The Melbourne Food and Wine Festival is back with a jam-packed program of unmissable culinary events

The Melbourne Food and Wine Festival is returning with a bang this year, with a star-studded line-up of international chefs and local food heroes.

The two-week celebration of all things food and drink kicks off with the signature World’s Longest Lunch and World’s Longest Brunch events, headlined by Alla Wolf-Tasker (culinary director of Daylesford’s award-winning Lake House) and Natalie Paull (cake celebrity, best-selling author and founder of Beatrix Bakes that sadly closed in 2022), respectively.

The 2023 iteration will run for ten days, from March 24 to April 2, with the full program recently announced. It's hard to nail down the highlights, but some of the exciting events on offer include Celebrity Sausage, the Baker's Dozen market featuring cult-favourite local bakeries like Lune and Tarts Anon, and a part-Brooklyn bodega, part-Japanese convenience store inspired by 7-Eleven that will be selling the likes of Slurpee cocktails and gourmet sangas. 

An intimidating line-up of international chefs will also grace our city, including Curtis Stone, Yoshihiro Imai of Chef's Table and Jeremy Chan of two-Michelin-starred Ikoyi. Resident Melbourne chefs such as Helly Raichura of Enter Via Laundry and Julia Busuttil Nishimura will be making appearances in the special events program. 

Check out the full program and book your tickets ASAP.
