Yes, in 3 weeks time, it's gonna be the annual Perth Good Food and Wine Show. An event where all food & wine lovers appreciate and most look forward to.
If you haven't been to the show, check out my post on last year's show here to get a rough idea or just to see how much I'd enjoyed last year's show.
This year's show returning with a bang and it falls on the 15th-17th of July at Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. The session time are as following:
Friday (15/7) 10am - 5pm
Friday (15/7) 6pm - 9:30pm (After Dark Session)
Saturday (16/7) 10am - 6pm
Sunday (17/7) 10am - 5pm
Either you're a food lover, a wine lover or just there to spot a celebrity chef, there are many programs featured in this year's show for everyone, even if you're only in for a couple of drinks because it's winter now and Perth can get kinda boring.
With last year's great response, there are going be some tweaking and new highlights for more fun. Mondo's butchery classes and Barilla pasta class are 2 new exciting programs in this year's show for those who wants to learn new tricks in butchery or making sausages and getting your hands dirty in making pasta.
Along with these classes, returning to this year's show are Riedel Wine Tasting theatre and Bar and Cheese Discovery Classes. All these classes will cost extra on top of your general admission tickets.
If you're a Masterchef's fan, be sure to attend Chef Gary & George's master class. They shall be there to entertain you alongside with Chef Matt Moran, Chef Manu Feildel and Anna Gare will be demonstrating their culinary skills at Fisher & Paykel Celebrity Theatre and perhaps get a cook book signed at Chef's Book Signing Session.
Another new addition to this year's show is Oxford Landing Estate Restaurant, a tantalising menu designed by celebrity cooks Poh Ling Yeow (from Masterchef season 1) and Marion Grosby (from Masterchef season 2), with each entree and main dish accompanied by a glass of Oxford Landing Estate wine.
I had fun last year sampling through stalls after stalls of sweet and savory goodness and tasting of both WA and other Australian wines. At the same time, I also met a few celebrity chefs and learnt some exciting cooking tips. Additionally, my friends and I also bought some lovely new gourmet products, which we didn't normally get to buy at local supermarket. Although this is a food & wine show, there are also other lifestyle products such as health care products, kitchen appliances as part of the exhibitors.
