From Plate Dates to Secret Gin events, posh pop ups to seafood festivals, natural wine masterclasses to night noodle markets and so much more, its only one week until the inaugural Newcastle Food Month kicks off in the heart of the Hunter.
Showcasing New South Wales’ second largest city’s vibrant food scene, the month long program is brimming with events expected to attract foodies from all over the state.
And the signature event, Newcastle’s premiere of the posh Parisienne Pop Up, Le Diner en Blanc will steal the show on Saturday 10th April. The secret location will be revealed en route to the anticipated 1000 strong contingent who will converge on one of the city’s scenic outdoor spaces at once, donning all white from clothing to table wear, and this sophisticated white party. What’s more there are still a few tickets available simply jump onto newcastle.dinerenblanc.com, enter your email address, validate and register for Phase 3. But don’t delay, ticket sales close on 4 April.
The best way to eat your way through the city this April is to hop on a ‘Plate Date’. 60-plus local restaurants, bars, pubs and cafes have all designed a Newcastle Food Month dish and paired it with a beverage for only $25. Start your day with hotcakes and coffee for two at Edmonds & Co or finish it with Beetroot cured Kingfish and a glass of Thomas Wines Semillon at Nagisa. At $25 you’d be mad not to make it a Plate Date in Newcastle this April.
