Join us for a culinary whirlwind prior to our February Historical Walking Tour.

This month, for only $28 between 12.30 - 2 pm, we will delight in the Sicilian sensations of award-winning gastronomical mastermind Chef Lino Sauro at Olio Kensington Street.

Olio (Italian for olive oil) opened in the beautifully restored Old Rum Store on Kensington Street on January 28 to prove to Sydney why Sicilian is the new Italian.

Sauro comes from a long lineage of self-sufficient Sicilian farmers where he grew up with meals that were created with the quality produce grown on the property. This translates into Sauro’s menu with dishes that reflect a strong connection to his Sicilian roots.

Keeping it in the family, Sauro sources his olive oil - the base of all his dishes - from the family‘s Sicilian farm. Typical of the region, seasonal seafood, wild fennel, raisins, saffron and couscous are hero ingredients on Olio Kensington Street’s menu.

Joined by our tour guide, Historian Catherine Freyne, and Nicky Ginsberg, President of the CCP, we will prepare for the afternoon over delicious food, delighting in the company of like minded people with complimentary wine and engaging conversation.

FEBRUARY HISTORICAL WALKING TOUR

Explore Chippendale’s February Historical Walking Tour will take you on a time-travelling journey through vestiges of the area’s past, guided by professional historian Catherine Freyne on Saturday 18 February, 2 - 3.30pm.

Catherine will lead visitors on a tour of some of Chippendale’s sites of experimentation and innovation: social, technological, botanical, industrial and artistic. Chippendale has been a cradle of experimentation since Thomas Shepherd established his Darling Nursery behind the gin distillery in the 1820s.

The colonial history, industrial heritage and sordid tales beneath Chippendale’s cultural renaissance and vibrant culinary and artistic scene will be revealed in an informal, social setting.

Begin with a glass of complimentary wine at Kensington Street’s resident gallery, Kensington Contemporary. After being immersed in the vibrant atmosphere of this burgeoning international lifestyle destination, head off on an adventure to explore its past.
