WA's Good Food & Wine Fest Wrap!


- Me with Masterchef's George Calombaris - AWESOME!

As Editor of Menu Magazine you get to go to some pretty exciting and fun events one which I attended over the weekend - my first Good Food and Wine Festival. I attended the Every Woman Expo last month so sort of had an idea of what these expos were all about but I can now say the Good Food and Wine Festival is in a league of its own.

I mean I don't know if you've all noticed but there is a serious food revolution taking over the country and it is getting bigger by the minute. It seems everyone is getting into the foodie craze and have either become cooks, are learning how to cook or are in the food critic department.

Manning the Menu Magazine stand on Friday I met foodies of all ages who were quick to tell me about their latest creation in the kitchen and where I could find the best place to eat cupcakes in Perth (just so you know Sherbert in Maylands I'm coming for you!) Apparently, yes Perth, we know what we are talking about when it comes to the good stuff - food & wine and it was certainly evident over this bumper food weekend.

My weekend highlights included watching George & Gary's Masterclass, meeting Masterchef judge George Calombaris & Little Caesars super pizza chef Theo Kalogeracos as well as sampling some of the finest wines Australia has to offer. Now tinme to switch gears and prepare for this weekends Truffle Festival...mmmmm

Did you attend the festival? If you did what were your highlights? I'd love to hear from you all.

  1. It was a good show - more people on Saturday than last year and stall holders said people were spending more this year too. Saw Gary and George - very good together. Didn't like the fact that glasses had to be paid for - a lot of people complaining about that. The Fifth Leg resturant was great - nice to try some different dishes but needed more seating. Seemed less wine stalls this year than last.

  3. Thanks for your comment Tellisha, it was a great day. What was my favourite thing you ask, I'd definitely say confronting George after he called all journos losers. He said it in jest and when I showed up with his book he backtracked and said not all were bad & we had a good laugh about it. Keep reading I've got heaps more news to come xo

  4. Food frenzie is taking over for sure. Masterchef was all anybody was speaking about at work for months and how they were practising all the recipes that came up on the show. If it helps us eat better its a good thing.
