Review: Good Food Month

Just when you were ready to hibernate through Melbourne’s winter months, Good Food Month is here to pull us out of our winter induced slumbers and fill our bellies with food from some of Australia and the world’s best chefs.

Under a wet and windy Melbourne winter night sky, Good Food Month was launched at the Palm Springs inspired, pop-up Melbourne Palms marque.

The evening provided an opportunity to sample just some of the delights that this heavenly foodie program has waiting for attendees this month. The evening’s food was created by the fabulously talented Andrew McConnell (Cutler & Co, Cumulus Inc and Supernormal) and Alla Wolf-Tasker (Lake House) and sent attendees into a frenzy, trying to wrap their lips around the evening’s stunning canapés.  Stand outs on the specially curated menu included cured kangaroo on flaxseed crisps and brioche buns with winter mushrooms from Wolf-Tasker and La Luna Holy Goat cheese topped semolina crackers and to die for duck waffle with foie gras and quince from McConnell.

The hum of conversation and excitement in the room was matched by the resident DJ and propelled along by a complementary drinks menu provided by and including Brand’s Laira wines.  Attendees were also able to rub shoulders with fellow foodies and some of the talented program guests including the evening’s stars McConnell and Wolf-Tasker plus international sensation Bo Bech.

With a myriad of events to tantalise your tastebuds and send your Instagram into foodie overload, Good Food Month is set to explode. Events are selling out quickly so don’t miss your opportunity to truly experience some of the world’s best food!
