I am a freelance writer and photographer from Sydney who has now had five books published on fishing. I also write for the NSW Fishing Monthly, Visit the Shire, Fisho App & Tackle Tactics.
I also like to travel and experience new things to do.
Eat, dance and celebrate your way around the world.
The Global Table is now in its seventh year and is still going strong with 12 different food stalls that will transform Oxford Street Mall into a cosmopolitan feast for the senses. While there, you will be able to sit, eat and chat at our 35-metre long communal table with old friends or why not start up a friendly conversation with someone opposite and make some new friends.

Spend a few hours going from stall to stall and eat your way around the world. You can also take in the music, dancing and entertainment that helps to create this massive cultural extravaganza of food, music, dancing and entertainment in the heart of Bondi Junction.
You can also learn how to cook worldly dishes with cooking demonstrations and food tasting throughout the day, including goodies from all the fresh food outlets in Eastgate Shopping Centre. Not only is there food and entertainment at the Global Table, your kids can try out the free face painting and a jumping castle.
While you are there you should check out the cooking demonstrations. Photo courtesy of Waverley Council.
You can also try some of the Brazilian Coxinha de Frango or Hungarian Langos at this year's Global Table feast of food. I am sure I would. Get a group of friends together or take your family along and get a number of different dishes and share them. This will then enable you to try a number of dishes.
I would suggest that you get there a bit early, as not only will the delightful smell of the different aromas excite you, so will the entertainment, which starts at 11am.

So if you are after a great time with family and friends, join in the feast at a 35-metre-long communal table and sit, eat and chat the day away while trying out some delicious foods. It's an opportunity not to be missed.
From what I have been advised, the menu is quite extensive with traditional dishes from 12 different countries. Each portion will be under $10, making it an affordable day out for the whole family and a group of friends.
Why don't you get yourself a group of friends and come along to the Global Table. Photo courtesy of Waverley Council.
