Try a range of Japanese cuisines with MasterChef winner Adam Liaw and a fully stocked izakaya bar
A Japanese food village is hitting Auburn Botanic Gardens for Sydney’s Cherry Blossom Festival and you’re invited.
Picnic in the gardens and sample all types of Japanese treats from a host of food trucks and restaurants: grab noodles and sashimi from Masyua, bento boxes to Hattomotto, Japanese-inspired hot dogs from J Dogs, gyoza and Yakitori wraps from Shiso Fine, bao from Mr Bao and heaps more.
Celebrity chef Adam Liaw will also be there on the first weekend (August 19-20) hosting foodie demonstrations. In his capacity as the Goodwill Ambassador for Japanese cuisine in Australia, Liaw will demonstrate how to use leftovers while making Japanese dishes during two sessions (noon and 2pm) at the Love Your Leftovers stage.
New for 2017, the Japanese Food Village will also feature an authentic izakaya bar serving Asahi beer, premium imported sake and some of Japan’s best plum wine. Punters can even attend sake appreciate workshops on Sundays.
