‘Anyone can cook’ is the message from this year’s celebrity chef at the annual Bankstown Bites Food Festival on Saturday 28 July.
Irish-born Colin Fassnidge, who has appeared as a judge on My Kitchen Rules and owns acclaimed Surry Hills restaurant 4Fourteen, will conduct three cooking demonstrations on the day.
"I want to make sure people realise cooking’s not actually that hard, we just make it look hard," Fassnidge said.
"People get bogged down in recipes but cooking is all about tasting, it’s about flavor. The main thing you need to do is to just enjoy it. If you enjoy cooking, it becomes a lot better."
Fassnidge, famous for his ‘Nose to Tail’ philosophy which takes undesirable cuts and turns them into mouthwatering dishes, said he couldn’t wait to meet locals and share his experiences.
"I love going out to different places and meeting people from different cultures, having a laugh, hearing their stories and telling my story," he said.
"I’m excited to show recipes that I like to cook at home and I think people will enjoy them and want to cook them at home as well."
Mayor Khal Asfour all residents to come along on the day and invite their friends from other areas of Sydney and beyond.
"Bankstown Bites is one of the best times of the year in Canterbury-Bankstown and, with Colin sharing his culinary secrets, this year’s event is one not to be missed," he said.
Other highlights on the day will include around 30 food tours and live entertainment, while there will be dozens of stall holders.
The festival will run from 10am-4pm in Olympic Parade, Bankstown.
