One of the longest standing and most successful food and wine fairs in Australia will once again take place in Sydney’s Hyde Park on Saturday 27 October as part of The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Month.
Now in its 17th year, the 2007 event will build on the success and popularity of years past with a best ever line-up of top restaurants and wine companies.
Taking place in Hyde Park North, with food and wines being served from midday, the Sydney Food & Wine Fair is, without doubt, an astonishing showcase of the diversity and excellence that makes up the Sydney dining experience, and incorporating premium offerings from some of the best vineyards and wine companies in the country.
Reflecting recent changes to the infrastructure of chief beneficiary, The AIDS Trust of Australia, this year’s Sydney Food & Wine Fair, has undergone a subtle shake-up with a view to raising the benchmark on what is already a prestigious and premium event.
“Sydney Food & Wine Fair is a brilliant institution, and its unwavering popularity is a testament to the quality of the food and wine on offer, as well as the efficiency with which the event runs – which this year promises to be the best ever”, said Peter Gilmour of Quay Restaurant.
“It is also an extremely important platform to raise much-needed funds and awareness in the continuing fight against HIV/AIDS, and the support of such high profile names as Guillaume Brahimi, Martin Boetz and Sean Moran continues as a great show of strength and commitment to the cause.”
Already committed to the 2007 Sydney Food & Wine Fair are such leading establishments as Guillaume at Bennelong, Quay, Salon Blanc, Sailor’s Thai, Otto, Buon Ricordo, Flying Fish, Lo Studio, Sean’s Panaroma and Longrain to name a few.
Keeping the fun and festivities rolling well into the late afternoon, two entertainment zones including the main Breville Piazza Stage will crackle with live performances, DJs, and special guest stars, all woven together by the ever popular and talented MC in the form of Miss Claire de Lune.
With coupon sales benefitting The AIDS Trust of Australia – food plates start @ $5 and glasses of wine @ $2.50 – and with net proceeds going to the care and support of those living with HIV/AIDS, this year’s Sydney Food & Wine Fair should be marked as a “must do” on the calendars of all with a taste for fun and fine food.
For 2007, coupons will be available in advance via the AIDS Trust (www.aidstrust.com.au) for those wishing to avoid any potential queues on the day. Also, in a further upgrading, EFTPOS facilities will be operational in Hyde Park on the day for coupon purchase.
