This year's Melbourne Food and Wine Festival has a jam-packed program and Dutchess, the Crafty Squire, Beer Deluxe Fed Square and Newmarket Hotel will all be hosting special events.
Dutchess will be celebrating the dynamic relationships they have with their farmers, fisherman and suppliers with the Relationships with Land and Sea lunch on April 1.
The Crafty Squire will host two beer-matched, five-course lunches on Saturday April 1 and Sunday April 2, aptly titled James Squire Versus the World. The lunches will transport you to some of the most famous beer-brewing destinations by serving five traditional dishes, each paired with a James Squire beer and a local brew of the same style.
Beer Deluxe Fed Square will host a brewing paradise, with the arrival of the Melbourne Brewers Collective on on Saturday April 1. The beer garden will play host to nine local breweries pouring a special Melbourne Food and Wine Festival beer alongside their own brews.
Finally the Newmarket Hotel will be hosting the SoCal Lunch Smash everyday from Saturday April 1 to Saturday April 8. You will have the chance to explore the ingredients and flavours of Southern California and South America, with each dish taking inspiration from the vast and different regions.
