This August Sydney’s top Italian chefs and restaurants are getting together to celebrate the wonders of Italian food and wine at the Cutaway, Barangaroo Reserve.
The city’s best Italian chefs will be serving up all kinds of Italian delights, with Sydney locals Giovanni Pilu (Pilu at Freshwater), Lucio Galletto (Lucio’s), Stefano Manfredi (Pizzaperta), Johnny di Francesco (400 Gradi), Nino Zoccali (Pendolino), Richard Ptacnik (Otto Ristorante) and Federico Zanellato (LuMi) cooking up a storm. You’ll find pop-up restaurants from Otto Ristorante, Lot.1 Sydney, 400 Gradi, Balla and Popolo alongside cooking demonstrations with chefs and providores alike on the Smeg Main Stage.
There will also be a marketplace featuring speciality cheese and meat stalls, pizza, pasta and gelato. You can even pick up an Italian cookbook to test your culinary skills at home.
For the wine lovers, there will be the opportunity to taste over 200 Italian wines by region as well as try Italian-centric Aussie wines at their Italian Wine Masterclass. Not a wine drinker? Espresso di Manfredi’s baristas have you sorted or try a Moretti Beer or Negroni and Spritz cocktail at the Festival Bar.
