North Sydney will welcome a gastrophysic event experience this September, with avant-garde food, multi-layered technology and live performances!
Events experts and entertainment gurus Triumph Leisure Solutions and What Chefs Want TV are thrilled to be collaborating to bring to life the hugely anticipated Feast for the Senses gastrophysic event experience this September.
Feast for the Senses is supported by an incredible array of local partners, including Zoe Baker, Mayor of North Sydney, Mirvac, Greenwood Plaza, the Office of the 24 Hour Economy, Destination NSW and North Sydney Council.
Ms Baker has said of the upcoming event, ‘Council has been committed to revitalising the CBD and in recent years has seen new developments and businesses spring up. The Feast for the Senses event complements that growth and will give the CBD and its businesses a much needed boost.’
Feast for the Senses will pop up over four days and will include three incredible multi-sensory zones. Guests are invited to explore the fairy tale magic of Once Upon a Time, the otherworld wonders of Space, and an icy experience in the world of Sub Zero.
Each zone will include pop up stalls and kiosks offering incredible themed food bites and drinks. The chef-curated food bites have been designed by Sydney’s most celebrated degustation chef, Nelly Robinson and industry veteran Jack Peacock of Create Catering who has over 25 years’ experience developing outstanding culinary creations. In addition, mixologist-created drinks, production lighting and live performance art will enhance each space, making this a sensory wonderland not to be missed.

In the world of Sub Zero, feast on fried chicken with buttermilk snow chilli mayonnaise paired with a hellfire mojito mocktail. In Space, dine on a UFO burger or Saturn Dog whilst sipping on a blueberry vanilla dry tai. Or let your imagination run wild in Once Upon a Time with famed Sydney degustation chef, Nelly Robinson’s Lady and the Tramp’s spaghetti and meatballs, or Peter Pan’s Gold, golden roast pork belly croquettes and aioli matched perfectly with a blackberry sour mocktail.
Those with a sweet tooth can get their sugar hit from ‘What Chefs Want’ TV Host (and ex. Masterchef Australia contestant) Renae Smith’s hot Cookie Dough Toastie topped with a scoop of ice-cold gelato or sample Nelly Robinson’s famous “Melted Olaf”, carrot cake with mandarin and yoghurt. For the wanna-be astronauts out there, you can also try freeze dried ice-cream bars, exactly like the ones they eat in space!

To help deliver the sensory gastrophysic experience, each zone at Feast for the Senses will be complemented by roving performance artists combined with multi-layered lighting and special effects that will take the unique food and drink experience to a whole new level.
Blake Harris, Feast for the Senses creator, says, ‘Feast for the Senses will join forces with an assortment of local artists and dancers to create a bespoke, magical experience. It will also be a great boost for the event community, particularly after such a tough few years in our industry.’
Feast for the Senses will also be a collaboration with one of Sydney’s most active charities focused on providing employment opportunities for vulnerable community members – Plate It Forward. And it will raise funds to go directly to supporting people suffering food insecurity.
Shaun Christie-David, Director of Plate It Forward says, ‘This collaboration will have huge positive impacts for our team, our communities and all the guests who experience the event to be amazed by the food but know their journey extends beyond to help change people’s lives.’
Renae Smith, co-founder and host of the new TV program, What Chefs Want, ‘It’s so exciting to be able to film right here in North Sydney – showing more about the creativity behind the dishes on offer.”
In the true Sydney-sider way, people help people. And with Feast for the Senses, people will come for the food, but knowing they’ll be supporting both the reinvigoration of North Sydney, and struggling industries and people is certainly the final flourish on this innovative event.
Feast for the Senses has been conceptualised off the back of the NSW Government’s $50 million CBD Revitalisation Program, and proudly funded by NSW Government, its purpose is to reinvigorate the North Sydney CBD and captivate the local community through a multi-sensory event that integrates avant-garde food, multi-layered technology, and live performances – combining gastronomy and physics for an exciting ‘gastrophysic’ experience.
