Okay guys. Time to pack your cutlery and a few serviettes because the annual winter culinary food and wine festival season is in full swing – and it’s happening Australia-wide.

So, regardless of where you live or who you like to break (gluten-free) bread with, ’tis the season to share the joy of a great meal and good wine with loved ones.

Here’s some food and wine destinations that, given half the chance, I’ll be lining up for seconds at.

WA – Perth Food & Wine Show

Kicks off on July 10 and runs until the 12th. Taste cider and beer, watch celebrity chefs do their thing, there is plenty on show.
