|Men around the barbie... Barbecue Madness at Pyrmont Growers' Market for Crave|
Sydney International Food Festival 2011
Failing that, there were other tickets available for a random allocation to a bunched up table of 10 for sustainable meat barbecue feasts from other chefs; many who had been on site since 5am (first round at 8.30am).

He brought out some of the dishes to the table and explained the pretty complex dish before us, involving more processes of braising and baking than my mind could handle and some pretty serious cooking times.

I even scoffed the fatty bits, smothered in the veal jus, as they were just so delectable, along with cooking partners of the carrots and the refreshment of the watercress. Every bit of jus was also mopped up with a Sonoma bread roll, which also saw the love from Pukara Estate extra virgin olive oil and caramelised balsamic vinegar.

Totally worth the early morning wake-up to get to the Pyrmont Growers' Market, Barbecue Madness was a definite success and a great start to what looks like another fab month of eating, drinking and festival fun.
