After Sydney City Limits revealed its first food line-up earlier this year, one thing became clear: music festivals are serving better food than ever before.
There’s now further incentive to buy a ticket (if you don’t care for Phoenix, Beck or one of the other 30 or so acts on the bill, that is): the chance to eat more food from this city’s top chefs.
Curated by the team behind Mary’s, the second menu line-up has been released – and it’s good.
Natural-wine enthusiasts behind Newtown’s P&V Wine and Liquor Merchants, Mike Bennie (Rootstock) and Lou Dowling of Mary’s, will be hosting a natural-wine party (with natural wine on tap), while Longrain will serve South East Asian-style curries with noodle dishes.
Chef O Tama Carey is bringing her Sri Lankan hoppers to the event; from eggplant with kefir mascarpone and pickled green chillies; to saucy lamb hoppers topped with pol sambol. Tamarind cordial and love cake will also be on offer.
Potts Point institution Fratelli Paradiso’s hand-rolled busiate pasta with smashed meatballs in a rich tomato sauce will also make an appearance, alongside a vegetarian version with eggplant.
