The Vincast Episode 117 – Former guests at the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival 2017

I was honoured to be invited as a guest to the Makers & Muses event as part of the 2017 Melbourne Food & Wine Festival – which celebrated it’s 25th anniversary this year and coincided with the World’s Top 50 Restaurants Awards Ceremony – and who should be at this unique event but a number of former guests of the podcast. Taking advantage of the opportunity I chatted with them about the 2017 vintage, the MFWF and it’s events, and what the concept of Makers & Muses means to them. Please listen back to all of the previous episodes with these guests to hear more about their incredible journeys!

The Vincast Episode 055 – Morgan McGlone from Belle’s Hot Chicken & Bar Clarine

Morgan (Morgy) McGlone is never someone who’s done what’s expected, particularly as a chef. His love of authenticity is as famous as his penchant for speaking plainly. He loves accessibility in his food, and this also applies to his love of natural wine. He spoke to me on this episode of The Vincast of his journey through kitchens across the globe, and how he decided to introduce Melbourne to Nashville-style hot chicken with natural wine.

I’ll freely admit that I do have a habit of dining out and subsequently sharing pictures of food and wine on social media. In 2014 I’ve managed to cultivate a bit of a reputation, to the point where people ask if I even eat at home, let alone cook. I’m very fortunate that my job not only introduces me to some of the best restaurants in Melbourne and beyond, but also affords me the time and finances to head out and visit places. I’ve done pretty well in the last 12 months, so I thought I’d mention a few of the great experiences and dishes I had in 2014.

I love dishes that that are as audacious as this
