One of my favourite places to eat in Sydney is Agape Organic Restaurant & Bar in Botany, so much so it was the venue I chose to celebrate the launch of my cookbook Naked Food in October last year.
Many exciting things are happening in and out of this gorgeous organic restaurant in Sydney. The restaurant includes a wonderful choice of organic tapas plates to share, organic spelt (flour) pizzas, organic main courses, sides, salads and sweet things. When booking a function, whether it be an engagement party or wedding, a high tea, a book launch or a big birthday dinner, you can be assured (my me!), that the combination of Executive Chef Simon Lawson's amazing food, Stylist Lyn Yu's talent to make it all look so good, and Lyn and her team's friendly front of house and table service, you won't be disappointed.
There is also the Agape Food Truck which hits the Sydney streets in the evenings and on the weekends, serving up organic street food made with love; spelt pizzas, spelt tacos, tapas and more, plus sweet delights.
On May 5th Agape Organic Restaurant and Bar hosted the Naked Food 'Paddock to Plate' Love Feast, it was such a lovely day celebrating farmers and the wonderful produce that comes from their paddock to our plate.
I was privileged to share with the guests about my passion for organics, wholefoods and the hard working farmers and producers who grow our food. We also heard from one of the farmers Rob from Gundooee beef and then Chef Simon said a few words. At the end of the afternoon I was able to sell and sign copies of my Naked Food Cookbook. Thank you Simon & Lyn & Nicky for having me at Agape.
I wanted to share a few pics of the event with you, Executive Chef Simon Lawson's food is something to be really enjoyed, I just love his talent in the kitchen and his sister Lyn Yu's divine styling and service on the afternoon and always, makes you want to return for more.
