The Melbourne food scene is alive and well! No matter the world’s financial position, Melburnians it seems still want to enjoy good food. Fresh produce markets are buzzing with customers, great food stores are busy, bakery shelves are cleared of sourdough loaves by mid-afternoon and our chocolate makers are rolling chocolate truffles as fast as they can. Discerning food writers Allan Campion and Michele Curtis have once again scoured the city in their search for the best produce, products and service. From sourdough bread in Brighton, to gyoza in Camberwell and fresh mozzarella in Carlton, discover the wonderful butchers, bakeries, delis and farmers’ markets that help make Melbourne one of the world’s great food capitals. The Foodies’ Guide to Melbourne will place the city’s best kept food secrets at your fingertips. This year’s edition is fully updated, with lots of reviews of new stores that have opened over the last year. It will also be printed in full colour for the first time and features a new, modern design.
