Feast for the Senses
Food, art, storytelling and technology come together in an avant-garde new dining experience that’s part-food festival, part-immersive experience.
Over four days, it’s taking over Greenwood Plaza in North Sydney for a food festival with a difference. And with a name like Feast for the Senses, expect more than just your tastebuds tickled.
There are three different multi-sensory zones with separate themes and matching visuals, lights, sounds, food and performance art. Enter a fairytale world in Once Upon a Time, with spaghetti and meatballs by celebrity chef Nelly Robinson of Nel inspired by Lady and the Tramp, pork belly croquettes and a blackberry sour mocktail.
Explore outer space in the second room, with a blueberry vanilla Dry Tai in one hand and either a UFO burger or Saturn hotdog in the other. And plunge into the icy cold Sub Zero zone and for buttermilk fried chicken with snow chilli mayo and a Hellfire Mojito mocktail.
Former Masterchef contestant Renae Smith is also making hot cookie-dough-s’mores toasties, and Robinson is serving a “melted Olaf” carrot cake with mandarin and yoghurt.
Funds raised by Feast for the Senses will go to Plate It Forward, the social enterprise behind Enmore restaurant Colombo Social and new CBD diner Kabul Social. Proceeds will be used to support and feed people going through food insecurity.
It’s taking place over two weekends, from 4.30pm to 10pm each night. Entry is free and food can be bought directly on-site, or you can pre-purchase food and drink tokens for discounts.
