The ultimate four-course Sunshine progressive dinner, Sunshine Food Fever takes you on a food journey that celebrates and reflects the successive waves of Middle Eastern, Asian, African and Pacific Island immigration which combine to make Sunshine one of the most culturally – and gastronomically – diverse places in Australia.
Your food journey begins by meeting local Kiwi Ka Bakers who have transformed the humble Australian staple – the meat pie – into a range of pies, including vegan, reflecting Sunshine’s tastes, at the same time receiving national awards and accolades.
Then meet head cooks from three restaurants as they take you behind-the-scenes, presenting dishes celebrating their family, history and place. Sample soups and salads, followed by a banquet and finsh with sweets and drinks.
