Eat Drink Perth, our fair city's fledgling food festival, is on for the entire month of March. Sadly, I only found out about it when I returned from the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival. Hopefully, as the years go by, there'll be more money for greater publicity. These things take time, I guess. Nevertheless, there are some fantastic events like Project Amuse, a special dinner at top Perth eatery Restaurant Amuse; and a coffee competition amongst Perth's coffee joints like Howard Street Coffee (Ristretto's baby sibling), Tartine, Mini Espresso and Tiger Tiger, where you get to vote for your favourite coffee place and even go into the draw to win a year's supply of free coffees.
One of the highlights has to be the Friday night food bazaar at Forrest Chase, sporting such exotic delights as Transylvanian cuisine, Mexican, Indian and even satay! If you have a spare hour, do yourself a favour and pop down there this Friday night.
