Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney is bringing together a collection of award-winning chefs, both local and international, to make the October food festival the biggest the hotel has ever seen. The hotel will host three high-end events in conjunction with the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Month 2013, formerly known as Crave Sydney.

Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney’s collection of chefs includes the Tourism Accommodation of Australia’s 2013 NSW ‘Chef of the Year’ Bo Sorensen and Timeout Beijing’s 2012 ‘Chef of the Year’ Matthew McCool. They will display their culinary skills this October to offer the largest and most diverse gourmet experience the hotel has ever showcased. The hotel will also welcome three guest chefs from the Philippines for their annual food festival.

Good Food Month at Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney is designed to offer guests unique experiences with global flavours that highlight the chefs’ innovative cooking style and new techniques.

Altitude Restaurant on Level 36 will re-open its doors for the only time throughout the year for Friday lunch as part of the Let’s Do Lunch restaurant promotion.

Additional drinks, side dishes and dessert are also available for guests wanting to make the most of their Friday afternoon.

Café Mix at Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney will again host the annual Philippine Food Festival, which attracted 1,400 diners in 2012. In partnership with the Philippine Department of Tourism, the two-week-long festival will showcase authentic Filipino cuisine by three guest chefs from Makati Shangri-La, Manila. The guest chefs will work alongside Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney’s Executive Chef Steven Krasicki and Executive Sous Chef Bo Sorensen to develop a lavish spread from the tropical island featuring traditional cuisine, such as Kare-Kare, Pork Sisig, Chicken Inasal and much more.
