This is certainly an event you can sink your teeth in – and it’s heading our way.
From Plate Dates to Secret Gin experiences, posh pop ups to seafood festivals, natural wine masterclasses to night noodle markets and so much more, it’s only one week until the inaugural Newcastle Food Month kicks off in the heart of the Hunter.
Showcasing New South Wales’ second largest city’s vibrant food scene, the month-long program is brimming with festivities expected to attract foodies from all over the state.
And, the signature “dish” so to speak, Newcastle’s premiere of the posh Parisienne Pop Up, Le Diner en Blanc, will steal the show on Saturday 10 April.
The secret location will be revealed en route to the anticipated 1000-strong contingent.
They’ll then converge on one of the city’s scenic outdoor spaces at once, donning all white from clothing to table wear.
What’s more, there are still a few tickets available.
Simply jump onto newcastle.dinerenblanc.com, enter your email address, validate and register for phase three.
But, don’t delay, ticket sales close on 4 April.
The best way to eat your way through the city next month is to hop on a ‘Plate Date’.
More than 60 local restaurants, bars, pubs and cafes have all designed a Newcastle Food Month dish and paired it with a beverage for only $25.
Start your day with hotcakes and coffee for two at Edmonds & Co or finish it with beetroot-cured kingfish and a glass of Thomas Wines Semillon at Nagisa.
At $25, you’d be mad not to make it a Plate Date in Newcastle this April.
