mile Challenge

October 30 sees Lucio as Chef Mentor for the 100 Mile Challenge South Coast Team. Lunch for 500 at Eveleigh will be quite the challenge indeed.

"Enjoying our holiday house at Mollymook for many years, I have observed firsthand the gentle, but steady, transformation to today’s growing number of enthusiastic food artisans, sustainable produce farmers & excellent cafes and restaurants that are now readily found in the beautiful unspoilt natural environment that is the South Coast."

CIRA Gala Dinner

October 31 CIRA Gala Dinner at Doltone House in Pyrmont is not to be missed. The closing event of the CRAVE Festival this year, the menu has been created by CIRA’s talented younger generation of Italian chefs. MC’d by the very entertaining Simon Marnie of ABC 702 we have no doubt it will be a truly remarkable evening.
