Returning to Melbourne in June, Good Food Month is set to present it’s series of feature events at Canvas House. The South Melbourne warehouse space will kick of it’s roster of dinners and lunches with An Evening with Marco Pierre White on 5 June, which will see Phil Wood (Pt Leo Estate and Laura) take on Pierre White’s classics and create them as his own. Chefs Matt Stone (Oakridge, Yarra Valley) and Paul Iskov (Fervor, Perth) will showcase their hyper-local, sustainable approach to cooking at The New Vanguard.
Lunchtime events include the Young Chefs Lunch with Marco Pierre White, who will mentor Melbourne’s next gen of culinary superstars as they showcase their skills. On Sunday 9 June Pierre White will then team up with Andrew McConnell to present a next-level Sunday roast.
