It’s that time of the year again; time to get your crew together and cruise the stalls at The Good Food and Wine Show.
Held annually in all over the country, The Good Food and Wine Show is Australia’s largest consumer exhibition, and this year sees the Sydney event return to Darling Harbour.
There are a lot of stalls, and it can be hard to take it all in. So here are our top picks to help you make the most of the Sydney Good Food and Wine Show!
Riedel Glass Tasting
Riedel has been producing fine glassware since the 1850s, and Maximilian Riedel revolutionised the way we enjoy wine in 2004, with his series of varietal-specific wine glasses. Riedel’s theory is that by directing wine to different parts of the tongue, you can help to boost the desire flavours of each varietal. Does it work? Well, here’s your chance to see for yourself.
Ilve produces some of the world’s best ovens and cooktops, so for this year’s Good Food and Wine Show, they’ve also recruited some of Australia’s best chefs for a series of delectable cooking demonstrations.
This is your chance to witness some of Australia’s best chefs, like Kylie Kwong, Miguel Maestre and George Colombaris cooking up a storm. Trust us, even if you don’t get to sample their food, it’s worth the wait just to smell their cooking.
This event is perfect for anyone who loves good food and wine. So, naturally, you’ll find The Collective Wine Company there!
If you’re at the Sydney show, make sure you come and visit us at stall number M4. We’ll be sampling our scrumptious, award-winning ‘Impressionist’ range of wines from The Eden Valley.
We’ll also be giving you the chance to win an Inturi Deluxe Aerator Set, just by scanning your ticket, so make sure you come and visit us.
Aside from being “so hot right now,” Kimchi is said to be one of the world’s healthiest foods. More importantly, it also goes surprisingly well with a bold white wine, like a nice Riesling (the tannins in red can exacerbate the chilli in Kimchi, but if you don’t mind the heat – try it with a big red, such as a Sangiovese).
So book yourself into one of these sessions to sample Korea’s superfood, and learn how to make it for yourself.
Okay, we know it seems weird to get excited about a barbeque demonstration, but this is no ordinary barbeque demonstration. We love Heston Blumenthal’s creative cooking, and these live demonstrations will be conducted by some of his restaurant group’s best chefs. All of the dishes are amazing, but our tip is to get there before 1:30 to try and sample some of the Suckling Pig with Heston’s BBQ sauce.
