The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry

The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry: Lee Tran Lam quizzes chefs, critics, bar staff and other people from the world of food about their career highlights and lowlights, war stories and favourite places to eat and drink in Sydney.

Jul 8, 2013

What's it like to stage a dinner in the back lot of Opera Australia? Or throw a random soup party in a park and hope you don't get busted? Kristen Allan would know, as these are some of the guerilla culinary events she's organised with Full Circle (the team also behind The Eat-in pop-up restaurant in Chippendale earlier this year). She also runs excellent cheesemaking workshops at Cornersmith, so she's also an expert on ricotta, labne, and all things curds and whey – and in fact, can personally tell you what's more unappealing than eating maggot-riddled cheese (you'll be surprised by her answer!) or the lovely story behind the most expensive cheese she's ever bought. Kristen also chats about her unusual career path into the world of food, her time at much-loved Italian restaurants Vini and Berta, and her involvement with Cornersmith's newest establishment – opening in August.
