Eat your way through the Easter long weekend with our ultimate guide!
The Easter long weekend is nearly upon us, so it’s time to start planning your long weekend itinerary. One of our favourite things to do with our extra two days off is eat our way through Sydney and we’ve rounded up some delicious things happening for you to take advantage of.
New Winter Menu at Beast&Co, Surry Hills
If you’re looking to indulge, Surry Hills institution Beast&Co have launched their brand new menu inspired by the produce of the cooler months. The menu style is Bohemian European with dishes taking inspiration from the owner’s traditional Czech family recipes. Bring your family around to enjoy a 3-course set menu for just $69pp. You’ll begin on a lighter note with Baked Beetroot, goat’s cheese and honey walnuts, followed by Lamb Shank slow cooked in a rich red wine sauce or Fish Of The Day with potato rosti and buttery fish broth. The finale is a rich chocolate tart but we’d suggest pairing it with their new cocktail which is a twist on the classic Apricot Flip with Apricot Brandy and Cognac. Beast&Co will be open from 5-10pm on Friday, 11am-11pm on Saturday and 11am-10pm on Sunday. Book your table here.

Sustainable Seafood Recipes from Manu Feildel
We all know seafood is synonymous with Easter but we often don’t think about how we can shop and cook sustainably over the festive season. Manu Feildei is here to help, having teamed up with the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) and the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), international non-profits to share tips on how to make future friendly seafood choices. His suggestion is to choose seafood with the blue MSC label for wild-caught seafood and the green ASC label for responsibly farmed seafood. He’s also shared a bunch of delicious recipes including Pan-roasted Toothfish with a pipi chowder and the Kingfish Ceviche with sweet potatoes and leche de tigre. Download the ASC and MSC Fish Forever recipe book. Be sure to look out for the MSC blue fish tick and the ASC green label on seafood to ensure a future full of fish.
