This Week in Food: Celebrating spring with cherry blossoms + Rutherglen in the city

THIS WEEK IN FOOD

WINE NOT? Love Rutherglen wines, but struggle to get to the country? Well, the country can come to you. “Rutherglen in the City” returns to Melbourne on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 September at The Atrium in Fed Square. There’ll be a pop-up wine and cocktail bar, 17 winery cellar doors, plus food trucks on site. Just $5 will get you all your tastings and cellar door exclusives, plus you can buy your favourite wines to take home. More info: www.winemakers.com.au

ONLY YOURS I love hearing about openings in my home town, so was very excited to hear about Only Mine chocolaterie opening in the Dandenong Ranges village of Olinda. Handmade chocolates are made on site, plus some seriously good sounding hot drinks. Check it out – www.onlymine.com.au

HELLO, BLOSSOM Supernormal is celebrating cherry blossom season with a Japanese Hanami (blossom viewing), a seriously cool installation at the Flinders Lane eatery, and a specially-developed Spring menu for the occasion. From 6 – 13 September, guests can dine under fresh blossoms on unique dishes like seasonal kimchi of wild stinging nettle, kohlrabi and cucumber; or beef tataki with white miso and radish. A soft-serve machine will make a triumphant return to pump out cherry blossom & earl grey soft serve, topped with raspberry caramel. supernormal.net.au

QUE RICO After a successful collaboration earlier in the year, Pastuso’s Alejandro Saravia and Atlas Dining’s Charlie Carrington are re-uniting for a special “Passion for the Pacific dinner” at Pastuso on Tuesday 11 September. It’s all about fresh and sustainable seafood with Peruvian flair – so expect ceviche with King George Whiting, octopus, and Lakes Entrance sardines; as well as Hiramasa kingfish and Yamuk abalone to boot.
