Taste in the City is back.

If a weekend of food, wine, and entertainment sounds like the perfect way to welcome spring, then mark your calendars, Taste in the City is just around the corner.

Taste in the City started as Taste of Coogee in 2013 but has since become Sydney’s favourite foodie festival. This year, from Saturday, September 3 to Sunday, September 4, Taste in the City will come to life in the Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park.

For those new to the festival, expect a line-up of the state’s best food and wine, live cooking workshops, a luxurious long lunch, and entertainment and music for the family.

This year’s Celebrity Kitchen will be hosted by TV favourite Peter Everett. Foodies in the crowd can look forward to learning what makes the kitchens of Aldo Ortado, Mindy Woods, Jason Roberts, Tom Walton, and Rowie Dillon so deliciously successful.

On Sunday, 100 guests will sit down to the renowned Long Lunch with a sumptuous meal designed by Tom Walton and Jason Roberts and wines supplied by wineries across NSW.

For the younger foodies, 2022 will see the Queen of Gluten-Free Indulgence, Rowie Dillon, host ‘Kids In The Kitchen. Kids looking for a delicious lunch with friends may want to grab a seat at Rowie’s table for a cook-up of their own.

Taste In The City is about taking the weekend at your leisure, supporting Australia’s food, wine and hospitality economy (to the backdrop of live bands and musicians). Rain, hail or shine, Taste In The City has it covered—a cider in the sun or a mulled wine if the weather is a little crisp, enjoy the weekend under the sails of the Entertainment Quarter’s pavilion.

A few weeks ago, ALDI opened the cheapest wine bar in Sydney, and today, they’re bringing us more frugal feeds with a pop-up dumpling truck.

The truck will be open from 5-7 pm (or while stocks last) today in the ALDI Bankstown Central car park, with hungry Sydneysiders able to swing by to pick up a box of six Urban Eats dumplings, including fan-favourites Prawn Gyoza and a delicious new seasonal addition to the range, Chicken Dumplings—all for less than a $2 coin.

ALDI’s quality range means Aussies can treat themselves to a Friday restaurant-quality meal that won’t break the bank.

Can’t make it to the Dumpling Truck? ALDI has everyone else covered with the full range of dumplings available in the freezer section across the country.
