Luscious fest back with Bites

NEPALESE street food, traditional Island “cook ups”, juicy Greek souvlaki and sweet treats from Macau, are just some of the international cuisines you can indulge in when Bankstown Bites returns to Olympic Parade and Griffith Park next month.

And if you prefer to get your hands dirty in the kitchen, learn how to make banoffee pie, cinnamon chilli chocolate brownies and a cheese charcuterie baguette at the food festival on Saturday, July 27, 10am-4pm.
“It’s no secret that our City is a melting pot of international cuisine and Bankstown Bites promises to be an explosion of unique food and culture,” Canterbury-Bankstown Mayor Bilal El-Hayek said.
A feature will be the all-new Celebrity Chef Masterclasses, run by renowned pastry chef Anna Polyviou and her mum, Eugina, who will be teaching participants how to make spanakopita, keftedes and loukoumades.
You could also learn the secrets behind the perfect backyard barbecue with demonstrations by the Barbeque Cooking School, or even try your hand at making fresh pasta, bruschetta and tiramisu in an Italian cooking workshop with Humanity Matters.
The famous food tours, brought to you by Time Out Sydney, will also be returning to escort groups around Bankstown and sample the best restaurants in town. For those who just can’t wait for the event, Bites Food Tours will also sample the best of Panania on Thursday, July 11, and Earlwood on Thursday, July 18.
The Bankstown Sports’ Bites Backyard will offer free barefoot bowls and garden games for the family, while the little ones can get involved in a number of free activities in the ‘Bites Corner’ including a kid’s kitchen workshop and face painting.
There will also be a jam-packed program of on-stage entertainment.
