The wine served with lunch is from award winning Montalto Estate, a beautiful winery nestled in Mornington Peninsula, just 90 minutes south of Melbourne. The region is renowned for its unique maritime climate that produces exceptional cool climate wines, most notably Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Their focus is to create wines of exemplary quality and character that reflect the region and the vintage.

The Montalto Estate Chardonnay 2018 (gold medal award & 95 points) is multi layered & crafted from the best parcels of fruit from the Montalto family vineyards across the Peninsula.

The Montalto Pennon Hill Pinot Noir 2018 (gold medal award) showcases all the qualities that the Mornington Peninsula is best known for – perfume, purity, varietal expression and brightness.

Dive into the rich melting pot of Melbourne’s food culture with Melbourne Foodie Trails










Living in Victoria during Covid restrictions, our kitchen has become a creative space as well as the room at home where we meet as a family after hours apart with online schooling, walking the dog and zoom meetings. I start cooking just after lunch and then I am in and out of the kitchen for the rest of the afternoon, flicking through cook books and preparing some elements of dinner before we meet at the table at 6pm.

Each day I am reminded of how food brings people together and grateful that I live in the great city of Melbourne that rivals any city with its vibrant and diverse food scene with so many culinary experiences to connect with the many different cultures

I’d love to take a sneak peek into a Greek family’s pantry in Oakleigh to be delighted at the incredible flavours that can derived with slow cooking from a few key, simple and seasonal fresh food ingredients  

I dream about tasting the many herbs and spices in different forms, blended together, used whole, chopped, grounded, roasted, sautéed and fried with an Indian family in Dandenong.

Or beam me into a bustling Vietnamese restaurant in Victoria Street (where my love for cooking began) with a Vietnamese Thick Noodle Soup called Banh Canh, A simple Vietnamese soup with thick noodles in a rich pork broth that can be made in large batches, not as popular as the Vietnamese soup Pho but its hearty flavour has become a winter favourite in our house for years.  

How lucky we are to be living in Melbourne, well known for its cultural diversity that brings people together in harmony with a thriving food scene that rivals any great city in the world. The broad ethnic mix has bought many benefits to this great city including a wide range of cuisines.
