Fine dining without the sometimes ridiculous price tag will be the order of the day at a new evening event to start the ball rolling at this year’s Living Smart Festival.
Feast for the Senses will feature a two-course dinner under the stars at Speers Point Park on Friday, September 21, with food prepared by acclaimed Hunter Valley chef, Jimmy Kerr.
Kerr, of Nanna Kerr’s Kitchen in Pokolbin, will source organic produce and seasonal, surplus stock from local farmers, ensuring the menu is both sustainable and delicious.
Mayor of Lake Macquarie, Cr Kay Fraser, said the evening was an opportunity for guests to explore sustainable ideas in a fun, unique setting.
“This will be a fantastic night of exquisite, sustainable food, live entertainment and performances, creative lighting and interactive art,” Mayor Fraser said.
Guests are encouraged to wear recycled fashion in keeping with the Living Smart Festival’s reduce, reuse and recycle message.
Strictly limited tickets to the over-18s event are just $40 and include dinner and locally produced sparkling wine on arrival. Additional drinks – all sourced locally from boutique producers – can be purchased.
The event commences at 6pm and is expected to run until 9pm. Undercover options will be available on the night in case of bad weather.

Nanna Kerr’s Kitchen opened in 2015 and is named in honour of the family’s matriarch, Ann Kerr, grandmother of supermodel Miranda Kerr.
