Melbourne Food and Wine Festival 2016
A smorgasbord of sipping and sampling.
February 17, 2016
Gather the troops — and your stretchiest clothing — for a solid ten days of sipping and sampling. It's March, and that means the dinner plates are out for the city's biggest excuse for eating and drinking itself silly: the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival.
Running from March 4-13, there are over 290 events on offer. So whether you’re a seasoned foodie or just looking for something new to learn, do or taste, there’s a smorgasbord of events to try. Mooch some mussels, get the lowdown on mushrooms or see how food pairs with fiction.
This year's festival hub will be an urban dairy at Queensbridge Square, where a feast of cheese, yoghurt and ice-cream makers will gather from around the corner and across the globe to produce their signature creamy delights. Home and homage to all things dairy, the likes of Big Gay Ice Cream, Gelato Messina, Gontran Cherrier and make an appearance, as well as world-leading experts who’ll be leading dairy workshops.
