October is here and it is bringing with it a bunch of exciting foodie events for all sorts of tastebuds. Here’s all the food news you missed this week.

  • A little birdy told us Good Times Milk Bar has just released their new Spring menu featuring a luscious Seafood Linguine and French Toast with Callebaut white chocolate and espresso cream. Oh carbs, how we love you.

  • One Drop Brewery Co released a beer made from Kellogg Corn Flakes. Who knew that was even possible? Not us, but we’re excited to take the trip down cornflake memory lane, except this time boozy. The cereal beer is said to taste sweet, fruity and creamy, with ripe notes of strawberry, passionfruit, coconut and mango, backed up by a tropical bitterness. 

  • Melbourne’s legendary pizza institution, Ladro, partnered up with The Grand Hyatt Hotel to bring a killer lunch offer that includes a serve of succulent porchetta, a Peroni beer and a side of Italian seasoned fries, all for a very justifiable price of $35. Get to it.

  • Dust off your Lederhosen because there’s yet another Oktoberfest party except for this time, it's fairytale-themed. This epic street party on Southbank gives guests a delicious three-course meal of classic Bavarian dishes as well as beer and schnapps to get the real shenanigans started.

  • Sample ‘Wagyu’ lamb for free at a tasting session hosted by Gary’s Meats. The meat in question here is the rare Mottainai breed of lamb, raised exclusively on an organic diet and described having buttery, rich meat that’s full of umami goodness.  We’re not saying that you should go, but it might be your only chance to eat richly-marbled lamb at no cost and hey, it sounds pretty good too. 

  • Being just 5 minutes from the train station, Coburg residents get to pick up Gnoccheria’s handmade Artisan pasta products whenever they want (and we’re insanely jealous). This family-run business makes their pasta fresh daily, lovingly kneading the dough into pizza bases, lasagna and gnocchi. They have a new range of vegan, gluten-free gnocchi and extended their opening hours to 6.30 PM on Monday, so nobody gets left out.

  • Melbourne’s favourite Night Noodle Markets just announced that they’re back for another year.  Get your stretchy pants and prepare to fill up your belly with as much juicy pork dumplings and Japanese pancakes as you can, ‘cause in terms of Asian street food, it doesn’t get much better than this.
