Every year across ten days, FOOD (Food of Orange District) Week shows off the best mouthwatering fare from 'The Food Basket' of New South Wales, including the best local produce, chefs and restaurants, as well as cool-climate wines.
Kickstart your salivating at the FOOD Week Night Market with food and wine from over 50 stalls, or head to FOOD HQ to pick the brains of local farmers, chefs and providores and buy their produce directly from them.
If you need a lift to Orange from Sydney, hop aboard the FOOD Train. Departing from Central Station, you'll embark on a weekend-long journey filled with tasting menus, outdoor lunches and gourmet brunches. You'll also hear from local producers, explaining how their food gets from paddock to plate.
There are several more gourmet experiences to be had during the week in Orange, including FORAGE, a gentle 4.1-kilometre walk through vineyards and paddocks with wine tasting and a nine-course degustation made with local produce along the way, and the Sunday Producers' Market in Cook Park, where local produce will be turned into breakfasts and brunches on the spot. There's also the inaugural Autumn Grazing Dinner with guest chef Alex Kearns from Glebe Point Diner. Enjoy the experience of wandering through Blayney while sampling local produce and wine and dancing the night away
