Local Food Safaris

A brilliant whirl of a day that transports you across cuisines and across the city to discover heaven. We start the day with a coffee and crostoli at Guy Grossi’s Cellar Bar, then visit the ultimate Spanish Portuguese emporium with loads of tastes of jamon, manchego cheese, Colombian arepas and much more; visit an artisan Polish smokehouse and taste their delicious sausages and ham before exploring some of the Afghan world, then into a wonderful English butcher with all sorts of delicious specialties; learn the secrets of putting together a Middle Eastern mezza spread before relaxing at an award winning Lebanese restaurant for lunch. The final visit is to taste luscious artisan nougat. Includes coach transport, coffee, tastings and lunch.

Thank you so much for a wonderful day on Saturday. We all had a wonderful day touring around Melbourne in the comfortable coach and visiting all those lovely people and places. The food was amazing and little wonder with such passionate people preparing it. We have lived in Melbourne for nearly 20years now and had not visited any of the places we went to. We certainly will be going back to them though. Many of our family & friends are keen to join us too. It really was great to hear everyone’s stories as it brings the food to life.
Again, many thanks for your informative and fun way in which you led us around. It was a pleasure to meet you and the others on the safari - RC
Dear Suzy, ……. We had a great day on Saturday, the hospitality and passion at all the places we visited was so infectious. We ate till we dropped and we struggled home with our purchases like children who had been to the Melbourne show. Definitely a must do experience. Paula was a warm and knowledgeable host and we will be back for another trip. Maria A.
