Food News – Sydney Festival
You’ve only got a few days left to check out the Sydney Festival Village, which wraps up in Hyde Park North on January 25. With free entertainment and an expanded array of food options, it's worth visiting, even if you're not eagerly clutching a show ticket.
Food News – Mushrooms
Mushrooms – I love them – so when the opportunity arose to tour an 1866 disused railway tunnel full of them, I leapt at the chance.

Noel is also the charismatic, spore-loving host for the occasional tours, which next run on the Australia Day Long Weekend.
