Perth Good Food & Wine Expo

Everyone looks at me a bit strangely when I say I’m excited for the Good Food & Wine Expo to hit Perth. I’m not sure why though; $30 and you get to taste a variety of food, wines and products that you may not be exposed to otherwise! If you’re super keen, you can also pay extra to do fancy tasting, cooking demonstrations or other fun things! We’ve been 3 years in a row #noregrets

Matt and I bought a Saturday 12-6 pm ticket, and showed up at about 1 pm. To say it was “bustling” is an understatement. Some of the wine tastings were 5 people deep, 10 people wide! The stall holders were very patient and seemed to be having a good time spruiking their product, so the vibe was fun.

After one or two (or three) tastings Matt and I decided lunch was in order. I saw Andy’s Bratwurst on the way in; Andy is a regular at music festivals, food fairs and Perth’s Oktoberfest, and I knew that was what I wanted. Matt and I went halves in a curry bratwurst. So freaking delicious.

We spent a lot of time trawling the wine stalls. At first we were keen for ALL the wine tasting. Generally 3 whites and 3 reds at every stall… but after a couple of hours it was enough just to keep to the reds, and make more frequent stops at the food stalls, haha.

I was a little tipsy at this point, and conscious that my teeth were a bit wine stained…

At the end of the day we brought home a very sizable loot. WA artisan brie and blue cheese, Harvey triple cream brie, some delicious chutney’s and sauces, honey, pickled vegetables, truffles…. we spoiled ourselves.

We also ordered a few boxes of wine, of course.

Check out the Food & Wine Expo next year. You don’t need the expensive tickets to have a good time. I’ll see you there 😉
