This weekend the Taste of Melbourne Festival 2015 came to town.
Thanks to Elextrolux, Eat My Street went along for the ride. I also got to give away tickets to some of my readers which was ten types of awesome.
Some of Melbourne’s hottest restaurants were there, along with more than 100 artisan producers. There was also live music, tastings on offer, Chef’s to meet and greet and produce to buy.
Some of my favourites included;
Zest Coffee Roasters. I may be a little biased as they are a local company. But also, check out that gorgeous smile! These guys were busy all day long on Sunday.
I tried myself a lovely iced-tea and it was delicious.
Pic’s peanut butter. Mainly because there is a slight peanut butter addiction going on at our house and Pic’s Peanut Butter ingredient list reads like a parents dream; Peanuts. The end.
Maggie Beer was there handing out free ice-cream.
Well actually, it was just a cardboard cut-out of Maggie but Maggie Beer is such perfection that even the cardboard version seemed nice.
The ice cream was real. Burnt fig, Chocolate and Salted Caramel and Affogato. Yum!
Miss Molly’s Cakes also made me a fantastic coffee, in style. Check out her cute cupcake filled caravan.
There was also live music, workshops, Chef’s Table classes, and heaps of great food to try.
I loved the BBQ pork, pickled cabbage and tomato roll from Gladioli Restaurant in Inverleigh.
I also had the pleasure of attending some of the live cooking sessions at the Electrolux Taste theatre, where I was lucky enough to meet Chef Matt Dempsey from Gladioli.
More on that soon.
Did you manage to attend Taste of Melbourne this weekend? If so, what was your favourite moment?
