Melbourne Tomato Festival
Time Out says
The humble tomato is king at this food festival
Think about it, the humble tomato is behind some of the best menu items: lasagna, pasta, pizza, and don't get us started on Bloody Marys. So it makes complete sense that the Melbourne Tomato Festival celebrates the farmers, chefs and artisan producers that grow and cook with the red stuff everyday.
This year, the Melbourne Tomato Festival will be showcasing cooking demonstrations by chefs including Karen Martini (Mr Wolf), Grossi Florentino from the namesake Bourke Street restaurant and Movida's Frank Camorra. Learn to make passata so you can preserve the taste of summer for the rest of the year, how to cook with the best in-season tomatoes at home, and how to grow them in your garden in time for next summer.
