[Sponsored] Watch cooking demonstrations from Poh, learn to dance and hear music from across the globe at this free festival
Greville Street and Grattan Garden will welcome this free cultural festival hosted by writer, actor, social-activist, comedian and producer Candy Bowers (who you may also recognise her from the triumphant alt-cabaret Hot Brown Honey). Presented by the City of Stonnington, Flavours will allow you to explore and celebrate the traditions and heritage of different cultures across the world through cooking demonstrations, live music and interactive performances.
Coinciding with Cultural Diversity Week and the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, this family-friendly day will kick off at 11am. Enjoy lion dancing from Hong De Dragon and Lion Dance Association and hear the music of the Cook Islands from the 15-strong musical and dance group Sounds of Polynesia. Indigenous Hip Hop Projects will be on site teaching hip hop workshops, artist Jann Daly will host hands-on craft classes and the Hope Foundation will teach the art of origami. The world stage will also host performances from the Eastern Delights, the Mariachi Los Romanticos, the Tumbarumba Band and the Public Opinion Afro Orchestra.
The Flavours Kitchen will fire up cooking demonstrations from MasterChef contestant Poh and Charlie Carrington from South Yarra's five-star restaurant, Atlas Dining. There will also be plenty of food stalls that span many different global cuisines so you can snack away.
