the good food shopping guide 2011 lands

Earlier this year, I worked on the Foodies' Guide to Sydney 2011, with editors Helen Greenwood and John Newton, as well as Good Living writers Carli Ratcliff and Merelyn Franks. Research for the book took us all over Sydney and regional areas to find out what's great about food shopping in this great city of ours.

With a number of changes to the publishers and, after four years, a new name: The Good Food Shopping Guide, (yes, there is another publication out this year using our old name, but that ain't us) this year's book is set to be bigger (and better) than ever before. We are now part of the spectacular collection of food guides that includes the Good Food Guide and much more.

There are a number of great new awards categories that will be announced during the official launch at Formaggi Ocello in the coming week, including Regional Hero, Young Achiever and Best Overall.

Thanks to Fairfax Media, we're celebrating the launch of the new Good Food Shopping Guide 2011, by offering you the chance to win an advance copy of this brand spankin' book.

There are 5 copies to win and all you need to do is (in 25 words or less) tell us:

What is your favourite food shop in Sydney and why? *

Judges Helen Greenwood, John Newton and myself will pick the best 5 answers and a copy of the book will be winging its way to you.

I love Simon Johnson in Pyrmont, the interior is great with exposed brick walls and high ceiling and entering the cheese cellar is like entering cheese heaven!
The people working there are friendly and helpful and it's so close to the fish market(my other favorite shopping place in Sydney!)

I love Donna Hay General Store, Woollahra. I just love the clean, fresh look Donna Hay always represents. And you can have a treat while shopping – maybe a truffle, a macaron, a cupcake? Why not all...

I love Harris Farm. Wish there was one in south-west Sydney. Wagyu, duck, lamb backstrap. Ahhh... if only is were closer to home.
