ORANGE F.O.O.D WEEK
F.O.O.D WEEK Night Market
This event is a friends and family favourite, with over 50 stalls representing the Orange Region’s clever chefs, cooks, caterers, providores and winemakers. Join us in the park for a beautiful Autumn evening of fresh local produce and cool climate wines. Music and communal dining tables make this experience to be shared.
Visit F.O.O.D HQ to ask our volunteers for information about all things F.O.O.D. Listen to and meet various producers and chefs talking about their creative lives, taste their specialties, chat to them and buy their produce directly from them.
100 Mile Dinner
The F.O.O.D Week committee and the people of Molong welcome guests for the fifth year to the iconic 100 Mile Dinner under the stars on the Village Green in Molong. Food from Mudgee, Young, Cowra, Canowindra, Orange, Molong and Bathurst – and their wines – will be brought to you by these towns’ best chefs and cooks. NEW TO 2017 – TICKET PRICES ARE NOW ALL INCLUSIVE OF ALL FOOD AND BEVERAGES.
A weekend of food awaits – starting with a light breakfast on board the F.O.O.D Train. Producers will explain the various methods of how your food gets from paddock to plate. On arrival in Orange you’ll be whisked away to savour the food of the district – including a fine dining experience; the FORAGE event on Saturday; on Sunday wander beautiful Cook Park, enjoy brunch from our producers and gather local produce to take home.
Starting at Balmoral Vineyard, progressing through the property’s Koomooloo Vineyard and finishing at the picturesque adjoining North Face Vineyard, FORAGE is a walk through these vineyards (and cattle property!) eating and wine tasting every 500 metres or so! A gentle 3.6km walk from start to finish, DPI personnel and growers will be with you all the way to chat and answer your questions about how and why our cool climate is so good for our produce and people.
Sunday Producers Market
Come and enjoy local produce, prepared by Orange’s well known cooks and Farmer’s Market Producers, for your breakfast or brunch. Cooking demos by some of Orange’s up and coming young chefs. Children’s activities to keep them entertained while you relax under the canopy of trees. Or simply stroll the market and purchase local produce to take home and enjoy later.
