7.22am, Saturday 15th July, the coin in the slot internet kiosk, Perth Covention Centre, Western Australia
Morning folks, it’s just me and Powderfinger (singing ‘My Happiness’) in the place right now. Yesterday the Convention Centre was completely heaving with the Good Food & Wine Show. We were flat out with the Oxford Landing boathouse – I’ll get some photos today – using the snapping new 2011 vintages of Oxford Landing Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio, and the 2010 reds Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Shiraz. These wines were all paired up with food from Marion Grasby and Poh Ling Yeow – those photos are on the agenda today also! – and it was an oasis of relaxed sit down dining with proper cutlery and stemware in there all day whilst the whirlwind of the whole event spun on around it.
I went on a ‘research run’ early and found the best snack option in the whole Good Food & Wine Show – the Margaret River Turkey Company’s ‘Turkey Kransky’ – 6 inches of solid turkey, spices and low fat cheese on a stick!
