'Tis the season to be jolly! No it's not Christmas but it's time for Taste of Sydney, the food festival that allows lucky Sydney siders to sample food from the top restaurants around Sydney for a fraction of the price - a build your own degustation. Diners purchase crowns which they can redeem at each restaurant's stand with 1 crown =$1 and dishes ranging from 8, 10 and 12 crowns with drinks at 6 crowns. The restaurants participating include Aria, Pilu at Freshwater, Guillame at Bennelong Balzac, Longrain, Danks Street Depot, Flying Fish, Assiette, Bird Cow Fish, Berowra Waters Inn, Four In Hand, Buon Ricordo, Jonah's, Marque and el Toro Loco. There is also the Producer's Market, the Chef's table where you can sit and talk to the chefs, the Taste Kitchen and interactive wine sessions.
