The weekend is approaching, and you want to know what's kicking? Whazzup Sydney has you covered. This week we’ve got fashion warehouse sales, a Sardinian cooking class, a hard to find pop-up, a rooftop party series plus heaps more!
Thursday: Rupert and Ruby’s Thanksgiving Feast
The latest Icon Park residents Rupert and Ruby are hosting a Thanksgiving dinner, staying true to their American roots with plenty of pumpkin and spice. American-born chef Eli Challenger will be preparing three-courses for the holiday, including “fancy” spins on the usual trimmings – smoked and roasted turkey, candied yams, roasted Brussels sprouts, and a twisted spiced pumpkin cheesecake. Of course, this is more than about just good food, it’s a celebration of friends, family and… food! Although tickets have already sold out, walk-in tables will be reserved for stragglers!
Where: Rupert & Ruby’s
How much: $75
Thursday: Casa Barilla Sardinian cooking class
Head down to the Casa Barilla for a two and a half hour hands-on cooking class, focussing on the flavours and techniques behind regional Sardinian Italian cuisine. A bit pricey at $90, but ‘wow!’ your loved ones, and even yourself with the things you pick up! Prosecco (sparkling white wine) and antipasto will be given to students on arrival, as well as food and wine being provided with your meal and products to take home!
If you can’t make it on Thursday, they’ve got another class scheduled for Saturday at 11am sharp.
Where: Case Barilla, Annandale
How much: $90
