2015 sees the return of Sydney Film Festival Gourmet Cinema, a coming together of 3 independent food related films matched with dinners from 3 of Sydney’s top restaurants along with Eden Road wines and beers from Little Creatures.
The first film, FUCKING PERFECT, is about chef Sergio Herman who shut down his three Michelin-starred Dutch restaurant Oud Sluis in December 2013 at the peak of its success. It’s about how long hours, and a constant quest for perfection has an effect on all facets of one’s life. The screening of FUCKING PERFECT will be followed by a 4 course dinner and cheese course with matched wines at The Bridge Room, headed by Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide “Chef of the Year 2014” winner Ross Lusted.
The second night sees the Australian premiere of Foodies, a new documentary about the somewhat obsessive world of the highest echelon of food bloggers. Foodies will be followed by a 3 course dinner with matched wines at Japanese fine dining restaurant Azuma.
On the final night, Good Things Await will be shown, a feature-documentary about biodynamic farming in Denmark, which follows an eccentric organic farmer (and supplier to NOMA) as he goes about his work and comes up against Danish authorities. Good Things Await will be followed by a 3 course meal with matched wines at modern Australian restaurant The Governors Table, located on the site of Australia’s first government house.
