The Melbourne Food and Wine Festival celebrates its 25th birthday this year, bringing a truly mouth-watering line-up to town. Running from March 31 – April 9, festival highlights include the World’s Longest Lunch – which this year boasts a 600-metre-long table on Lygon Street, the Mo Vida y Moritz Laneway Fiesta which will take place Spanish style in Hosier Lane, and The Night of Irreverent Pleasures which will push the boundaries of a standard dining experience. The festival also provides ample opportunity to pick up some skills with Master Classes from eight of the world’s top chefs, a lesson on beekeeping and the chance to race other cooks around Coburg to source ingredients for a spectacular communal lunch. The line-up also includes a plethora of parties and wine-centric events which are bound to please even the pickiest connoisseur. In short, this is one festival you really don’t want to miss.

“It’s pointless to engage in any debate about which city has the best food without mentioning Tokyo. You know why? Because of the Japanese cooks. They take and they polish and shine and they make [everything] better.” Wise words from David Chang in Lucky Peach. Check out a little story we wrote about @zaiyuhasegawa (link in our bio).
