The Good Food & Wine Show is essentially the culmination of what happens when you give Australia’s foodie community the best produce and permission to create whatever the hell they want, really. Picture a bunch of local foodies going mad in Willy Wonka’s factory for a few days and you’re on the right track.
If wine ice cream, smelly cheese, ribs, pizza masterclasses, and just eating a bunch of delicious food with expertly matched wine is your kind of thing, then the Good Food & Wine Show has your name written all over it.
Look, you could go in unprepared, shut your eyes, spin in a circle, and have an amazing time at whatever stall you land on, but, the best magic happens when you get more strategic about things and secure tickets to this year’s best events. Tickets to the Good Food & Wine Show are just $25 when booked in advance (before July 11, 2017) and for specially discounted VIP tickets just for our TUL readers, click here!
Plus, all of Australia's best chefs will be together in one place! We're talking Manu Feildel, Gary Mehigan, Matt Moran, Adam Liaw, and Rick Stein's son, Jack Stein—so you know it's going to be a goodie.
Now, let’s get planning!
Wine Ice Cream—Yes, Wine Ice Cream
Vinomofo is not only nailing the online wine space (this is a snob-free zone, thank you very much), but they’re also bringing out WINE ICE CREAM. Nope, this isn’t a drill—it’s the real deal, folks. So, mosey on down to Vinomofo’s Adventure Park and prepare to meet your new favourite food, ever. Oh, and the ice cream is free too. What a bunch of legends.
Champagne And Oyster Bar
There’s no aphrodisiac like…champagne and oysters? The Champagne Taittinger and Oyster Bar is where you’ll find us at this year’s GFWS. Why? Because they’re dishing out flutes of bubbles and fresh, delicious oysters from some of Australia’s best providers. Make a purchase from the bar and you could end up winning a trip to Champagne too!
Pizza Masterclasses With The Master
It’s a pretty well-known fact that 400 Gradi are the masterminds behind Australia’s absolute best pizza, so it only makes sense that the man behind it all, Johnny Di Francesco, would share his secrets in a pizza masterclass. We’re talking dough technique, flour ratios, topping selection—you know, all the most important things in life.
The Smelly Cheese Project Does Perth
The Smelly Cheese Project are a bunch of our mates from an Adelaide-based cheese shop who appreciate the finer things in life, like smelly cheese, obvs. And because shouting your love for things from the rooftops is very blasé, they’re doing smelly cheese ‘journeys’ instead, which we think is just as good. And there’s matched wine, which is always appreciated. Count us in.
Ribs & Reds
No prizes for guessing what this one is all about, then? Ribs & Reds is a sensory explosion of pairing ribs with rosso, which is really all we need in a life. Grab a ticket and buckle up for a few glasses of Australia’s best reds, and stickiest ribs. It’s equal parts fancy, and messy.
Go Local With Kleenheat Kitchen
Kleanheat Kitchen brings everyone’s fave My Kitchen Rules exports, Eva and Deb, to the stage to spill the beans on their best cooking tips and tricks. The girls will be showcasing WA’s best local produce from Harvey Beef, Mount Barker chicken, and Buy West Eat Best. We’re drooling already!
Wine Appreciation, Finally!
Let’s just pretend for a second that we don’t treat every single day as Wine Appreciation Day because the Riedel Drinks Lab are throwing free wine appreciation classes each day of the Good Food & Wine Show.
Cheese Alleys Are A Real Thing
Sweet dreams are made of cheese. Or something. Tucker’s Cheese Alley is just that, a total dream—rows of Buffalo mozzarella, cheddar, camembert, goat’s cheese, creamy brie…all from Australia’s absolute best cheese producers.
