Melbourne Food and Wine Festival

It’s with the deepest regret that we announce the postponement of our March 2020 program. The March festival has been the work of hundreds of people around Victoria and around the world to produce, but the rapid escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic has created an exceptional set of circumstances for our event. Today’s recommendations from the federal government restricting “non-essential gatherings” have forced the decision to postpone.

The postponement is regrettable but it’s the firm intention of MFWF to run the Melbourne program at a later date in 2020. Supporting the food and drink community of Victoria is our mission, and the safety and welfare of festival guests is our critical priority

The Magical world of honey 


Delve deep into the world of the honey bee, one of the most critical animals of our ecosystem, in this interactive and informative event.

Without bees, plants and crops would fail to be pollinated, threatening our entire food system. Yet the health and survival of the honey bee is an ongoing concern around the world.

Find out more about how honey is created and harvested, what different varieties of honey mean, and more as Left Bank Melbourne and Liam Spurrell of Spurrell Foraging pay tribute to the tiny but mighty bee. Liam, a former chef with time at Vue de Monde, will work with the Left Bank Melbourne kitchen to showcase honey in all its forms in a creative three-course menu. Each course will be paired with a Victorian gin cocktail infused with honey.

In the atrium, you can explore abandoned beehives, honeycomb and a range of varieties of honey, before trying a honey-infused cocktail in the pop-up bar or some cheese infused with herbs selected by Spurrell Foraging.
