This year’s first Good Food & Wine Show kicked off in Melbourne in early June, with the Sydney and Perth shows coming in July, Adelaide’s in October and Brisbane’s in November.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Sydney show.The Good Food & Wine Show includes a selection of Australia’s finest food and wine over three days. Back behind the hot plates in the Fisher & Paykel ‘Celebrity Theatre’ will be leading chefs, George Calombaris, Gary Mehigan, Matt Moran, Manu Feildel and Tobie Puttock, cooking up a culinary storm with new recipes and ingredients.
The Sunbeam Kitchen allows participants to get their hands dirty in one of the hands-on classes learning the art of making espressos and texturing milk or how to make, bake and decorate cupcakes.
The show includes a “journey of tastes and flavours” from some of Australia’s leading gourmet and artisan producers at the regional producers market. Cheese tastings will teach bakers how to appreciate the language of cheese in the ‘CheeseMatters Discovery’ session. Cheese guru, Naomi Crisante, will teach the steps to perfectly match various cheeses with wines or beer.
The ‘BeanScene Coffee Experience’ is exclusive to the Melbourne Show, offering coffee classes, competitions, on-site roasting, domestic espresso machine tips and latte art demonstrations. Leading Australian coffee experts will be on-hand to share their knowledge of coffee with samples provided.
