This year’s Melbourne Food and Wine Festival is presented by the Bank of Melbourne and will take place from 27th February to 15 March 2015. Celebrating its 23rd anniversary, the festival has expanded from a modest program of 12 events back in 1993 to a whopping 200 events which filled Melbourne’s labyrinthine network of restaurants, laneways, trendy basements and dizzying rooftops as well as spilling into spectacular regional Victoria!

In addition to exploring various dining venues, it’s also the time when the Festival brings together Australia and the worlds’ most talented chefs and winemakers for you to eat, drink, learn or simply just to celebrate over 17 days in March. The Melbourne Food and Wine Festival 2015 is gathering together some of the finest culinary minds in the world including Dan Barber (Blue Hill, New York), Matt Abergel (Yardbird Hong Kong) and Ruth Rogers (River Café, UK), to name a few.

I have compiled some of the Melbourne Food and Wine events which may interest you:-
