Upcoming events

It's been lamented by many a foodblogger that we really do require more event reminders.

So here's a quick snapshot of upcoming events both online, on The Box and out and about in Sydney's autumnal sunshine...

FRIDAY 27 MAY 2005
Feast - 7.30pm-8.00pm on SBS
"This eight-part series is a lush and colourful glimpse into Indian culture, food and customs, presented by English-born chef, Barry Vera. Vera savours the delights of simple street food and the amazing variety of tantalizing regional cuisine. From a Sikh temple kitchen in Delhi, where up to 70,000 meals are served each day, to a tribal desert village in Rajasthan, a traditional village wedding in Ghanerao, to a heady cardamom auction on the Malabar coast, to Mumbai's chaotic beach carnivals, and the eerie silence of a salt mine in Baap Rin; Vera immerses himself in the diverse cultural influences that make each area of India so distinct. The series is produced by Mike Dickinson. (From Australia, in English)"

    Well just couldn't hold out any longer! Just had to say I'm so glad I found this site! Thanks for putting up the Up and Coming events. Stumbled to the Sydney Italian Festival site and *bang*, it instantly made my weekend. Looking forward to checking out the Italian Design Living Exhibition.
    Keep up the great blog, you've got yourself a new fan.

    nice watch, though i would have liked a more in-depth look at the food part.

    a couple of gulab jamun would REALLY hit the spot!

    Hey, thanks so much for posting this! I almost forgot about EoMEoTE until I read your timely reminder. :)

    Hi Clare Eats - Yeah there's a whole potential of things to start up. I thought there was definitely a need to establish an Aussie food bloggers ring though.

    As for the Iron Chef omission - doh! In my defence the next week was more a flag of things-to-keep-an-eye-out-for.

    Hi Sarah - Ahh there are delicious things to do everywhere I'm sure.

    We're about to head into winter. It's definitely getting colder, but by that I mean 10C in the morning, which I know is pathetic by Northern standards.

    I just posted my D&D entry. Except it was a kinda non-entry. But hopefully you can still include it.

    Hi Pinkcocoa - haha. Goddess? I wish.

    Glad to be of service though. My existence on this Earth has henceforth been justified.

    Hi Vegemite - Glad you like the site! Hope you enjoyed the Syd Italian Festival. I briefly went along to the Italian National Day celebrations--photos to come shortly.

    Keep up the comments. It does reassure and please me so, to have people getting something out of it.

    Hi Juji - How was Feast? I was out on Fri nite and our VCR antenna doesn't quite pick up SBS which is highly annoying. I'm definitely intent on catching the next ep.

    Hi Julia - Yay. Glad to be of service. I still have yet to post my entry. Eeek. Been busy busy busy.
