Ahoy me’ Hearties! Melbourne Food & Wine Festival

Ahoy me’ Hearties! Melbourne Food & Wine Festival

Saturday, Feb 16 2019

As you know, we love to cook (and eat) glorious food at Heart of Hall and our aspiration is to share that love with Melbourne! This has naturally led us to join Melbourne’s gastronomic playground, the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, which runs from the 8th to 24 March.

The MFWF started in 1993 with a modest program of 12 events dreamt up by Peter Clemenger AM AO.  Today it’s an annual state-wide celebration with over 250 events across Victoria, of which Heart of Hall is one!

As part of the MFWF, there are 25 delicious and exquisite gourmet events in Melbourne’s west. Heart of Hall proudly hosted the launch of Eat Drink Westside on Thursday 7th of February.  It was a fabulous event bringing 50+ members of the local foodie community together.

Heart of Hall Eat Drink Westside

Here we have Sammi from Mumma Knows West along with Triple R's Eat It host Cam Smith getting expert tips from the team at Xuan Banh Cuon (XBC) on how to recreate their delicious Northern Vietnamese dish of banh cuon.

We invite you to join the crew and join us on a sea inspired cooking class.  Learn to create outstanding seafood tapas as well as ‘nautical’ cocktails (think rum & burnt sugar).  For this event we have teamed up with our seafaring friends from Williamstown, Gem Pier Seafoods to bring you an exciting night out in Newport.

The Menu

Spicy IPA fish taco bites with rum soaked pineapple

Smokey Bloody Mary prawn cocktail

Gin cured ocean trout on blinis with watercress and dill sauce

Latkes with caviar and champagne creme fraiche

Coconut and rum ceviche shooters

Boozy buttered seared scallops

Fried calamari with smokey bourbon aioli

This year will be the first time the team at Heart of Hall get to participate in the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, with owners Stacey Krbaleski and Nicole Walker eagerly looking forward to being part of 2019 lineup: “We just missed out on applying for last year’s festival with our doors opening late January; there just wasn’t time to submit a concept. But now with a year of classes under our belt and a strong community following, we are so excited to contribute to this year’s program.”
