Bank of Melbourne World's Longest Brunch
A communal feast of epic proportions, headed up by two of Melbourne's brunch heroes, descends on Melbourne.
The World's Longest Lunch has long been a staple of the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival program, led by some of the city's top chef talent during its time. But this year, we get to meet its younger, hipper and perhaps even more Melbourne sibling — the inaugural Bank of Melbourne World's Longest Brunch.
Descending on the lawns of Treasury Gardens on Saturday, March 13, expect a sumptuous three-course brunch feast helmed by two of the city's brunch-slinging heroes: Lune Croissanterie's Kate Reid and cafe heavyweight Nathan Toleman (Three Bags Full, Top Paddock and Higher Ground).
Your tastebuds are in excellent hands as you sit down to this epic feed, tucking into plates like smashed avo with beetroot and feta; broccolini and kale salad featuring a soft-boiled egg and almond hummus; and a decadent riff on bread and butter pudding made with croissants.
The menu will showcase scores of much-loved local producers and, like any good brunch, the liquid accompaniments will be flowing. Each $85 ticket includes a Coffex batch brew and either a glass of Victorian bubbly or a Brick Lane beer. And you can order and pay for further drinks throughout the morning thanks to a cashless system by Mr Yum.
