On Saturday, 1 June, Spencer Street in Fairfield City Centre will be transformed into a buzzing celebration of Fairfield City’s colourful and vibrant diversity with food and entertainment from all around the world as the Culinary Carnival opens to the public.
Joining the crowd-favourite asado barbecue, Spanish paella and Argentinian empanadas will be Greek chicken and beef souvlaki, Portuguese chicken burgers, Italian roasted chestnuts and arancini.
For those with a sweet tooth, pick up an exciting dessert, including sugarcane mocktails and artisan ice pops, tres leches cups, caramel rolls, French pastries, slices, custard tarts and more.
Visitors really wanting to give their tastebuds a workout can sign up for one of the eating competitions, including spicy pickle, falafel and churros.
For those wanting to add to their own kitchen skills, there will be a special cooking demonstration from fan-favourite 2017 MasterChef contestant Bryan Zhu, presented by Fairfield Forum. The Three Assyrian Sisters will also demonstrate their culinary skills by preparing a traditional Assyrian meal.
For the junior chefs, there will be quesadilla and bruschetta cooking workshops, presented by St Johns Park Bowling Club.
While visitors enjoy the wide selection of international cuisines, snacks and desserts on offer, they can sit back and take in the dance performances, including flamenco, Bolivian, hula and hip hop, or pick up some moves at one of the dance workshops.
