To celebrate Sydney’s newest food festival, de Groots Media and King Street Wharf last night joined arms for the launch of The International Food Safari.

Hosted by celebrity Chef Ben O’Donoghue, the evening was celebrated overlooking Sydney Harbour in the elegant surrounds of The Loft.  Maureen de Groot gave a witty opening to the celebrations, thanking all those who have been involved in the organisation of the event. Drums, salsa dancing and the live music kept the atmosphere buzzing late into the night and the effervescent Magdalena Roze posed for the Daily Telegraph cameras.

Guests were taken on a culinary trip across the globe with food stations from each of the participating restaurants offering a speciality dish. The excited crowd enjoyed dishes such as lollipop sushi from Kobe Jones, pizza from Casa Di Nico, spanakopita from Georges Mediterrean Bar and Grill and oysters from Nick’s Seafood Restaurant.
