Tania and Soon in the Food I am kitchen in Wagga Wagga

Dinner Party

Take some of Australia’s best farm-fresh produce, add a paddock-to-plate focus, combine with a dose of flavours from around the world and you’ve got Food I Am.

Founder and hostess Tania Sibrey’s passion is food, and be careful - it’s contagious. Add to the mix, master of Asian cuisine chef Soon Lee Low and you have a true recipe for success.

Food I am is part cooking school, part private dining experience. Joining the team throughout the year are guest chefs ready to impart their culinary knowledge on to the new class of students.

3) Regional produce markets – “We are so lucky to have so many great regional producers in the Wagga Wagga + Surrounds area. Visiting produce markets and supporting local growers is always high on my list of things to do.

4) The Roundabout Restaurant – “You can’t go past an evening of fine dining at The Roundabout Restaurant. Their service and modern Australian menu are perfect.”

5) Artisan Baker – “From fresh baked baguettes, Pain de campagne and French pastries, to a great little café to sit and enjoy an espresso and outstanding almond croissant – the French Artisan Baker is a must visit when in Wagga Wagga.”
