About Me
I'm a Melbourne boy, hailing from St Kilda with one ex, one current wife and four kids. Love the outdoors and making new discoveries. I cook a lot at home (cheers from wife) and do some preserving, mostly jams, pickles and fruit liqueurs. This is the diary of a cooking journey.

The Good Food Show

The Good Food Show is here again, with what seems to be a more serious foodie slant this time around. As a veteran of all previous exhibitions, it's an encouraging move in the right direction.

Gordon Ramsey is a return visitor as the headline attraction; with all his recent press one would hope that this time around it's all about the food rather than any titillating extra-curricular activities.

What has really caught my eye though is all the other talent lined up for the celebrity theatre. First up are those two boys of the moment, Gary Mehigan & George Calombaris, fresh from MasterChef, no doubt revealing a few insider secrets, as well as two more wonderful television personalities and great chefs in their own right, Matt Moran and Tobie Puttock.

Wine buffs haven't missed out either, Matt Skinner and Jane Faulkner are presenting amongst others, but if you want my real tip, then the Burgundy masterclass presented by Nick Stock and a friend of this blog, Phillip Rich from the Prince Wine Store, is a must see.

With a restaurant, bar, a whole host of exhibitors, there is something for everyone. Go and see the USA Foods stand for amazing American products including a great range of chillies and sauces. Don't buy their flavoured popcorn, you'll be addicted for life!

To whet your appetites I have passes for two lucky people to enter the show and attend a cheese masterclass, on Saturday, 6th June at 10.00am, presented by Naomi Crisante, a food educator, television presenter and food writer. That's worth $57.50

All you have to do is to leave a comment saying why you'd like to go, or mention what you liked about other Good Food Shows. Winners will be drawn this coming Sunday night.

Good luck.

The Good Food Show, Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, Queen's Birthday weekend, Friday 5th June, 12pm - 9pm, Saturday 6th June, 9am - 6pm, Sunday 7th June, 9am - 6pm, Monday 8th June , 9am - 5pm

Please note: because there isn't much time, just leave your name in comments and I will draw two winners Monday night instead of Sunday.

Your reverse psy would work on me: I'm sure I'd be buying the flavored popcorn if only I could be there!

Hi Neil,

I would really love to go to the Good Food Show as I have not been in the previous years and attend the cheese masterclass :)

Please add me to the draw, Neil!

I've not been to a Good Food Show before but am certainly curious. I've only just begun to appreciate some of the more pungent cheese varieties in the past year or two and would love to learn more at a masterclass.

Add my name pretty pls? I have not been in Melbourne to attend the Good Food show before and as home cheese makers and absolute cheese lovers, my partner and I would dearly love to attend the cheese workshop!
