For the uninitiated, the Gourmet Cinema is the ultimate event for any Melbourne foodie, let alone those who are also interested in classic movies.
Setting up shop at Caulfield Racecourse for ten days this March—Gourmet Cinema collaborates with amazing restaurants from around Melbourne to produce a menu around the film that’s showing that particular day. The likes of Tokyo Tina, Fish & Chippery By The Atlantic, Baby Pizza and L’Hotel Gitan will be bringing their famous dishes to the event for your mouth to enjoy while your eyes and ears are focussed on the big screen where you can catch movies like Amélie, Slumdog Millionaire, Pulp Fiction and Blade Runner.
To get an idea of what you’re in for, on Wednesday, March 8 the cinema will be showing Amélie, where L’Hotel Gitan is the feature restaurant of the night. They’ve put together a French-inspired menu featuring a croquet monsieur, frites, mushroom and mozzarella croquettes, and hickory smoked salmon in a milk bun with crème fraîche, crunchy cucumber, capers and dill.
When: March 2 – March 12
Where: Caulfield Racecourse, Station Street, Caulfield East
