Strathfield Good Food Guide : Strathfield Good Food Guide 2013
6 | STRATHFIELD GOOD FOOD GUIDE 6 | STRATHFIELD GOOD FOOD GUIDE OUR FOOD It’s a cliche, but it’s true – if the inner west of Sydney is a cultural melting pot, then Strathfield is a culinary one. It’s home to so many great food cultures, including Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and, of course, Korean. Today, Korean food has become almost as much part of Australia’s diet as any of the cuisines that make up our famous international kitchen. Just a short time ago, chef Matt Moran wrote in a Sunday newspaper column that Korean chefs who had worked in his restaurants had opened his eyes to the joy of kimchi, a side dish of fermented vegetables and spices that’s considered to be Korea’s national food. Korean has made its place in our food lives and where better to find great Korean eateries than in Strathfield? The dishes are all there: bibimbap and Korean barbecue, bossam (simmered pork with spicy sauce), hot pots and Korean fried chicken. This year ’s Strathfield Food Festival features a food personality with a classically wonderful mix of heritages – the delightful Amina Elshafei (of MasterChef fame) is Korean-Egyptian and, of course, Australian. It isn’t hard to imagine where such great culinary influences take her cooking. The festival is just one part of the bigger Good Food Month presented by Citibank, which brings together the many great cuisines, chefs, cafes, bars and eateries grand and humble that make up the fabric of Sydney dining. It’s a wonderful mix and something we can all be truly proud of. Our food and wine culture is now the envy of the world – and visitors to our city go home marvelling at how well they have dined while on our shores. Strathfield Food Festival is just one way for people to explore and celebrate all that is vibrant, diverse and delicious about Good Food Month and Sydney today. And this great guide is another. Use it well and often. Happy eating! Joanna Savill Good Food Month festival director and Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide editor Delicious diversity
