STAY RIGHT WHERE YOU are be­cause this month the best lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional chefs in Aus­tralia are call­ing Syd­ney’s Hyde Park home. Cel­e­brat­ing 20 years, Syd­ney’s Good Food Month is sure to be mon­u­men­tal this year. Hyde Park Palms, Good Food Month’s vi­brant pop up restau­rant, will re­turn and is set to host an ar­ray of foodie feasts and con­ver­sa­tions whilst the Night Noo­dle Mar­kets make a mouth-wa­ter­ing re­turn.

Good Food Month cel­e­brates the in­flu­en­tial chefs and restau­rants that have shaped Aus­tralia’s culi­nary sphere. It also seeks to cel­e­brate new and emerg­ing play­ers in the culi­nary world with events like the Young Chefs Lunch (21 Oc­to­ber). Join renowned 22-year-old chef Is­abella Poti for an Ital­ian ban­quet (6 Oc­to­ber) or cel­e­brate the tal­ented women of the culi­nary world with a de­li­cious feast (18 Oc­to­ber).

Kick off the fes­ti­val with Good Food Month’s 20th birthday party. Lucky at­ten­dees will get the chance to party like its 1998 with leg­endary Aus­tralian chefs Chris­tine Mansfield, Neil Perry and Ross Lusted.

This year will have vis­i­tors strug­gling to de­cide which events to at­tend with a jam-packed pro­gram. Aus­tralian foodie he­roes Neil Perry, Bill Granger, Chris­tine Mansfield, Stephanie Alexander and Ross Lusted will all hold court in the Hyde Park Palms with con­ver­sa­tions run­ning through­out the month.

Ev­ery­thing up to and in­clud­ing South­ern Cal­i­for­nian Cui­sine can be found at Syd­ney’s Good Food Month this year. Iconic chef Ja­son Neroni will team up with "Masterchef" con­sul­tant Monty Kolu­drovic to present a menu of canapés along­side a scrump­tious graz­ing sta­tion (12 Oc­to­ber). The best of the lo­cal coun­try­side will be

com­ing to Syd­ney to cel­e­brate re­gional cui­sine. Phil Wood of Point Leo Es­tate, Emma Mc­gaskill from Ade­laide’s The Pot and Ben Devlin of Pa­per Daisy will be pro­vid­ing the goods (13 Oc­to­ber).

The lovely peo­ple be­hind the month­long fes­ti­val have done all the think­ing for you when it comes to Date Night (5 Oc­to­ber). The recipe for a great date night is al­ways the same: de­li­cious food, a film that gets you right in the feels and a scoop of the best ar­ti­sanal ice cream in town. This year, at­ten­dees will be treated to a screen­ing of “10 Things I Hate About You” along­side Ume Burg­ers sig­na­ture dish and Cow & The Moon Gelato.

Load up on carbs with the re­turn of Pasta Bat­tle (11 Oc­to­ber). The four-course din­ner will be served up by tal­ented chefs from some of Aus­tralia’s lead­ing Ital­ian restau­rants in­clud­ing Fed­erico Zanel­lato, Fed­er­ica An­drisani and Joel Val­va­sori-pereza.

For­tu­nately, the much-loved Night Noo­dle Mar­kets are re­turn­ing for three weeks be­tween 4–21 Oc­to­ber, so you can sam­ple the 40 de­li­cious stalls or keep re­turn­ing for your favourites. En­joy a host of del­i­ca­cies from the likes of Gelato Messina, Mr Bao, Donut Papi, Chur Burger and more. There will be dancers, DJS and live mu­sic so you can stay all night.

A host of events will also take place through­out var­i­ous restau­rants across Syd­ney. The Let’s Do Lunch pro­gram hosted by Peter Lehman Wines of the Barossa will serve up $45 lunch of­fer­ings whilst lead­ing restau­rants across Syd­ney will host their own cu­rated events as part of Friends of Good Food Month.
