Event Details

Join Maeve for a delightful exploration of the hardworking food artisans and distillers in the back streets of Marrickville.

Thursday is production day and we start with a freshly roasted coffee then see the magic of burrata being made alongside fresh ricotta, and taste buffalo mozzarella and fetta; enjoy a signature gin and tonic at an artisan distillery; visit an ethical Butcher; have lunch at the retro Lucky Prawn Restaurant at the Bob Hawke Leisure Centre; sample some delicious gelato…and there’s more. A walking tour delving into food traditions from around the world. Limited numbers. Fitness – you’ll walk over 2 kilometres during this safari so you do need to be mobile.

Tour meets in Marrickville


  • seeing an Italian father and son cheesemaking team create burrata
  • taste warm, naturally sweet just-made ricotta and ice-cream
  • learn some of the key ingredients that will sparkle up your cooking repertoire
  • sneaky artisan gin tasting too!
  • truly a food lover’s dream

    We all had a fabulous day yesterday in Marrickville with Maeve, this was my 2nd visit and I loved it just as much as the first – my taste buds are still dancing!! We loved the individual stories as much as the food!

    This is some of the feedback from our group:

    Kathy, thanks so much for organising the tour yesterday – what a great idea and great tour – I loved it! So inspiring seeing so many artisans, craftsmen and ‘have a go’ entrepreneurs doing something worthwhile..Thank you for inviting me along…Clare

    A fabulous day! Great fun – Wynette

How does a gift certificate work?

Our Gourmet Safaris gift certificates are valid for 12 months and can be used on any of our safaris. You can nominate part or all of the amount of a safari. Safaris range in price from $130 to $165. Bookings can then be made online ​or over the phone ​by calling (02) 8969 6555 by the recipient using the gift certificate number.

Do I have to nominate which tour my friend receiving the certificate attends?

No – the beauty of this system is that you give your friend an inspired present and they can choose which Safari and date​ suits them.

Do I need to be vaccinated to do a tour?

Yes, we require all our attendees to be fully vaccinated

Can I buy gift certificates for more than one person at a time?

Of course. This often happens around Christmas and is easily done in one transaction. You will have a Continue Shopping prompt and be able to fill in details for as many as you’d like.

Why do you need my friend’s mobile number and email address?

This just makes it easier for us if you would like the certificate sent by us to the recipient with your message.

Can I change my booking?

Our terms are “bookings are final at time of payment” but if we receive sufficient notification we can usually make changes for you. (Obviously the more notification the better). Unfortunately if we are notified in the week leading up to the tour, we would be unable to change/cancel/transfer your booking (unless we have people on a wait list and they are able to attend). Bookings are transferrable so if you are unable to attend you can transfer the booking to someone else.


Why are Gourmet Safaris Gift certificates the perfect gift?

We find most people treasure experiences over gathering more stuff. A Gourmet Safari opens up new and delicious worlds and is always a fun day out, whether people are dedicated cooks or just love exploring new flavours and places.

Does Safaris director Maeve attend all the safaris?

As many as she can but each safari is led by experienced guides who have grown up with the food you’ll be exploring. Many live in the neighbourhoods the safaris visit which gives our tours a unique edge. You’re welcome to email or call Safaris manager Suzy to check which safaris Maeve will be attending. or 02 8969 6555.
