Lismore dishes up a smorgasbord

LISMORE'S annual celebration of street food won a silver gong at the NSW Tourism Awards last year and 2018 promises to be bigger than ever with more stalls, celebrity chefs and activities for all ages.

The event attracted around 21,000 patrons last year and City Centre Manager Jason Mumford said the event will go ahead today rain, hail or shine.

"We are always refining the event to make it a better experience for food lovers and 2018 will definitely be the best year yet, and we are so excited to have Ash Pollard and Luca Ciano joining the fun,” Mr Mumford said.

Lismore Worker's Club won the People's Choice award in 2017 for their stall and Chef Murray Donkin said he loves the event for connecting "producers, cooks, chefs and the public all in the one place”.

This year they will be serving up two dishes: slow roasted pork char siu with Asian pickled vegetables in a bao bun and szechuan salt and pepper soft shell crab with wakabi seaweed salad and ginger and kewpie mayonnaise on a Vietnamese roll.

Enjoy guest chefs, cooking demos, kids cooking classes, performances and live music at Magellan and Carrington Streets, Lismore from 12 noon - 8pm.
