Good Food and Wine Show

Good Food and Wine Show

This was my first visit to the Good Food and Wine Show so I went open-minded but full of good expectations. I took my mum with me and met up with our lovely neighbours. We wandered around the stalls, my mum keen to try a few wines (to make good use of the $10 wine glass you need to purchase before entering to taste wines) when we were offered free tickets to the Adriano Zumba theatre show. We gladly accepted and wondered what sweet creation he would make for us. 20 minutes later we all left the theatre early so disappointed that he had made no effort to engage with the audience at all during his cooking demonstration. In fact he looked bored and uninterested in being there, but then again it was the first show of the event and maybe he needed a while to ‘warm up’ to the audience.

As we had booked to see Manu Feildel at 12:15 and our neighbours Ainsley Harriot at 1:30 we thought we’d all have an early lunch together at the Oxford Landing Estate Restaurant. It had a simple menu created by Maggie Beer. Between us we ordered Baked Stuffed Quail with Quince Glaze and Rocket $18 and the Angus Beef and Red Wine Pie with Cavolo Nero and Quince $24. Considering the silence that fell across the table when we began eating I knew we were all enjoying our meals!

When I collected my tickets I was also given a voucher to collect some food magazines from the BBC Australian Good Food stand. I was quite looking forward to reading the magazines but couldn’t find the stand later in the day.  After asking staff where I could collect my magazines I was informed that the magazines didn’t get sent to Perth and I could exchange my ticket for a free Scanpan knife of which they had already run out of!

It was great fun visiting all the stands and trying some good food and wine. We even bought a few things to take home. I’m already looking forward to next years event!
