Having a quick look at the membership list we have the following members putting their hands up for living in Sydney:
pipstar
and me (Zuzanna).

It might be cool to have a celebration on the other side of the world - what's the plan? We might need to recruit a few other people otherwise you and I will have a sad little party all by ourselves Razz

Zuzanna.

Well, I would certainly be very pleased and heart-warmed if you guys got together and raised your glass to C&Z! And to me, two is absolutely enough for a party!

Zuzanna ~ how about the Night Noodle Market (as part of SMH Good Food Month) near the Botanical Gardens?

there would be the chocolate and zucchini and Sydney Morning Herald connection which would be rather sweet...

Zuzanna, let me know if you're interested...my mail is listed.

madameshawshank and Zuzanna

If you go to the Night Noodle Market, please tell us (me!) what it's like. It sounds fantastic!

In return, I'll tell you about the special Stephanie Alexander dinner I'm going to tomorrow night.

Hello fellow Sydney-siders - I am a newbie here and am rather flat out at the moment so will sadly, probably miss the whole noodle market thing by the time I pull my head out of my work - but if you decide to get together again sometime I would love to join in!

cheers

When I lived in Sydney (left in 1998) there was a noodle market in North Sydney in Friday Nights.
Is it still going?
At that time I worked at Stanton (North Sydney Library) and went to the market on quite a few occasions.

Now I'm back in Victoria, Geelong to be exact, but I do get to Sydney every now and then. Maybe I'll get in touch next time, although it won't be for a while!

You have peaked my curiosity. What is a noodle market?

The Noodle market in Nth Sydney was like a Hawker's market in Asia.
Stalls set up in the open air. Many small cafe owners or specialist food makers would cook their specialties and you walk around trying to choose what to eat!
It's always hard to make a decision because it all looks so interesting.
The noodle market name comes from the fact that a lot of the stalls do noodle dishes as you would find in Singapore or Hong Kong or Thailand or Japan etc.
I also remember a stall selling food from Nepal and Indian curries .
Perhaps that's one of the great things about our very multicultural society - lots of great foods to try out.

couldn't agree more Gillian...I think of the Irish restaurant, the Swiss, the Russian, the Greek.................!!!!!!!!!!!!!! , Thai to die for, German the same!...Una's at Darlinghurst ~ it's been there for 30 years. A few days back I had dinner there with my son...Wiener Schinitzel falling off the plate..and oh, the sauerkraut ~ delicious German beer.

Truly, I can't think of an ethnic cuisine that isn't represented in either of the two cities.

by the way Gillian ~ our temp reached almost 42 today Embarassed .....my diet will be ice cream for a while. It's almost too hot to think..perhaps I'll give it a break.

anyone care for some raspberry sorbet (homemade!)

Although we do have restaurants from every place imaginable here I am envious of the availability that you enjoy. Correct me if I am wrong, wasn't there a mass exodus to Australia after the second world war? I have had several friends from Australia who have mentioned something to that effect. Yours is a very interesting history/food history.

There were certainly many immigrants after the war.
Where I live in Geelong there were many Dutch people. This resulted in lots of bulb growing in the area but I cannot recall ever seeing a dutch restaurant. There were very few restaurants at all.
In Melbourne the Greeks and Italians were very obvious groups, leading to great food changes to the usual "english" centered meat and 2 veg style meals.
Melbourne has the second biggest Greek population of any city in the world after Athens!
More Italian went to Sydney.
There were already large populations of Chinese immigrants who came to Australia during the gold rushes of the 1850's. They opened restaurants all over the countryside, and it is almost a standing joke that the only restaurant in many small country towns is chinese, including in the pubs!
More recently Thai, Vietnamese and many other South East Asian people have all added their own special flavours.
We are indeed very lucky to have all this choice and all these influences on our "Aussie Cuisine"
