Sichuan Snack Fair

Fire in the disco.

Fuchsia Dunlop, doyenne of Sichuan cooking, flies into Melbourne and teams up with Dainty Sichuan, Spice Temple and 10 of the city’s other top restaurants to pay tribute to China’s spiciest regional cuisine with a free, family-friendly celebration of Sichuan province’s greatest dishes.

Wander from stand to stand, from tasting to talk, demonstration to dish, from hot food to cold beer, and get a true taste of one of China’s most popular culinary exports, all in a mix of Mandarin and English.

Among the talents paying tribute to their favourite Sichuan dishes with stalls at the fair are:
- Fuchsia Dunlop, writer, cook and Sichuan food expert
- Dainty Sichuan
- Spice Temple
- Lee Ho Fook
- Supernormal
- Sun Kitchen
- Super Ling
- Belles Hot Chicken
- Bowl Bowl
