Admittedly, I mainly ate cheese at Melbourne’s Good Food & Wine Show, and a few Blush tomatoes. My plus-one had the wine part covered, rating Golding as her number one preference.

After a few rounds of the stalls, because you never know what you may have missed the previous round, we decided to watch the talented Matt Moran take to the stage and cook crispy chicken.

The Convention & Exhibition Centre was mixed with foodies, wine connoisseurs, lovers of the food industry showing us the future of the marketplace, and the raw workers from the land that usually remain behind the scenes growing and producing everything us Melbourne foodies love to devour. Hearing from the farmers about the processes and motivations behind their brands was touching, the passion to deliver quality and good flavours lives in all of them.

Get down to the Convention & Exhibition Centre Saturday the 4th and Sunday the 5th and see for yourself how much energy goes into what we put on our plates and in our glasses.

The talked about one-hundred-dollar Haute Dog is available at the food truck stall, served to you by some charismatic guys who, when I was there, invited me into the truck for a look and a photo before heading over to deliver a Haute Dog to Hamish & Andy.

A photo set with vintage costumes, a table full of (maybe fake) food and professional photographer Karin Locke awaits you, ready to take your snap!
