MEMBERS of Murray Human Services’ (MHS) Creative Kitchens crew dropped into Junction Moama on Tuesday for a tastebud-tingling tour.
After taking a sneak peek at the kitchens and the cellar, the group settled in for a mouthwatering meal at the restaurant.
The tour was a prelude to Junction’s Melbourne Food and Wine Festival event, Food for Thought, coming up on March 25.
A portion of ticket proceeds from the event will go towards MHS and its work with people living with a disability.
‘‘The theme of the festival this year is community,” organiser Chelsea Leslie said.
‘‘And what better way to celebrate community than sharing a meal and helping a local organisation like MHS?’’
The ‘‘feast like no other’’ will feature a delicious three-course menu designed by head chef Dave Palmer.
How does kingfish ceviche with lime dressing and avocado puree sound?
Or a chocolate marquise with churro crumb, salted caramel gel and hazelnut sesame tuile?
Hungry yet? (Or just curious what a ‘‘tuile’’ is?)
And while you’re enjoying delectable local produce and regional beverages, you can also feast your mind on the work of MHS.
The team from MHS’ Creative Kitchens – which aims to provide skills for future employment – will play a key role in this event coming together.
Members will prepare components of the meal, all while learning new cooking tips from the talented Junction team.
Food For Thought will be held at Junction Moama on Sunday, March 25, from 12.30pm to 4pm.
The price is $163 per person, with food and beverages included.
