Festival friend Matthew Evans (The Gourmet Farmer) shares his top picks for events over the Regional Weekend (15 – 17 March).

“The Festival has always been a leader in its field, finding the topics, the talent, and the team to pull off an outstanding culinary experience for the entire community.”

Pork and Cider Sunday, Yarra Glen Smokehouse

Lunch with Rosa and Norman, Eastern Peake Vineyard

The Steer Ate the Beer, Bright Brewery

Land to Loaf, Philip Lobley Wines

Pomodori in all their glory, Simone’s Kitchen

Producer's Picnic on the River, James Park, Koondrook

Salchicha de Bonegilla, Bonegilla Migrant Experience

Game for Real Food and Wine, Kileen Stables

Fishing and Flavours, Pizzini Wines (sold out)

And for a taste of regional Victoria in the city:

Put Victoria on Your Table: Cellar Door & Artisan Market, Como House & Garden

You don't have to say much more than 'cider' and 'artisan cheese' to get me excited to come along. Add the words 'festive garden party' and I want to be there.

See Matthew at Theatre of Ideas presented by epicure, 10 March, $65
