Italian Wine + Food Festival 2018

All the porchetta, pizza and Prosecco you could want.

Pizza. Pasta. Salumi. Gelato. And don't even get us started on the booze. The Italians have gifted the world with some pretty spectacular food and drink — and the good news is you'll find all that and more at the Italian Wine + Food Festival.

Taking over the Royal Exhibition Building on Sunday, May 27, this all-day gastronomic bonanza will welcome the proprietors and chefs from some of the most beloved Italian eateries in town. We're talking 400 Gradi and Massi, to name but a few. There'll be cooking demonstrations and wine-tasting workshops.

Those looking to put what they learn into practice can swing by the festival food market and find all the ingredients they need to cook an Italian feast at home — or stop by the free bruschetta station for some sustenance. And once you're done shopping you can kick back with a glass of vino, or perhaps a cocktail from the Aperitivi Bar.
