These days, you don't have to search too hard at all to find shining examples of females kicking serious goals in Victoria's food and drink scene. But come Thursday, March 30, you'll find yourself absolutely surrounded by them, as a lineup of high-flying talent comes together for the Victorian Female Excellence dinner.

Taking over Victoria by Farmer's Daughters as part of Melbourne Food & Wine Festival, this is set to be a female-led feast to remember.

The venue's own star female chefs will be taking the reins for the evening, including Iman Mohamed, Daniela Martinez and Raina Kadar. Together, they'll deliver an exclusive seasonal menu that also celebrates the work of local female producers — think, an autumnal salad starring Holy Goat Nectar cheese and toasted hazelnut, crispy goose fat spuds with guiso sauce, and a white chocolate dessert featuring lemon myrtle and finger lime.

You'll have the chance to discover some of the talented women who've been making a splash within the state's winemaking industry, too, via an exclusive curation of vino set to be showcased on the night. Tickets to the five-course dinner come in at $150, with any drinks available to add on.
