Beyond the buzz of the Festival in March, there are hundreds of other food and wine events taking place year-round across Victoria, showcasing the very things that make Melbourne - and our surrounding regions - a gastronomic playground: An abundance of fresh seasonal produce, bustling food markets, innovative chefs and their award-winning restaurants, expert winemakers, the warmest hospitality and passionate artisan producers.
On the day that I attended, there were Italian cooking classes and an Urban Coffee Garden. This had coffee bushes in pots balanced on a castle made of wooden pallets and of course, lots and lots of coffee being made and consumed by the gallon. Melbourne really has the best coffee in the nation!
