I’m stating the obvious here, but Melbourne is big on food. (Cue all the “Duhs!” across town). But Melbourne foodies will be delighted to hear about the Autumn Flavour Exchange coming up in March at Fed Square with all sorts of foods, wines and beers ready at their taste buds’ disposal.
There will be food on offer from the likes of Mantra Lounge in Carlton, Melbourne’s first completely vegan restaurant. It’s only been open for 25 weeks, but has already served over 10,000 in that time. The Killer Sprocket Brewing Company have their own pale ales Bandit and Hey Juniper. Even food trucks are getting in on the action with Mamma Van dishing out the likes of slow cooked lamb, pulled pork, braised beef brisket and popcorn chicken. Cooper’s Pies, naturally, has some good ol’ Aussies pies on offer, while Peninsula Fudge has plenty of banoffee, cherry, apricot and pistachio, and honey almond soft nougat fudges to melt in your mouth.
All those foods has gotten you drooling, hasn’t it? Well, you should give them a treat or two at the Autumn Flavour Exchange, and they will love you for it (though your stomach might not eating all this great stuff).
