FAIRFIELD’S Spencer Street will sizzle with excitement on October 25 from 11am to 4pm as it hosts the third annual Culinary Carnivale.
It is a free Fairfield City Council event that will bring together Sydney’s strong Spanish and Latin American community under a ‘carnivale’ atmosphere full of cultural performances, mouth-watering food and colourful displays.
Attendees will be treated to performances by Brazilian and flamenco dancers. There will also be Mexican singers and drummers, football stars and football giveaways, and face painting for the children.
Revisiting Culinary Carnivale is celebrity TV chef and gregarious Spaniard Miguel Maestre. Miguel will be cooking some of his favourite recipes during two sessions.
In the first session at noon he will prepare ‘Paella a la Maestre’ and ‘Bombe Alaska a la Maestre’. In session 2 at 2.30pm he will cook Chorizo, Tomato & Ricotta Tart, Miguel’s Mayonnaise, Chorizo and Scallop Mini Pizzas, and Olive Oil Shortbread. Yum!
“It is an honour for me to be a part of the Fairfield Culinary Carnivale for another year,” Miguel said.
“It is a great fiesta and has a special place in my Spanish heart. I can’t wait to show my Spanish flair through my recipes and get people on the stage to give me a hand.”
A Fairfield Council spokesman said the free event, which promotes the finest dishes and entertainment from Spain and Latin America, will be on October 25 from 11am to 4pm.
“Also returning this year will be the legendary Asado barbecue.”
“Asado is a technique for cooking cuts of meat (usually beef) and sausages on a barbecue.”
Also on the mouth-watering menu will be cuisines from Spain and Latin America, with tasty dishes such as seafood paella, empanadas, gelato and the famous churros.
Last year’s Culinary Carnivale attracted more than 10,000 people and it’s expected to attract even more this year.
