Oh my!

It’s giveaway frenzy this week and today’s giveaway is an experience that maybe money can’t buy…because tickets to the IGA World’s Longest Lunch are almost sold out!

The Melbourne Food and Wine Festival is opening at midday Friday 2 March with its showcase event, a three-course lunch designed by hatted regional chefs George Biron (Sunnybrae), Patrizia Simone (Simone’s) and Annie Smithers (Annie Smithers’ Bistrot) with matched wines from Yering Station.

The 500m long table will be set by the banks of the Yarra under the trees of Alexandra ParkΒ  – the perfect location for a long, leisurely lunch.

I attended the longest lunch a few years ago with some friends and it’s a memorable experience (let’s just say that I wore a silly hat, ate and drank under the sunshine and missed my train after falling into a tipsy snooze on the way home). You’re in for a treat!

Giveaway! Thanks to Bank of Melbourne, the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival presenting partner, I have one double pass to the IGA World’s Longest Lunch to give away. To win the tickets, all you have to do is leave a comment and one lucky person will be drawn randomly on Monday 27 February as the winner. Good luck!

PS Visit the Bank of Melbourne website, share your Melbourne food tips and you could also win a year’s worth of dining for two for 12 months, valued at over $10,000.
