Twelve countries were represented, each featuring their brand of cuisine, cooked and served by people dressed in traditional costume.

There was the local fare one has grown to appreciate from living in multicultural Sydney such as yakitori from Japan, paella from Spain, souvlaki from Greece, falafel and kebbeh from Lebanon, gozleme from Turkey, dumplings from China and tandoori chicken from India.

Among the more exotic, there was the traditional Maori hangi banquet from Aotearoa, fajitas from Mexico, empanadas from Peru, corn pancakes from Venezuela and a delicious meat curry from Ethiopia served in a pancakeand topped with different types of lentils.

Sharing a 20-metre long communal table, people sat down to eat a dish from Mexico while the person beside them was trying a specialty from Aotearoa. Such is the cultural diversity that Sydney offers, and nothing brings people from various backgrounds together than sharing the love of food.

The stage played hosts to entertainers including international song and dance. There was face painting for the children as well as their contribution to the One World Global Table globe. The event was an initiative of Waverley Council.
