Melb Food and Wine Festival, she hosts amazing dinners in her studio with amazing chef’s – Monday night was chef Aaron Turner from Loam on the Bellarine Peninsula. And his very passionate about what they do, wife, was front of house. The food was AMAZING! With a lean towards suppliers that share the same level of passion about food as they do, the 5 course dinner was simply one of the best experiences ever! Think produce like locally grown (and fresh, not dried!) shitake mushrooms – delicious!
The wine, provided by Ben Haines was also fantastic, I don’t usually drink white, but his were exceptional. He’s rather new to the scene, launching his brand just 6 months ago, but there’s no lack of experience there. he’s worked in all major regions with most famous winemakers.It was also a bit of a spesh dinner as the napkins that Dawn Tan designed and we printed up looked so beautiful on the table. So exciting to see them in the final place on the table.
After dinner, we were all treated to a live pottery demo from Shelley. She whipped up a cup and bowl in no time. A very interesting process, would love to do a class at some point actually!
