Rootstock Sydney 2017
Carriageworks' two-day artisan food and wine festival returns.
Like food, wine and good conversation? You'll find all three at Rootstock Sydney when it returns to Carriageworks this November. One of the largest events of its kind anywhere in Australia, this annual celebration of artisan food and wine will once again bring together top farmers, chefs, producers and winemakers with hungry, thirsty members of the public.
It all goes down on the last weekend of November. Some of the chefs expected to take part include Kylie Kwong (Billy Kwong), Monty Koludrovic (Icebergs Dining Room and Bar) and David Moyle (LongSong). As always, there'll also be a focus on sustainable food practices – in fact they've even gone so far as to launch the Rootstock Collective Kitchen, "a sustainable kitchen designed to run with a minimal impact on the environment".
"This year the food will evolve throughout the day," says co-founder Giorgio De Maria. "We're collaborating with chefs from across the country with very different styles and we're incorporating indigenous foods which naturally flows on from the event's focus on sustainability."
On top of all the eating and drinking you'll be doing, there'll also be ample opportunity to feed your brain. Rootstock Sydney 2017 will feature talks by producers, chefs, educators and more. No more two minute noodle dinners for us!
