Local Food Safaris

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; you’ll taste smallgoods fresh from the smokehouse; enjoy a signature gin and tonic at an artisan distillery, see behind the scenes at the acclaimed Stix Café where we enjoy lunch with produce direct from the farm; taste the delights of a food emporium all the top chefs know and there’s more.

Well where do we start? What a fantastic day! We just wanted to pass on a huge thankyou to Maeve, Kit & all of the wonderful, knowledgeable producers that were so generous with their time today. Start to finish the day was perfect! Such a fun, interesting day out with the opportunity to discover the talents & taste of Marrickville. A day out in Sydney exploring an area that is so abundant in quality locally made produce that is mindfully sourced. What a treat!

What also made the day so enjoyable was the passion & devotion that all of the producers have for their trade, promoting a happy, healthy work place.

Maeve & Kit, such a delight to meet you both. We look forward to seeing you soon when we book our next Food Safari - S&R
