36 of the country’s best local and export chefs under one roof, over one weekend
IMG has announced an impressive 36-chef line-up for Taste of Sydney Collective, presented by Electrolux: an immersive four-day food festival blending food, culture and music.
Set to completely transform The Cutaway in Barangaroo from 8–11 November, Taste of Sydney Collective will feature never-before-seen collaborations with world-renowned international chefs, local Sydney favourites and interstate superstars to create unique dishes and an electrifying environment for foodies who are seeking something new.
Award-winning Sydney chef, and curator of the chef line-up, Mark Best has handpicked a roster of extraordinary homegrown international talent, including: Skye Gyngell of Spring (London), Louis Tikaram of E.P. & L.P (Los Angeles), David Thompson of Long Chim (Sydney) previously of Nahm (Bangkok) and Jessi Singh, who is back on Australian soil from the USA and soon to launch Don’t Tell Aunty in Sydney. Interstate chefs feature heavily with stand outs including Duncan Welgemod of Africola in Adelaide, Joel Valvasori of Lulu La Delizia in Perth and Matt Stone of Oakridge Wines in Coldstream, Victoria. Melbourne favourites are Victor Liong of Lee Ho Fook; Thi Le of Anchovy; Lauren Eldridge, Marque alumni; and Jerry Mai of Annam.
A roll call of Sydney’s biggest names feature on the program including Joel Bickford of Aria, Joachim Borenius of Mjolner, Cory Campbell of Bea, Flavio Carnevale of MARTA, Rob Cockerill of Bennelong, Ben Greeno of The Paddington, Hotel Centennial, Mitch Orr of ACME, Somer Sivrioglu of Anason, Claire Van Vuuren of Bloodwood and David Wright of Buon Ricordo.
Billed as a stand out feature of the festival will be two double-story, open-plan spaces, the Electrolux Collective Kitchens, which will host a daily roster of eight chefs each serving two dishes exclusive to Taste of Sydney Collective; that’s 64 never-before-seen dishes over four days, the ultimate foodie feast.
