March is one crazy time in Melbourne with two festivals on – one fashion and the other celebrating food glorious food. You may have seen all my reporting on the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, but I made sure not to miss out on the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival which ran from March 2 – 22. The Great Cheese Platter was held at the Queen Victoria Markets last Thursday night and I went along, took some snaps and enjoyed some beautiful cheese and excellent wine. It was a very informative evening with guest speakers charming us with the finer details of the cheese and wine industry. It was the first time the Markets have held the event during the festival and with it being a sell out, they should certainly lock it in for next year. Let’s take a look at the night.
