Last year’s Campsie Food Festival was sooo much fun. Imagine a festival that features great food from the different cultures in Sydney, it was both fun and delicious.  Last year was noodlies, Sydney food blog’s first year as the official food blogger for the event and I’m glad to say the wonderful association continues this year.  Check out my video round-up of last year’s Festival.

In fact, this year, I’m MC’ing the eating competition on the Kitchen Stage at 2pm.  And I promise fun and frivolity! Why don’t you come along? Full program here.  Some of the great local restaurants have got stalls at the Festival, like Albee’s Kitchen, I visited there only last wek, check out the noodlies post on Albee’s Kitchen Malaysian restaurant.

The Mayor of the City of Canterbury, Cr Brian Robson, said he is looking forward to some delicious international cuisine being cooked up on the new Kitchen stage at the 2012 Campsie Food Festival, on Saturday 2nd June from 10am-4pm.

“Now in its 13th year, the Campsie Food Festival has become an opportunity for food lovers to satisfy their cravings and their appetite for foods from all over the world,” Mayor Brian Robson said.

“When people aren’t working over their taste buds at the food stalls lining Beamish Street they should be at our new Kitchen stage in Anzac Mall for some great cooking demonstrations and food tasting.

“One of the highlights at the Kitchen stage will be renowned Korean chef Heather Jeong as she prepares a stunning version of Bi Bim Bap that will feed the big crowd, as well as Korean favourites Bulgogi and Pajun which have made her cooking classes popular with local and international visitors.

“Heather is a real magician when it comes to preparing great Korean food, so all those tastebuds lucky enough to be in the audience are in for a tantalising treat.

“Food artist and Chinese chef Charlie Yan will be on hand to wow the audience with his award-winning fruit and vegetable carvings before preparing hand-made noodles on stage which will be served with seafood and fried sweet potato.

“For those who crave some sushi there will be a sushi making class with local sushi maestro DK from Ashin’s Sushi Train and Japanese Restaurant and one lucky amateur sushi roller from the audience will win a sushi tool kit.

“Garden2Kitchen presenters Phil Dudman and Julie Rey will show what can be done with fresh garden vegetables by whipping up a Lemon, Ginger Four Herb Salad with Lemongrass Chicken Satay Skewers.

“If everyone still has room, there will be free yum cha tastings and for those that have a competitive streak we will be holding our popular eating competitions with Yum Cha and Kim Chi on offer for those game enough.

“The little ones won’t be left out either with cupcake decorating for those with an artistic touch, or a sweet tooth.

“The Campsie Food Festival is a feast of flavours and with so much delicious food on offer, plus great music, amazing performers and a sideshow alley for kids, Beamish Street, Campsie will be the place to be on 2nd June,” the Mayor said.
