FOODIES will again flock to Narrabri this weekend.
Nosh on the Namoi is on from today and food and wine will be the top-of-the-table ingredienst for the town.
The event will be on the Riverside lawn of the Crossing Theatre and will showcase the region’s produce.
Tonight’s celebrations start with The Nosh Eve – a fine-dining opening night event for true foodies.
Nosh on the Namoi promises entertainment for the whole family, including the Nosh Triathlon early tomorrow morning, live appearances by Costa Georgiadis, the unique Greek garden guru, and the inaugural home brew competition that will be judged tomorrow afternoon.
For the young food lovers, there is Kids in the Kitchen and the Active Entertainment film-making workshop is not for the faint-hearted.
Teenagers can come and get messy filming themselves amidst an extreme food fight and then learn how to edit the footage into a movie.
The annual Courier Cook-off always promises to be an exciting feature with local community groups and teams taking on challengers to produce the best dish.
The Nosh committee is pleased to welcome back celebrity chef Chris Badenoch, who will be leading cooking demonstrations throughout the day including the cooking of a spit roast.
Mr Badenoch is the hat-wearing beer merchant from the original MasterChef Australia.
His witty and dark sense of humour ensures time spent with Chris is always entertaining and infinitely memorable.
Festivities continue with the Nosh Night Out, an exciting evening of culinary delights incorporating the best elements from exhibitors and other regional food producers.
Visitors to the day function of Nosh on the Namoi will enjoy free admission, and are encouraged to stay on and enjoy a meal, live entertainment and the fireworks extravaganza on the banks of the Namoi River behind the Crossing Theatre.
