  • The Bucket List – dinner with a twist…

    While venturing Down Under, a visit to the famous Bondi is a must for all travellers and like the rest of Sydney, this surfing retreat hosts a whole range of eateries.


    I managed to stumble across somewhere a little different...


    The Bucket List, perfectly situated right in front of the ocean, is now hosting a succession of meals using organic food as part of the Local Produce Dinner series, which helps support local farmers as local produced is used.


    The Bucket List’s Head Chef Tom Walton says that The Bucket List is great for regulars and holiday makers to try food that is produced locally.


    “Through the dinner series we are giving guests a feast using the freshest local and seasonal produce and preparing it simply,” Tom says.


    “We want to raise the awareness of the great farmers and producers we have right here on our doorstep.”


    The dinners are hosted in conjunction with Food Orbit, and founder James Nathan wants to develop a bigger relationship between wholesale buyers, such as chefs and restaurateurs, to trade with local farmers.


    “We’re giving farmers and producers an online presence and a platform to connect, build relationships and trade online with the growing number of chefs and wholesale buyer wanting their produce,” James says.


    “In putting these dinners on with Tom, it’s great to get to work with a chef who shares our passion to showcase exactly that.”


    Goods from brewers, wineries, farmers and producers from in and around Sydney, The Hawkesbury River, Southern Highlands, Leppington, Newtown and even as close as Bondi Beach (talk about closeness) will be incorporated into the menu at the popular restaurant.


    Each dinner showcases different free-range meat, and so far lamb and beef have already been on the menu. Prices start from $80 per head including wine, beer and sparkling water.


    Upcoming dinners in the series include:


    Wednesday June 5 - free range beef


    Thursday July 11 - free range pig on a spit


    Thursday July 25 - organic free-range chicken and venison


    August 8 - local sustainable seafood  



    Don’t miss out on trying some of the finest food that Sydney has to offer!
