Sydney goes Italian

Sydney Italian Festival
19th May – 8th June 2009

When a Sydneysider thinks of Italy they think of leather, Lamborghini, linguine and Leichhardt. Not content with merely a slice of little Italy, the Sydney hotspot is leading the celebrations and painting the town red, white and green this week for the 2009 Sydney Italian Festival.

Sydney goes ItalianItalian restaurants across Sydney are offering inspired dining experiences for the duration of the Festival and the calendar boasts a diverse mix of events with food & wine, art & culture, film & fashion.

What I love about this Festival is how you can choose to immerse yourself in workshops exploring the finer details of Italian culture or simply indulge in the very best it has to offer. One of the most enticing events is Weekend Italiano A Tavola, a weekend of interactive workshops including gnocchi making, coffee, art, language skills and yoga.

Visit the Sydney Italian Festival site and conveniently add events of interest to your planner – a smart way to ensure you get to experience as much as possible. My planner currently includes the Italian antipasto tasting plate at GPO Sydney; the Italian Connection Rally; Viva Leichhardt Short Film Festival and the Casa Barilla Masterclass, just to name a few.
