Spring Book Series by Mike

Back to No.1 Bent Street

If you’ve ever wanted to start a cookbook club, this is your chance to  learn from the best.

We are thrilled to bring you the second edition of author dinners for our Spring Book Series by Mike, an exclusive program of bespoke dining experiences and conversations at No.1 Bent Street. From old style barbeque to household favourites, Mike takes on some of Australia’s biggest food authors’ recipes, while Barbara Sweeney from Food & Words leads them in conversation.

Talking about food is always more engaging when you’re eating it at the same time. Come along to our handpicked Spring Series program and feel inspired, enjoy a family-style meal among friends and, maybe even learn something. For that extra special touch, purchase a signed, personalised copy of each author’s book on the night.

There are only 80 spots available for each evening, so don’t miss out!

September 5 | Jess Pryles

Take your barbeque game to the next level and learn meat mastery with Australian-born, Texan-by-choice grill guru, Jess Pryles, in Australia to launch her new cook book Hard Core Carnivore. Mike cooks a menu from the book – sizzling, smokey meat and all-American sides, while Barbara and Jess will chew the fat on all things meat: from cuts & shortcuts, smoke and fire to tools and techniques. You’ll go home armed with all the tips you’ll need to be a winner on the barbecue.

Time Tuesday 5 September, 6.30pm booking for a 7pm start
Location 1 Bent Street, Sydney NSW 2000
