**Full Burger List & Prices Below

Melbourne’s first Pizza Burger and Shake Burger to make their debut at one of Victoria’s oldest markets

Melbourne’s most loved burger party is back for one-day only at Dandenong Market on Sunday 27 May to celebrate National Burger Day.

For one delicious day, 21 of the market’s vendors are turning burger mad and will offer their own limited-edition burgers. Running from the savoury to sweet – representing a host of different cuisines – these clever creations will take anyone’s burger obsession to the next level.

Burger Day 3[2]

Burger lovers have the opportunity to munch on Melbourne’s first ever pizza burger from Dandy Pizza (two Margherita pizzas as ‘buns’, with a beef patty, cheese, fresh sliced tomato, spinach and homemade sauce), bite into Thela Indian Street Food’s Indian Stack Burger (rice pancake buns, vegetable samosas, cheese, avocado and lamb keema), chomp into Market Tavern’s Schnitzel Burger (2 chicken parma ‘buns’, fried egg, tomato and lettuce) or jump on the charcoal trend with the Charcoal Burger.

Market goers will be able to indulge in a sweet tooth’s dream with over seven dessert burgers. After the success at last year’s Burger Day, Dandee Donuts will be recreating their Tim Tam burger: Tim Tam, jam sauce and cream inside two steaming hot Dandee Donuts. A Lamington Burger, a Donut Ice-cream Burger and another Melbourne first – The Monster Burger Shake: a smoothie topped with a cinnamon donut, chocolate sponge, strawberries, toffee, white chocolate syrup and whipped cream – will all be on offer.

Burger Day 1[2]

The burger royalty who have an adventurous appetite can take part in the professional burger eating competition and demolish The Double Chompster:a 900-gram burger including 5 burger buns, 8 beef patties, 8 cheese slices, bacon rashers, onions, pickles, ketchup, mustard and BBQ sauce. The burger has been created by Instagram food sensation and burger faithful Riley ‘Chompamatic’ Murphy (@chompamatic) for Dandenong Market’s burger specialist, The Grill. If contestants conquer this, they have the chance to win $500.

Burger Day 4[2]

 Briony Walker, Marketing Manager at Dandenong Market, says Dandenong Market will play host to Melbourne’s biggest burger party in 2018 with more than 25,000 people expected to attend.

“After the success of last year’s Burger Day celebrations, we and the stall holders knew we had to step it up a notch; and with double the amount of traders this year, no one will go hungry!

“This free, community event has something to offer for everyone – from pizza lovers to ice-cream lovers – all in the shape of a burger,” Walker said.

Visitors can have their Dandenong Market ‘Burger Passport’ stamped at each participating trader and go into the running to win $500 in Dandenong Market vouchers. Each stamp counts as a separate entry, so conquer all 25 limited- edition burgers and get 25 entries to win big.

To top off the mouth-watering festivities, The Grill will also be giving away unlimited burgers for one year. Enter via Dandenong Market’s Facebook page and go in the draw to treat your friends for 12 burger-endless months.

CHEFS GALLERY ANNOUNCE MASSIVE MENU MAKEOVER

CHEFS GALLERY RESTAURANTS – SYDNEY

CG_MENU_2017_MD4

Chefs Gallery, Sydney’s favourite contemporary Chinese Restaurant Group, continue to revolutionise Asian cuisine with their biggest menu update in seven years. Available now is a mouth-watering range of tantalising new menu items exclusive to each restaurant location in Town Hall, Macquarie, Bankstown, Parramatta and Hurstville.

CG_MENU_2017_SD1

With each restaurant offering its own exclusive selection of dishes, customers are now able to walk into any Chefs Gallery location across Sydney and have a wholly unique culinary experience.

Fans of Chefs Gallery’s hugely popular classic menu can rest assured – the old favourites are all still there, with plenty receiving scrumptious upgrades, delicious new additions, and updated flavours.

“We’re thrilled to introduce this thoughtful new selection of spectacular dishes, largely influenced by each neighbourhood where we reside, from the suburbs of Sydney to the cities of China. Each dish is a brilliant compliment to all the favourites that have been loved and devoured over the years,” said Chefs Gallery Owner Kaisern Ching.

