We couldn't fit them all in one article, so we will spread them over three: SWF Part 1, SWF Part 2 and SWF Volunteers. Richard Fidler, Annabel Crabb and two festival-goers all share their reading and cookbook tips.

Iconic literary food moments
According to legend, the first Bellini was poured in the summer of 1948 by Giuseppe Cipriani, founder and barman of the legendary Harry’s Bar in Venice. Located just off the Grand Canal, the iconic bar was frequented by the likes of Humphrey Bogart, Truman Capote, and Ernest Hemingway. Cipriani's recipe calls to gently stir two parts Prosecco and one part fresh peach pureé, served in a chilled flute.

What an amazing journey it’s been. We started with a dream. We wanted to celebrate two things that we really love – cooking and reading. Wouldn’t it be fun, we thought, to cook a meal inspired by a book … and then invite the author of that book over to enjoy our feast and talk about their creative journey and inspirations. We had no money. We had no time. We had no idea. And it's been a blast!

Loving the Sydney Writers Festival!

Wow! What a fabulous few days we’ve had at the Sydney Writers Festival. The Carriageworks is a great venue – plenty of space, groovy eateries and bars, and wonderful lounges to relax after author sessions. And what a fabulous line-up of authors. It has a great central hub that makes it easy for people to mingle and meet, and watch the authors zooming through to their next appearance.

Kate's review
A contemporary family drama set in Alabama, Before I Let You Go by Kelly Rimmer is a powerful and heart-wrenching examination of the lives of two sisters and their shared love for a tiny baby. The story begins when Lexie Vidler – a doctor with a carefully built perfect life – hears her younger sister’s voice for the first time in years. Annie is a heroin addict who has caused a great deal of harm to Lexie’s life.

Sarah's review
Heroin addiction is not usually a subject that would attract me but Kelly Rimmer's voice is amazing, and from the opening page, I was hooked. Before I Let You Go is a beautiful story about two sisters – one who overcomes a harsh upbringing: Zoe, and one who doesn’t: Annie. It insightfully delineates the repercussions, both psychological and material, for loved ones when one family member fails to gain a foothold in the world.
