Oh my giddy aunt! It’s somehow March already, and the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival has rolled it’s big booty into town for the next two weeks. 


If you haven’t got yourself organised enough to book into your favourite events, don’t fret, The Festival Artisan Bakery & Bar is open everyday to the general public. Located at Queensbridge Square on Southbank (you know, where that big ugly red thing that looks like a Pizza Hut thing is?! Across the road from Crown Casino!).

Every morning a team of awesome local and international bakers, including baking rockstars like Éric Kayser (Maison Kayser, Paris) and Justin Gellatly (co-founder of London’s acclaimed Bread Ahead bakery) prepare a range of ever-changing baked treats that you eat there or take away and devour.

I was invited down to a Sparkling Sunday Brunch, to enjoy The Festival Bakery & Bar, including the sensational catering by Peter Rowland. The brunch also included goodies from guest baker of the day Justin Gellatly from Bread Ahead Bakery in London.

    What a lovely idea this is. I’m really hoping to get down there at some stage during the festival.
    The bloggers brunch looked gorgeous. Such lovely picture and the weather looks marvellous.
