Sydney art and culture hotspot Carriageworks will host a Spanish pop-up restaurant this January as part of the Sydney Festival, curated by renowned Australian chef, Darren Taylor. Running every day from January 9 to 27, COSECHA will be serving lunch, afternoon nibbles and dinner – plus a range of drinks – all with a spicy Spanish flare.
Darren Taylor is a big name in the food world, known as the original executive chef at Bilson’s in Circular Quay (now Quay). For one year, he also worked in Restaurant Troisgros in Roanne, France, famous for its three Michelin star rating. He has done multiple stints at Sydney venue Buon Ricordo, a two-hatted restaurant, with chef Armando Perccucio, and since 1995 he has managed the fine food catering company Darren Taylor Catering.
The menu at COSECHA captures the experience of punchy Spanish food in a refined and artistic setting. Taylor will draw on his lengthy experience of European cooking, and his menu promises to transport you straight to the old streets of San Sebastian. From afternoon share-plates, charcuterie and cheese boards, to paella stations and evening tapas, there’s an abundance of all-time favourites matched with unexpected and refreshing new twists. There’s a hefty beer and wine category, plus the afternoon ‘Fiesta’ list of refreshing Spanish classics: Sangria, chilli margaritas and mojitos – olé!
Having such a celebrated chef take part in the Sydney Festival is exciting for foodies and art-lovers alike, and COSECHA is located centrally to ensure maximum accessibility for other events nearby. Taylor’s gastronomical finesse and widespread experience guarantee a packed-out couple of weeks at COSECHA, so book ahead to ensure you can sink your teeth into Spain this summer – without even leaving Sydney.
