Our Story

Welcome to Sirocco South

Mic Giuliani is one of the caped crusaders of Tasmanian food. Foraging, tasting and investigating different ingredients, Mic spends a lot of time thinking about food. When he’s not thinking about it, he’s in his commercial kitchen cooking up magic, using fresh and foraged Tasmanian ingredients to create dishes for Sirocco South – his fabulous take on Italian cuisine.

“Family was my food inspiration, for sure,” Mic says. “My mum and my grandparents – they were really old-style Italian when it came to fresh ingredients and food. Their view was something like, ‘Air is air and water’s okay to drink, but there’s all this fabulous stuff growing that’s great to eat.’”

Mic has been sharing his take on traditional recipes with a much larger Tasmanian family for years now and you can find him, the first and third Sundays of the month at Hobart’s Farm Gate Market, and at special events including Dark Mofo. Now, he’s decided to invite people along for his favourite food pastime – foraging ingredients to create a long-table Tasmanian dining experience – literally, from paddock to plate.

I really enjoyed this unique experience with Mic. He has a great knowledge of food, he is an engaging storyteller and he is completely at home in this space. Mic has the “hospitality gene”, you’ll feel welcome and well fed!

a marvellous collection of beautifully prepared and very tasty foods collected from close by. I would never have imagined that “weeds” could be so tasty. A wonderful degustation of a kind I have never experienced anything like it! Mmmmmm
