THREE WORLD-CLASS CHEFS ANNOUNCED FOR SAMPLE FOOD FESTIVAL 2019!

You are here

Sample a taste of Northern New South Wales with the Sample Food Festival, the premier food event for Northern NSW. It takes place on the 1st Saturday in September at the Bangalow Showgrounds, in the Byron Bay hinterland. The 9th Annual Sample Food Festival will be held on Saturday 7th September 2019.

Since the debut festival in 2011, farmers, producers, chefs and a whole range of creative individuals from all corners of the region, have come together to share their wares, their passion and their knowledge.

Each year foodies from far and wide have the opportunity to “sample” the best food and beverage, Northern New South Wales has to offer. The region’s top restaurants compete for the coveted “Gold Fork” awards and collaborate on a special luncheon.

Food lovers rejoice! Sample Food Festival is thrilled to announce that some of Australia’s best chefs will be at the ninth annual Sample Food Festival to be held at the Bangalow Showgrounds on Saturday 7th September 2019!

It is an absolute honour to be welcoming celebrity chef Matt Moran, an Australian food icon and a pioneer of the ‘paddock to plate’ philosophy, to this year’s Sample Food Festival. 

This year’s guest chef is Federico Zanellato of LuMi Dining Sydney, who was nominated Citi Chef of The Year 2017 by SMH Good Food Guide. Federico will be wowing Sample lunch patrons with his signature style of modern Italian with a Japanese twist and will also be a guest chef at the Sample Food Festival. 

We are also very pleased to announce that festival favourite Luca Ciano will be back at this year’s event. With less than three months to go, this year’s festival is already shaping up to be one of our best yet...

Tickets for the Sample lunch along with other ticketed events and workshops will be going on sale soon!
