The city meets the country at this year's Regional World's Longest Lunch
06 February 2018
Two regions will collide in a celebration of food and home-grown produce as part of this year's Melbourne Food and Wine Festival.
The City of Greater Dandenong and Murrindindi Shire will co-host the Regional World's Longest Lunch on Friday 16 March, 12pm to 4pm.
Little River Winery in Taggerty, Acheron-based artist and cook Marian Rennie and the City of Greater Dandenong will join together to promote businesses and amazing produce from their communities.
The event will be held at Marian Rennie's Gallery – located on one of the oldest farming properties in Murrindindi Shire.
Greater Dandenong Mayor Councillor Youhorn Chea said the event was a fantastic opportunity to showcase what both regions had to offer.
He said it also offered a unique dining experience with more than 100 guests seated at one continuous table.
“Both regions are establishing themselves as thriving food heartlands,” he said.
“This is an event that serious foodies and wine lovers will delight in.”
Guests will be treated to a five-course culinary feast and will also receive a show bag filled with local goodies to enjoy at home.
A sneak peak of what will be on offer at the Regional World Longest Lunch will be part of a pop-up in Harmony Square, Dandenong on Friday 16 February from 11.30am to 2.30pm.
Suppliers from Dandenong and Murrindindi will be showcasing their products in the lead up to the main event.
