In Canberra, we don’t cry because Summer’s over, we smile because the change in season marks the beginning of Good Food Month.
It has kicked off with a bang at the beloved Night Noodle Markets on 1 – 10th of March but it doesn’t just end there. There’s loads in store to keep you salivating all month long.
We have put together 6 experiences for die-hard foodies to let off some serious food envy on your socials.
Agostinis | Pranzo Italiano, every day in March
Throughout March, Agostinis is offering a selection of their delicious house-made pasta or pizzas to enjoy with fresh salad and a glass of TAP wine (they are on a mission to prevent bottles going to landfill).
Canberra Wine Week | Launch Tasting Festival – 30 March
It’s not only about the food, Good Food Month is celebrating the launch of Canberra District’s Wine Week with more than 50 wines on offer at the annual Wine Tasting event – hosted in the beautiful courtyard at New Acton. From 2pm to 6pm, guests can collect the Canberra Wines ‘Tasting Glass’ and embark on a taste of their ‘liquid geography’.
Chifley’s Bar & Grill | The Butchers Block – every day in March
Internationally renowned executive head chef Saju Rajappan will be sourcing locally produced cuts straight from the butcher’s block throughout March. Chef Rajappan will then be using his expertise to cook these cuts to perfection.
National Arboretum Canberra | The Master and Apprentices – 14 March
A one-off spectacular night to celebrate the mastery of Cheong Liew’s incredible cooking through an evening of canapes and a four-course dinner with matched wines. Good Food Month chef Adam Liaw is such a fan of chef Liew’s cooking that he asked him to be a guest on his television show. Chef Liew has been honoured as one of the ten hottest chefs alive by the prestigious American Food & Wine Magazine and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in the World Food Media Awards. He was also awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in the 1999 Queen’s Birthday Honours “for service to the food and restaurant industry through involvement in developing and influencing the style of contemporary Australian cuisine.”
Sage Dining Rooms | OzHarvest for Good Food Week – 5-9 March
Sage believes that everyone should have access to good food, so for Good Food Month, they are excited to be partnering with Australia’s leading food rescue charity, OzHarvest! Between 5 and 9 February, Sage Dining Rooms will be donating 25% from each meal sold to help bring good food to those who need it most.
Monster Kitchen & Bar | Curley Flatt’s: French Saloon Meets the Monster
Where the French Saloon meets the Monster! This is an incredible collaboration, resulting in a spectacular four-course menu and canapes designed by Ian Curley of French Saloon and Daniel Flatt of Monster Kitchen & Bar. Each superb course will be served with matching wines by winemaker Matt Harrod from Curly Flat wines.
