We went on another field trip to the largest gathering of international food, drink and equipment for the retail, foodservice and hospitality industries. We registered online a couple weeks before to get in for free, and also it’s only for industry, therefore you would have to be in the industry before they’d let you in.. here’s pics from Fine Food Australia..
Also there are some pics from the foodie competitions they had, one of our chef’s won a couple of gold awards for his chocolate/sugar work (geisha piece).. congrats!
So this year, I decided to volunteer my time at some well known Melbourne Foodie events.. had heaps of fun, met loads of people and I am looking forward to more opportunities later this year.
1. March 2010, Melbourne Food & Wine Festival: Ticketing and Information at the Cellar Door event
2. June 2010, Good Food & Wine Show: Ushering at the Celebrity Theatre event
The last picture is all the goodies I managed to score from working there
3. August 2010, Taste of Melbourne: Back of House, assisting restaurant chefs (Pop Up restaurant: Izakaya Den)
The menu was Corn Fritters with Green Tea Salt, Spicy Tuna Tataki and White Sesame Mousse with Tapioca
The last picture is little cakes I bought from Sweet by Nature. They were absolutely fabulous!! (L->R: Tiramisu, Carrot Cake, Sticky date, Passionfruit cheesecake, Lemon Meringue and Choc Mousse)
