The Melbourne Good Food & Wine Show rolls out across the Queen's Birthday long weekend from Friday June 5th to Monday the 8th at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre at South Wharf.
It's impossible for taste buds not to be tempted and senses stimulated with all that's on offer. More than 100 exhibitors will be showing strutting their fine food stuff, with plenty of premier wine and boutique beer makers out in force too. Expect the unexpected. Be tempted, taste, try and buy and, if you're anything like me, you'll need a fat, friendly trolley to pack all your goodies into.
Now, that's a curly one
There'll be plenty of food experiences to appeal to all palates, whether a food truck fix (or course, you don't eat the actual truck...) at the Grazing Garden or a creamy, tasty meander down Cheese Alley.
This year's line-up of chefs to learn from and be inspired by includes: the cheeky Spanish Miguel Maestre; the UK's iconic chef Ainsley Harriott; MoVida's Frank Camorra and many more.
Get there on Friday for fewer crowds to contend with if you can; get there early for a full day of soaking it all in. Come to think of it, just get there!
