To bring Omnivore, the international culinary festival, to Sydney. Omnivore was created in 2003 by French food critic Luc Debanchet. His intention was to shake up the French culinary scene and champion new and innovative chefs. Since then the Omnivore festival has expanded around the world to cities such as Moscow, Paris, London, New York, San Francisco, Montreal, Shanghai, Istanbul, Brussels, Geneva and in 2013 our very own Sydney.
What we created
We helped Omnivore to bring their festival of masterclasses, pop-up experiences and parties to Sydney. We built a culinary festival that stayed true to Omnivore’s core values of collaboration, irreverence and craft, but that had an unmistakably Aussie flavour.
“It’s a fantastic event Omnivore. Having the chance to play around and do stuff with other young chefs is a wonderful opportunity. Then to cook and educate other people with what we come up with is simply a great thing.”
