A month-long dining event brings culinary masterclasses, free food-centric movies and more to The Rocks this winter.
At The Rocks this August, it’s all about food. Forage The Rocks is bringing exclusive masterclasses, pop-up events, and even a food-themed cinema to the harbourside precinct this winter.
Forage The Rocks’ masterclass series is an expert-led exploration of food, wine, gin, rum, beer, cocktails and more. Many of the masterclasses include drinks on arrival and meal pairings as well – check out the full list of classes via The Rocks website.
Over in Atherden Street, The Rocks Laneway Cinema will run a film program throughout August. On Wednesday nights, you can catch movies like Jon Favreau’s road comedy-drama filmChef (2014), classic musical Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971), ‘90’s favourite The Big Lebowski (1998), and kitchen comedy Waiting… (2005). Bean bags and heaters will keep customers cosy, plus food and drinks will be available from local retailers.
Every Wednesday, Australia’s first non-alcoholic distillery Seadrift Distillery will host their own pop-up bar on George Street. On August 3 from 3pm, the first 20 people to visit the pop-up will even get a free can of Seadrift ‘n Tonic as an afternoon refreshment.
