Event:
A peripatetic perambulation through Perth's finest fooderies
I don't know if you remember but some years ago in Perth there was a fashion for 'Progressive Dinners' which were entreés at one home, mains at another and sweet course at a third, maybe coffee and liqueurs at the fourth.

It's a lovely idea and based, patently, on the European habit of dining at several restaurants in an evening spreading the meal over various venues.

This is obviously really only possible in cities with a very high number of restaurants, into which category Perth now happily falls. It was, after all, hightened awareness of drink driving that put paid to progressive dinners, but you can certainly walk after a few wines.

This continental culture was brought to Australia by siblings Ben Daley and his sister Carly Griffin and Ben's partner Maddy Magi-Prowse and is now running happily in Brisbane, Sydney and now Perth.

Their brainchild is called Bite Sip Stroll and this unique dining event is about to launch its new Perth season starting on May 20. The premium culinary adventure allows you to experience some of Perth's finest restaurants and wines.

The afternoon gourmet exploration involves guests visiting four of the most awarded restaurants in town enjoying distinctive dishes prepared by the head chefs of each establishment with wine to match, selected by experts from Wine Selectors Tasting Panel.

The award winning Perth restaurants involved this year are The Flour Factory, Varnish on King, 1907 & The Trustee.

Ben says: "It's just a great way to experience the city's finest food and wines in a single day and meet new people along the way. Last year's Perth event was a sell-out so was are expecting a rush of bookings when word gets out about this year's event."

Tickets to Bite Sip Stroll are $129 and available at the website.
