Festival Food on the Run
FLEET-footed foodies are flocking to Coburg for an amazing race. Coburg Food Race, part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, will see teams of two fit in and out of shops, taste things to solve clues, and face challenges based on the multicultural suburb’s sorgasbord of cuisine. It’s all in the hunt for key ingredients which will be used in a shared three-course lunch at Peppertree Place at the end of the two-hour race. Coburg Food Race is on March 31, April 1, 7 and 8.
