Invite The World To Dinner


I was honoured to be asked by Tourism Tasmania to cover one of the biggest events of the year last week. The gala event ‘Invite The World To Dinner’ event marked the culmination of Tourism Australia’s #RestaurantAustralia campaign, and showcased to the world the remarkable people, exceptional produce and inspiring places that make Australian food and wine so unique.

More than 80 international food and wine writers, critics, columnists, reviewers, celebrity chefs, TV personalities, including Heston Blumenthal, Alice Waters, A.A. Gill, Sanjeev Kapoor and Yifan Liu joined the likes of Australian foodies Maggie Beer, Matt Preston and Matt Moran to sample a truly unique and spectacular menu, which was created by Restaurant Australia Head Chefs Ben Shewry, Peter Gilmore and Neil Perry AM.

Was a great night. Here’s a selection of some of my favourite pictures.
