In the only news you need to hear this week, a massive event is coming to Perth dedicated to all things delicious. From wine-filled dining extravaganzas to cheese tastings and celebrity chef showcases, the Good Food & Wine Show is here to make your culinary dreams come true.
The event kicks off Friday 30 July and runs through to Sunday 1 August at the Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre and we honestly can’t think of a better way to spend a weekend. Read on for our top program picks and prepare to drool.
Smelly Cheese Project
If you ask us, cheese is more than just a delicious treat, it’s a way of life—one that we’re very happy to invest our time and energy into. So really, we couldn’t possibly go past the Smelly Cheese Project. Join the Smelly Cheese Shop’s cheese expert, Valérie Henbest, on this glorious exploration into the wonderful world of cheese, where you’ll get to try delicious artisanal cheeses paired with uniquely crafted beverages.
The Kitchen by Harris Scarfe
If cooking shows are your jam, you’ll want to get front row seats to these live cooking demos so you can soak up all the tips, techniques and recipes from your fave celeb chefs in real life. This year, host Sammy Jakubiak will be joined by a growing line-up of top chefs including Miguel Maestre, Brendan Pang, Callum Hann and Colin Fassnidge.
Fever-Tree The Art of Mixing
When it comes to spirits, there’s little we love more than a good gin. And in the land of gin, Fever Tree is our go-to mixer. So who better to lead this exceptional series of masterclasses all about the art of mixing? Grab a $20 ticket and get set to have your mind blown and palette impressed.
Margaret River Wine VIP Lounge
Look, if you’re going to treat yourself to a day of good food and wine, you may as well go all out. That’s where the Margaret River Wine VIP Lounge comes into play. Your ticket includes premium drops from across our favourite wine region all day long as well as a mouth-watering food menu and a special VIP gift to take home. It basically pays for itself.
Wine Selectors Tasting Room
Speaking of good wine, we’re quite partial to a good tasting or two and these intimate tasting sessions with the legends at Wine Selectors are bound to hit the spot. With four uniquely themed tasting rooms to explore, you’ll enjoy four wines, matched to four different plates of food, all led by a wine expert. Sign us up.
There’s loads more happening throughout the weekend. Just head to the website for the full program and tickets.
