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 kinds anywhere in Australia, this annual celebration of artisan food and natural wine will once again bring together top farmers, chefs, producers and winemakers with hungry, thirsty members of the public.
"We're excited to present the return of Rootstock Sydney at Carriageworks for its third year," said Carriageworks Director Lisa Havilah. "This world-class event is an opportunity for visitors to engage first-hand with some of the best chefs and creative leaders in the food and wine industry."
It all goes down on the last weekend of November. Partnering up with the regular Carriageworks Farmers Market, the free-to-attend Rootstock Sydney Food Market will focus on native food and produce. A showcase of ethnic-Australian food and pop-up bars serving orange wine, sake and wild ferment beers will also be on offer.
Running alongside the market will be the Rootstock Wine Festival. The ticketed event will highlight naturally farmed wines, with more than 200 varieties available to taste.
On top of all the eating and drinking you'll be doing, there'll also be ample opportunity to feed your brain. Rootstock Sydney 2016 will feature talks by producers, chefs, educators, sommeliers and more. No more two minute noodle dinners for us!
Rootstock Sydney 2016 will be held at Carriageworks on November 25-26. For more information visit the Rootstock website.
