This Saturday night, Sydney’s streets will be taken over by a pretty unique kind of dinner party. Ride On Dinner is an 'urban meal adventure' in which young designer Anthony Hamilton-Smith will lead a group of up to 80 people on a bike tour around the city’s inner suburbs, and then cook for them using his purpose-built roadside kitchen/trailer – and their own pedal power. His self-designed, award-winning ‘slow kitchen’ is powered by the energy produced during the ride, and Hamilton-Smith will cook up a storm for the troops with it drawing on the principles of the slow food movement.
One of Object Gallery’s 14 Spring Series events and running as part of Sydney Design 2010, the tour will incorporate the best of design, food and sustainability and should be a rather fun and funny night to boot.

With winter drawing to a close, Object Gallery greets the new season with an exciting and vibrant line-up. The Spring Series, which kicked off last week, provides a 10-week forum that allows for individual exploration and innovative exchange in all forms.
You know the local design sphere has come to fruition when more of our homegrown studios are stepping into the field, and one of the event’s many highlights is Big, which features some of these independent studios responsible for Sydney’s ever-evolving artistic landscape. Also dropping in is Design Now 2009 winner, Anthony Hamilton-Smith, where he will be leading the nation’s fervent foodies and cyclists on an adventure with ride-on dinner. Kino Loves Object, part of a global filmmaking network, is an event dedicated to bring out the Spielberg in you, so get your creative
juices flowing and start sending in your films.
With so much going on this spring, one thing’s for sure, we know where we’ll be.
