We are Getting Hungry for the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival 2015


The Melbourne Food & Wine Festival turns Melbourne into a foodie haven for 17 food coma filled days. 17 days that Melbourne cherishes every year. As the festival continues to grow, it’s impossible for festival goers to even scratch the surface of everything the event has to offer, so one needs to create a list of priorities. One of those tough choices in life. 

The big players are back this year, with half day sessions available to Langham Melbourne Masterclass making it easier to get to more activities in the one day. See yakitori master Matt Abergel (Yardbird, RONIN and Sunday’s Grocery, Hong Kong) work with nose-to-tail American Jamie Bissonnette (Coppa, Boston & Toro, Boston and New York, USA); or maybe watching Ruth Rogers (River Café, UK) and Newfoundland hunter gatherer Jeremy Charles (Raymonds, St John’s, Canada) is more your kind of thing.


For those who like to sip as much as chew, Acqua Panna Perfect Match will be doing what it does best. Bringing experts together to show us just how to pair our food with our drinks. For the serious wine drinkers among us, head to Return to Terroir where 50 of the world’s finest biodynamic winemakers talk lunar rhythms and holistic viticulture as you sip some of their latest creations.

If you’re more of a quick simple event kind of person, you can indulge in the Signature Express Lunch Series at some of the city’s finest restaurants, or enjoy a simple bite and drink as Crawl ‘n’ Bite hits up some of the best bars around our streets.

Worlds Longest Lunch

Each year the Queensbridge Square is turned into something wonderful. One year it was a rotating bar, demonstrating some of the city’s finest bartenders, this year it’s an Artisan Bakery & Bar where local and international bakers will take their turn at baking a selection of breads and baked treats for guests to dine in or take on the run. Another one of those simple events you can head to more than once. An after work drink with friends goes nicely with baked goods.

There is so much more on offer, it would be remiss not to check out the entire calendar: www.melbournefoodandwine.com.au/event-calendar
