Food, glorious food.
The Weekender team are partial to a good feed, a crisp beer or a fine wine. Saturday’s Food Issue is just that: a testament to the strength of our region’s food scene and the entrepreneurial spirit of business owners like Estabar’s Bec Bowie. Judith Whitfield spends a day in her busy life.
Subo’s Suzie Vincent and Restaurant Mason’s Chris Thornton chat to Lisa Rockman about Newcastle’s dining scene. Newy Burger Co’s Ben Neil talks food trucks and pastry chef Gareth Williams still can’t believe how quickly his Covered in Crumbs pop-up bakery venture has taken off.
Daniel Honan brews beer with FogHorn Brewhouse’s Shawn Sherlock; Jade Lazarevic looks at the slow-cooked barbecue trend; Michael Byrne talks coffee with the city’s best baristas; Alex Morris delves into the steel straw revolution and Nathalie Craig tracks down the five best kombucha brewers.
Oh, and we have reviewed 48 restaurants for your dining pleasure.
