Carriageworks and Vivid Sydney today announced the lineup of chefs and creative team for Sydney Table, a series of bespoke dining experiences staged over four nights from 14-17 June at The Clothing Store.
Sydney Table pairs some of New South Wales’ leading chefs with creative elements from contemporary music to art and design, promising an unforgettable dining experience. Curated by Carriageworks Farmers Market Creative Director Mike McEnearney, the participating chefs are:
O Tama Carey (Lankan Filling Station), Wednesday 14 June 2017
Clayton Wells (Automata), Thursday 15 June 2017
James Viles (Biota), Friday 16 June 2017
Ben Sears (Moon Park), Saturday 17 June 2017
Following a sold-out series of Sydney Table in 2016, Mike McEnearney joins forces with creative director Tony Assness to pair a fresh lineup of some of Australia’s most respected chefs with artists, designers and musicians, up close and in their element at The Clothing Store, home to Carriageworks’ recently announced Artist Studio Program. Lee Tran Lam will serve as Master of Ceremonies for each of the dinners.
Against the backdrop of an industrial heritage setting, diners will feast on the talents of some of NSW’s top chefs and creatives, drawing inspiration from fresh, locally sourced produce to create a sensational menu with matched wine and premium beverages by Scotchmans Hill, Asahi Super Dry, VOSS Artesian Water from Norway and Archie Rose Distilling Co.
Carriageworks Director Lisa Havilah said: “After a hugely popular launch in 2016, we are thrilled to remount Sydney Table for Vivid Sydney 2017. The series of intimate dinners will celebrate the synergy between some of the most exciting food players and creative forces from Sydney and surrounds, to create an exceptional and unrepeatable experience for diners.”
Carriageworks Farmers Market Creative Director Mike McEnearney said: “We have sought to bring together the best of food and art in one room, providing a meeting of the minds. Seasonal produce sourced from the Carriageworks Farmers Market will provide the palette for a singular culinary experience, offering diners the opportunity to explore their gastronomical and artistic curiosity in one setting. It will be akin to a dinner party in the green room with your favourite chef and creative.”
