There’s an end of week shake-up about to hit Chippendale’s Cafe Giulia. After five years of supplying ethical and sustainable produce to the hospitality industry, making the best available to the public at their Friday and Saturday food market as well as championing eco-catering, Urban Food Market is launching weekly dinners.

Every Friday and Saturday night, the Urban Food Market team will take over the kitchens at Cafe Giulia for a weekly, seasonal cook-up that will include dishes like confit salmon with tahini yoghurt and twice-cooked free-range pork with crackling and Waldorf salad. It’s something of a logical extension to the cooking lessons and dinners that have been so popular at their Marrickville base "This has been in the planning for quite a while now and the opportunity to work with such a wonderful establishment as Cafe Giulia fits us perfectly,” says Tim Elwin, Urban Food Market managing director.

"We'll be serving up the same exceptional quality our customers are used to from our longstanding Meatup degustation dinners, but in a more relaxed environment with an à la carte format,” he continues. “This seems like a natural progression for us and we are really looking forward to getting started."

Due to launch on May 3, the dinners will showcase the team’s ethical approach to food, which includes working closely with producers to source direct from farmers and to keeping waste to an extreme minimum. They guarantee that there were no cages, no hormones and no feedlots used in the produce that populates their menu and that all animals are 100 per cent free-range and grass-fed.

Bookings are available and it’s a great chance to eat well, with a nod to both sustainable and ethical practices.

Urban Food Market’s Friday and Saturday night dinners launch May 3, 5.30pm–10pm.
