Have you ever thought you could easily step in for Matt Preston on Masterchef Australia? Or are you a budding writer or photographer with a love of food so great you're just itching to start writing about Australia's best restaurants and bars? If so, head to the Vibe Hotel Sydney in the CBD on Thursday, July 25, with a notebook and pen in hand, and prepare to be schooled in being a food critic.
Renowned Aussie food critic and editor Grant Jones (Chef's Garage, The Daily Telegraph) will be hosting a one-off dinner and food critic masterclass geared toward teaching you how to review and flat lay like a pro. Set up in the hotel's Storehouse Sydney Café Central and Bar from 6.30pm, the workshop will teach you how to taste and write about food like a critic, as well as perfecting the craft of social media snaps.
Dishes will be served share-style with pizza to start, followed by Cone Bay barramundi, beef flank or basil pesto penne pasta. For dessert, the kitchen will whip up zabaglione trifle and chocolate semifreddo. If you're vegan, there'll also be a plant-based menu available on request.
It'll cost you $45 all up, including food, drinks and all the tasting tips you can imagine from a restaurant reviewing master.
The Vibe Hotel Sydney's Copy the Critic will run from 6.30–9pm on Thursday, July 25. Tickets can be purchased here.
