This Thursday marks the beginning of the Taste of Melbourne event for 2011. If you haven’t heard about it, it’s a sensational event where some of the wonderful restaurants about town all converge on the Royal Exhibition Building over four days to tempt the public to step through their doors.
When I attended the event last year, I found that it was a great way to create a sort of DIY degustation – with about 17 different restaurants showcasing about 2 to 3 dishes each, it means that you can work through pre-dinner cocktails, a 5-7 course degustation (depending on how hungry you are) and go right through to after-dinner aperitifs.
But if you plan on drinking, then I would suggest that you take public transport
Tickets are $25 per person to enter and you’ll need to purchase “Crowns” to exchange for food, but if you’re looking for something to do later this week then this is something for you to consider. More detail about the exhibitors and events are available at the Taste of Melbourne website.
Oh, and I’ll be there during the midday session on Saturday, so ping me on Twitter @Kitchenwench if you want to say hello
