Parklands Food Fest is returning to western Sydney with a lineup of some of the city's best chefs and food trucks. The festival, which is now in its seventh year, will feature MasterChef Australia's Matt Preston, who'll take to the stage to recreate dishes from both his recent and his upcoming cookbooks.
As well as the high-profile culinary maestro, there will be over 50 food stalls, serving up everything from Egyptian, Vietnamese and Filipino food to savoury meals, baked treats and desserts. Or, grab something to take home with you at the fresh produce markets, which'll be bigger than ever — complete with an Urban Farms stall where you can taste fresh-grown produce on the spot.
Throw in makers' workshops to teach you a new skill or two, plenty of craft beer to wet your whistle and live music as the soundtrack, and you won't be hungry, thirsty or bored. Just mark Saturday, September 8 in your diary, and head on down to Abbotsbury's Lizard Log ampitheatre.
