Well, Fish Friday anyway, which will be on Friday, 18 February from 12.pm to 2.30pm in Martin Place in Sydney's CBD. If you go by everyday, you would have noticed the construction of some sort of marquee over the past few days.
A school of chefs will take over in front of a sea of people and show off their skills with seafood from the Sydney Fish Markets. Jeff Turnbull (Aqua Dining), Max Lukeman (Nick’s Seafood), Stewart Wallace (Garfish) and Adam Lord (Coast) will be joined by chefs from Doyles at the Quay, who will be preparing a simple meal of fish for the general public.
Sydneysiders are invited to donate what they would usually spend on lunch to show solidarity with the millions of people in our world who rely on fish and rice as their staple diet.
Keen foodies are encouraged to place their bids for dishes created by Jeff, Max, Stewart & Adam in a special auction at 12.30pm. The top four bidders will be invited to sit down in Martin Place to enjoy their special seafood meal, and have the opportunity to chat with the chef who created it.
All proceeds will go to Caritas Australia’s 2010 Project Compassion Appeal, which this year hopes to raise in excess of $10m. For more information on the work of Caritas Australia, click here.
