Welcome to Our Kitchens

Hit some of Bendigo's best eateries on a five-hour roaming feast.

Time is usually of the essence on an out-of-town trip, so you want to make sure you're hitting the best spots, particularly when it comes to meal times. This autumn, Bendigo is running a roaming tour that does all the hard work for you, so you can spend less time researching and more time feasting. Welcome to Our Kitchens, taking place on Sunday, March 17, will feature five different kitchens, a whole heap of local produce and an insurmountably tasty time in general.

The tour is led by local guides Food Fossickers, who are experts at where to find the foodie goods. Across a five-hour period, you'll sample the best of Bendigo's local produce, hear from chefs and food makers and make your way around town on foot to pop into the various venues.

Your produce crawl will take you to Masons of Bendigo, The Good Loaf Sourdough Bakery, Sangria Spanish Tapas Bar, Wholefoods Kitchen, Hoo-gah and Indulge Fine Belgian Chocolates. Tickets are $75 per person and partakers will get a savoury dish and a sweet treat at each venue, plus a limited-edition plate, handmade by Bendigo Pottery, to take home. For an extra fee, you can match a locally produced beverage to each dish — which is probably wise as walking and learning can be thirsty work.

The Welcome to Our Kitchens tour starts at 11am on Sunday, March 17. To book your tickets, head to the Bendigo Tourism website
