The Star celebrates tastes of the world during Good Food Month 2013


One destination, endless taste sensations

The Star is once again a proud major sponsor of Sydney’s premier food festival, Good Food Month, and will be hosting an array of mouth-watering events throughout October.

Sydneysiders are invited to enjoy exclusive signature dishes and beverages from The Star’s acclaimed restaurants including Sokyo, Balla and BLACK by ezard, whilst meeting some of the world-renowned chefs who create them.

Foodies can look forward to digging deep into the cultural heritage of our chefs by experiencing exclusive private dinners, sushi and sashimi-making classes, celebrate Stefano Manfredi’s 30 years in the business, enjoy Middle Eastern cuisine with guest chef Shane Delia – and more.

Good Food Month Festival Director Joanna Savill says she is eager to see what The Star will be bringing to the table this year.

“The line-up of events on offer at The Star makes a fantastic addition to this year’s Good Food Month. We’re looking forward to seeing what The Star’s high pedigree of chefs has in store for our taste buds.”
