MFWF – High Country’s World’s Longest Lunch

“As part of the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival 2014, I was invited up to North East Victoria along with Thanh to enjoy #RegionalWeekend. The Longest Lunch seemed to be happening on The World's Hottest Day, but was an absolute blast!”

MFWF – High Country’s World’s Longest Lunch

As part of the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival 2014, I was invited up to North East Victoria along with Thanh to enjoy #RegionalWeekend. We were lucky enough to have a seat at the Regional World’s Longest Lunch on Friday, and didn’t mother nature turn on the perfect weather for it. 

On arrival we enjoyed the choice of Dal Zotto Prosecco Pucino NV and All Saints Estate Sparkling Shiraz NV. We then took our seats for the lovely long lunch, cooked by hatted chefs, with award winning produce; matched with wines by world-renowned winemakers. The theme of the lunch was ‘water’. Each chef told us the story behind their dish; weather it was cooked using the sous vide method, or dehydrated and the water was removed, it was a great lunch with some spectacular food. 

Roasted plums, ganache (Bright Chocolate 72% Equador), miso cream, dehydrated chocolate mousse (Bright Chocolate 72% Madagascan)

    I used to live in Wodonga and I have been to All Saints (as well as all the other wonderful wine makers in the northeast) many times. What a fantastic meal!
