This Week In Food: It’s 12 o’clock somewhere…
THIS WEEK IN FOOD
One of our faves, Matt McConnell from Bar Lourinha, is planning some cross-cultural collaborations this year, and they’re kicking off with a trip across the Mediterranean to explore all things Hellenic with Matt Germanchis from Anglesea’s Captain Moonlite.
The two Matts are planning a family-style feast – think Sardine & mint cigar, cuttlefish & vine leaf, and twice-cooked octopus. Ninety-five bucks will get you plenty of food, Greek wine, ouzo, plate smashing and dancing.
WAY OUT IN WARRANDYTE
Had a quick note to tell me about a new venue that has opened in Warrandyte called “It’s 12 O’clock Somewhere”…something between a local/bar/diner that promises great handcrafted beer, wines on tap, by the glass or bottle, modern share plates, gourmet pizza, and dishes fresh from the New Orleans smoker. Surely worth a look!
IDE GO IF I WERE YOU
I still remembering Peter Gunn’s IDES when it was an innovative, monthly, Monday night pop up in East Melbourne…and now, the ex-Attica chef is celebrating his second birthday in their permanent Smith Street home. It’s still innovative and impressive, and they’ve just had a dining room makeover which gives you an excuse to get back if you’ve been, or a reason to check it out in the first place!
Are you a smallgoods supremo? Well prove it…
The Hamster of Lara home-made Artisan Smallgoods Competition is coming up at the Lara Food and Wine Festival, entries close 22nd of March.
So if you make your own naturally cured and produced smallgoods, cheeses or preserves, then you’ve got to be in it to win it!