CG_MENU_2017_HN5

Here’s a taste of what’s on offer at each location:

TOWN HALL

Diners can look forward to a mind-blowing blend of classic Asian cuisine with contemporary twists, including delicately sweet jumbo king prawns steamed atop a light bed of sake and egg white custard, topped with black tobiko, plus Fujian style blue swimmer crab, served with dried and fresh scallop fried rice and housemade XO sauce.

MACQUARIE

Macquarie Centre’s braised and deep fried quail on the bone is an elevated take on a classic Chinese quail dish, and the duet of long red and green chillies filled with ground pork and fish paste, pan-fried to perfection, is the perfect share-plate fare.

PARRAMATTA

Parramatta’s Korean-style “mac and cheese” of rice cakes, sweet corn, butter, three cheeses, sambal and Korean chilli flakes is a flawlessly-executed fusion masterpiece, and even old-school Chinese take-out favourites get an inspiring modern update, with honeycomb chicken wings slathered in a delightfully sticky shiso, yuzu and honey glaze.

HURSTVILLE

Hurstville salutes a Cantonese classic with the wok fried Rostbiff Black Angus beef with cheung fun rice noodles, yellow garlic chives and sweet soy sauce. Vegetarians haven’t been forgotten either, with the golden battered eggplant, coated with melt-in-your-mouth salted duck egg yolk and black tobiko.

CG_MENU_2017_D6

DESSERT MENU

The much-loved, innovative desserts menu has also received a delectable makeover, with a new range of irresistible treats blending traditional Asian flavours with refreshing modern influences joining the iconic Prince and Princess Piggy buns and Emoji Friends buns.

New desserts include a jaw-droppingly gorgeous deconstructed pavlova with Asian-inspired fresh and freeze-died fruits, and a French toast with peanut butter filling, toasted marshmallows, Persian fairy floss, honeycomb and housemade Hong Kong milk tea ice cream. All these desserts and more are available at all Chefs Gallery locations.

FARM FRESH DINING AT BELLBIRD DINING + BAR

Sydney Restaurant Launches Saturday 4th November 12pm – 2pm

Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre Launches Brand New Seasonal Dining Destination

**Sydney writer Lucy Collins will be heading to next week’s launch for The Australia Times Gourmet News

20170727_072

It might be named after the abundant songbirds populating the adjacent riverside, but Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre’s soon-to-be-launched Bellbird Dining + Bar is anything but commonplace.

Launching on Saturday 4 November, 12 – 2pm the new seasonal dining destination spins traditional restaurant models on their heads, with an ever-changing menu offering exquisite fine dining out west – at pub prices!

With a whopping 65% of produce grown and harvested just 50 metres from the kitchen door, Bellbird Dining + Bar champions sustainability and low food miles. Paired with direct relationships with artisan suppliers from the local NSW area, it offers a genuine farm-to-table culinary experience, with all dishes $18 or under.

BELLBIRD 5061

Having already gained a loyal word-of-mouth following, Bellbird’s official opening will be part of an exciting launch day at CPAC, with the Wendy Harmer Curates exhibition kicking off at 2PM, plus Sydney Film Festival’s monthly screening for November, the enchanting cat docco Kedi, at 4PM.

The launch is a great chance to sample Bellbird’s fantastic fare for yourself, with canapes showcasing seasonal herbs and vegetables harvested on-site alongside fresh Hawkesbury River oysters, calamari, eco-farmed pork, quail, and goat’s cheese sourced locally around NSW. Drinks will also be provided by South Western Sydney brewery Stockade Brew Co., plus wines from Artemis in the Southern Highlands.

BELLBIRD 4972 b

At the helm is Cordon Bleu-trained Head Chef Federico Rekowski, best known for his 12 years at the highly-rated Courtney’s Brasserie in Parramatta. Supported by Sous Chef Steven Pham (Ex-Courtney’s Brasserie, Fish Face), Federico’s inspiring dishes blend French haute cuisine flair with contemporary Asian and South American influences.

Bellbird will be open 7 days a week from 10am – 3pm, and is raising the bar on what to expect from arts centre dining. It marks the continuation of a grand new refresh of CPAC. Bellbird also serves dinner to accompany select evening events, screenings and performances.
