Italians do it better


Everything that’s good about eating and drinking in Italy will come together under one roof. Just as the appeal of Italian food runs from street-style pizza-fun for the whole family to fresh-pasta finery for the connoisseur, the festival has food and drink, entertainment and information to suit everyone from spaghetti-loving kids to the most engaged Italian-speaking wine lover. And snacks. Lots and lots of snacks.

Melbourne’s top Italian cooks are turning out in force to make it a day to remember.

There’ll be the chance to shop for salumi, cheese, pasta, coffee, olive oil, gelato and pastries at our Gourmet Traveller Food Market. The teams from Melbourne’s top Italian restaurants will be cooking up a storm, and there’ll be cooking demonstrations and food talks with the chefs.

Watch live food demonstrations, including fresh mozzarella and pasta making, and round out the day relaxing in the wine garden listening to the best in Italian jazz played live.
