Celebrity chefs add to flavour of annual food fest

July 2, 2015 by  

A master class in Asian cooking by a winner of MasterChef Australia, Adam Liaw, will be a featured event at the 2015 Bankstown Bites Food Festival.

Residents from throughout the City of Bankstown in new South Wales , including Milperra, traditionally attend the annual festival, which was first held in 2005.

As is suggested in the event’s title, food is the main ingredient of the day, with many celebrity and local chefs enlisted to conduct cooking demonstrations.

Heather Jeong, a celebrity Korean cooking instructor, will add to the flavour of the event by illustrating her tried and true methods for fusion-style cooking.

As a regular on television shows Kitchen Conversations and Food Safari on the ABC network, the cook has attracted a big following among home gourmets.

Food stalls, cooking demonstrations and many guided food tours will be on offer, along with all the regular festival highlights.

Organisers said the festival is aimed at providing food and fun for all ages, with the programme also offering interactive cooking classes to be held at the Bankstown Arts Centre, free activities for the kids and non-stop entertainment.

Each year, celebrity and local chefs contribute to a recipe book put together as part of the festival.

Printing services have also been kept busy preparing recipes and information for distribution at the cooking classes.

The Bankstown Bites Food Festival will be held on July 25.
