For the month of October some of the best chefs from around the globe visited the sunny harbour of Sydney for the annual Crave International Food Festival. This year there was an emphasis on Italian cuisine, with Massimo Bottura, one of the highest ranking chefs in Italy, on top of the all-star line-up.
To begin the festival, the World Chef Showcase was held at Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre. The ultimate food-lovers’ weekend brought together some of the finest culinary talents for a weekend of presentations, cooking demonstrations, talks and tastings. Over 2,500 dishes were served over the weekend.
Although I wasn’t able to make it, as the culinary ambassador for the Centre, it was wonderful to see them given the opportunity to hold this high profile event.
Some highlights included talks and cooking presentations by Massimo Bottura, Antonio Carluccio and Darren Purchese from Burch&Purchese Sweet Studio in Melbourne.
