Festival of Nonna 2017
A series of Italian rooftop feasts and cooking classes with Sydney chefs and their mums.
Every Italian will tell you that no one cooks like their nonna — and to prove that claim true, some of Sydney's best Italian chefs and their grandmothers are teaming up for a five-day festival of Italian deliciousness.
Running from October 22–26, the Festival of Nonna will be a celebration of the traditional matriarchs of the Boot, with a series of three-course dinners at Redfern's 107 Projects. Presented by Sandhurst Fine Foods, it will show off the modern interpretation of Italian food coupled with the tried-and-tested traditions that make the cuisine so damn good.
Sydney chef and restaurateur Andrew Cibej (of 121BC, Berta and Vini fame) is among the chefs that will be teaming up with their mums, along with Eugenio Maiale of A Tavola and Luca Ciano of Milan's two Michelin-starred Il Luogo di Aimo e Nadia. They'll deliver hands-on demonstrations that show off the tradition and the techniques of crafting the perfect Italian meal.
Tickets for the dinners are $65 a pop, which includes three courses with drinks and a sweet party bag.
