This year is all about nourishment for me – including nourishment of the senses and continued inspiration. Many of you know that I’m a die-hard events fan and absolutely love to host events that bring people together. But I also love getting glimpses into other blogging events from around the world and will be committed to sharing more of these this year – in fact I have a TON of events to report on from last year that we hosted that I’ll be sharing soon – stay tuned!
In the meantime I wanted to share some information on March into Merivale, the annual five-week food and wine festival taking Sydney by storm every year. Now in its eighth year, the event is surely the most anticipated on Sydney’s culinary calendar. With over 50 restaurants and bars ready to showcase the food and chefs who make Merivale venues the best in town. This year March into Merivale is your excuse to just go for it! To yield to your guiltiest pleasures… and then some, with first-class food, desserts of the highest sin, and cheeky drinks to keep the party rolling. March into Merivale kicked off in style on Feb 10, and for the next five weeks will be showcasing the best of Merivale with events at Mr Wong, The Paddington, Felix, Ms.G’s, sushi e and many more. Choose from luxurious Champagne tasting evenings, desserts dripping in chocolate, beachside carnivals, shameless dance parties and once-in-a-lifetime dinners.
Last week I was luckily enough to join Natalie from Eat Read Love and 20 of Sydney’s best food and lifestyle bloggers at the March Into Merivale exclusive preview launch dinner. Hosted by Rebecca Gibbs, we indulged in chef David Lovett’s Ultimate Guilty Pleasures Menu overlooking the Ivy Pool Bar from Uccello. It was a decadent dinner, held poolside and with the theme of ‘guilty pleasures’ – pure heaven on a beautiful Sydney summer evening.
March into Merivale runs from Feb 15- 20th March. For all of the details and bookings head to www.marchintomerivale.com.au.
