A Moveable Feast: This Week In Food – Sep 2
QUEEN MARGARET – To celebrate the milestone that is 50 years since the first vines were planted, Margaret River Wine is hosting two indulgent events in Melbourne – a five-course dinner at Vue de Monde on Monday night, and a wine tasting with over 50 MR wines at the NGV Mural Hall on Tuesday evening.

YOU’D BE DIM TO MISS IT – Alright, this one’s basically for me. Food truck venue Welcome to Thornbury is holding a Dimmie & Dumpling Festival on Saturday 16 September from 12pm until 10.30pm. It does what it says on the tin: entry is free, and you’ll be able to buy a world’s worth of dumplings – think piergogis, Nepalese momos, and Chinese fried Chicken dim sum. http://welcometothornbury.com/
MAHA GOES MALTESE – The unofficial ambassador for Malta, Shane Delia, will be celebrating that nation’s Independence Day with a four course lunch on September 23 and 24 at Maha. Shane says he’s created a special menu that celebrates the big day by “unshackling its cuisine and representing it in a vibrant new light” – let me just say Village bread with preserved fig butter and crispy rabbit. The end. Four courses with matching beverages will set you back $120. More info: https://maharestaurant.com.au/
SMOKIN’ GOOD – They’re coming thick and fast from Pep Events, fabulous food events run by Hilary McNevin. The next one is Texakaya – a fun sounding collaboration by Burn City Smokers and Milking Yard Farm. Spend a Sunday lunch in a Footscray warehouse to see the Burn City boys grill Milking Yard Farm’s free-roaming chickens and it’ll be every last bit of the bird, cooked yakitori-style – think skewers of chicken hearts with ginger, sesame and spring onion; smoked thighs with sake, soy sauce and mirin and crispy, salty chicken skins. That’ll happen next Sunday 10th September from 1pm – 4pm. Tickets at https://www.eventbrite.com.au/
