OLE Ole Ole — lovers of fine food are set to experience a distinctly Spanish flavour at this year’s Corangamite Foodies Feast.
Corangamite Shire’s director of sustainable development Ian Gibb said this year’s event would feature local produce served with a Spanish twist created by chef Leno Lattarulo of Simply Spanish restaurant in South Melbourne. He said people needed to purchase their tickets to avoid missing out.
“The menu, consisting of local produce, will see guests explore the tastes of Spain in a unique and cultural celebration,” he said.
Those attending will be treated to fiery flamenco dancing and Spanish-style music at the Five Star Function Centre in Camperdown.
The event, on Friday, March 15, is part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival and is now in its 21st year.
Mr Gibb said the Foodies Feast will feature locally produced cheese, meats, heirloom vegetables, wine and beer.
Mr Gibb said Corangamite’s producers — the 12 Apostles Food Artisans — have teamed with Mr Lattarulo to put on a fun evening dinner fiesta celebrating the produce from the region.
Other events for foodies during March will include the Simpson Progressive Farmers Market featuring a sit-down lunch using stallholder produce, and a local produce lunch at the Timboon Railway Shed Distillery.
