The city’s hallmark foodie festival is back and bigger than ever – but in a city as tasty as ours, would we expect anything less?
Running from Friday March 31 until Sunday April 9, the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival will showcase the very best this delectable city has to offer. Culinary playgrounds will pop up across the CBD offering anything from sweet treats to French delicacies to fine drops from Victoria’s best wine producers. Safe to assume you’ll need to have your stretchy pants on hand for this one.
This year, Melbourne has the distinct honour of hosting one of the biggest events on the global culinary stage, The World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards. To celebrate, the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival will be inviting eight of these talented chefs to partake in the festival’s signature MasterClass series, sharing premier advice and kitchen knowledge to us everyday food lovers. The best part? Tickets are only $35.
Wine and dine your way across the city with highlights including the River Graze, which sees a culinary playground set up along the Yarra Promenade, Movida y Moritz, an afternoon laneway party with pinchos, croquetas and tins of ice cold Moritz beer shipped from Barcelona, and the unmissable Burger block party.
