Good Food Month: round up #1

As we launch into the first week of GFM, bloggers are limbering up for the marathon of events ahead. True to form, and displaying the tenacity and dedication that has made her one of the most widely respected and read food bloggers in Australia, if not globally, Helen from Grab Your Fork was first post in, sampling the sumptuous delights of the organic and sustainable dégustation at Bécasse, recently crowned Sydney’s Restaurant of the Year.

Jen is an early starter at the Night Noodle Markets in Hyde Park with some very atmospheric pix of the fairy lights and gorgeous Archibald Fountain in our well loved Sydney landmark. Looks like great food to be had for a song there all through the month.

Kathryn from Limes and Lycopene followed an artistic bent to take in the Shoot The Chef photography exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW.

Setting a cracking pace Helen was off to both the Night Noodle Markets and the SMH Growers Markets. The noodle market looks like it’s bigger than ever and I’m sure looking forward to getting down there in the next few weeks!

I started off my GFM with a visit to the Growers Markets on Saturday which, as a special event for the month, had respected food celebrity Joanna Savill emceeing while Justin North from Bécasse rattled the pans in a cooking demonstration plus giveaways of produce and his new book.

And proving just as eager, Jen headed down for the full Pyrmont Markets experience as well.

It seems that the Good Living Growers Markets have to be the winner this week for the most popular event, with Julia and Swee also posting their adventures there for our reading pleasure.

Thanks to all those who got in early and posted their first week’s experiences. As GFM moves into full swing I’m sure there’ll be many more. And don’t worry if someone’s posted about an event you’re going to as well – everyone has a different take on the food and atmosphere and it’s always great to compare notes, impressions and tastes. And if you missed out posting on something that you’ve been to this week, write it up and I’ll include it in next week’s round up.

Good round-up Rebecca, lots more stories to be told over the next few weeks - it's such a great time of year in Sydney. Re technorati, I copied the tag HTML into my post and it links through to the gfm06 page, but my post doesn't show up there? Thanks again for organising this.

Bummer, Y. I am tragic enough to have planned my holidays after GFM. Bad case I am.

My pleasure to do the wrap up Helen and Kathryn - it's fun seeing what everyone else is up to!
