I'm a freelance journalist and public relations consultant specialising in arts and entertainment.
Celebrate Double Bay with a day of hedonism at the first-ever Double Bay Food and Art Festival.

Indulge your senses with a menu of delectable fine food and art at the debut event as part of the Sydney International Food Festival.

According to the website: "Food and art lovers will be tempted by a delectable array of offerings, including the opportunity to discover new gourmet treats and meet local artists."

Guilfoyle Park will be transformed into foodie heaven at the Taste Woollahra Open Air Cafe. Among the gourmet treats served up from the Bay and surrounds best restaurants including Catalina, La Scala, Piadina and a pop-up wine bar, with the opportunity to savour some of the best drops from around Australia.

Feed your appetite for food and art at various activities including: the Great Dessert Cook-Off, art classes, live music, entertainment and the internationally recognised Body Painting competition.

The stiff competition starts at 3pm where artists and their models will have three hours to transform the human body as canvas to a work of art based on the theme "seven deadly sins".

The walking artworks will be showcased and judged at 6pm on the main stage with performances by each model to music. Prizes included product cash and trophies valued at over $5000. It's free to enter only pre-registration required:

World champion body painter and local artist Tim Gratton hopes to set a world record at the festival by painting 1000 people in one day.

Gratton together with performance artist and model Sarina del Fuego will host a two hour Burlesque drawing class commencing at 11am.

If cooking is more your thing you can enter the Masterchef dessert competition for $5. Pre-register and bring along your favourite cake or dessert to be judged on the day by Jimmy Seervai - a masterchef finalist, Natasha Moy - Food in Focus food critic and Julie McGuigan.

If tasting all the goods on offer is more your style try one of the special set price international menus offered by the area's restaurants and cafes.

The kids will be catered to as well with activities including face painting, jumping castle, pony rides and Derivan tunnel where children can paint a picture for the Sydney Children's Hospital emergency ambulance bay art project.

Funds raised from an auction of artistic mannequins from the Strike a Pose event, held earlier this year will go to Dr Chris O'Brien's Cancer Centre at RPA Hospital.
