Melbourne Food and Wine Legends announced

The 2015 Melbourne Food and Wine (MFW) Legends were announced yesterday with six of Victoria’s hard-working movers and shakers welcomed into the program by Lord Mayor Robert Doyle.

Held at the Crown Towers, the ‘hall of fame’ program pays tribute to leaders, ground breakers and visionaries of the state’s food and wine industry.

Pat Carmody, Craiglee Vineyard owner, was the only winemaker to be inducted. Carmody was joined by Anne O’Donovan, publisher and founder of The Age Good Food Guide, Miranda Sharp, founder of the Melbourne Farmers’ Markets as well as John and Steve Lau from The Supper Inn, and popular baker, John Downes. Fleur Studd, co-founder of Market Lane Coffee was also inducted into the ‘hall of fame’ and won the 2015 HOSTPLUS Trailblazer Award.

The new ‘Legends’ join the likes of Maggie Beer AM, James Halliday AM and Neil Perry AM in the MFW ‘hall of fame’.

Each year since 1993, MFW takes a moment to celebrate the past as much as the present by commemorating the Victorians chefs, producers, communicators, vignerons, and restaurateurs who have forever shaped our state’s great culinary culture.
