Festival fun for little foodies

Our guest blogger Alice Zaslavsky is the host of Channel Go!'s 'Kitchen Whiz', a kids cookbook author, and is passionate about teaching kids about food. Alice shares her tips on the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival:

“Ever wanted to hit up the CBD, but couldn't figure out what to do with the kids? Bring them along!

“As part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, Queensbridge Square in Southbank will be transformed into a family-friendly haven, complete with newbie newsroom antics and cooking classes that don't involve the ubiquitous decorating of sugary goods (and the inevitable tanty that follows... awesome!).

“The space will also offer pedi-bike rides, tai-chi classes and a generally-pleasant outdoor sanctuary, making this "little corner" of Melbourne the perfect place to introduce fledgling foodies to the festival, learn some new tips and tricks, or simply rest your weary feet after a serious nosh,” wrote Alice.
