TASTE OF SYDNEY GETS UNDERWAY.   The annual “foodie” event held in Centennial Park, was a washout on its opening night.  Due to open on Thursday 8 March, the outdoor function was a victim of Sydney’s torrential rain which caused flooding all over the city.  Fortunately on Friday the sun came out and the event was open for business.

Many of Sydney’s well known restaurants such as Otto, Longrain and Flying Fish participate in this outdoor event where diners can purchase a tasting plate for a fraction of the cost to dine in the actual restaurant.  Cooking demonstrations by many well known chefs are scheduled throughout the day and evening.

Wine tastings, cocktail making classes and food samplings all add to the mix plus the stalls selling gourmet produce to take home.  We purchased an array of goodies and some Italian wines, my arms were aching carrying them home.  Perhaps more lights could have illuminated the road to the main gates of the Park.

Taste of Sydney closes on Sunday 11 March at 5 p.m. so make sure you hurry over to the Park.  Sandra T.
