Yes despite many warnings that I should not be going to Melbourne because of the Swine Flu - I grabbed the wings along with mask and hand wash and about 23.5 kl of luggage (always have problems )flew in to Melbourne about 10.00 p.m. on the Friday evening - where I was met by Sally. We travelled back to East Malvern and enjoyed a late evening meal - and set our alarms ready for our early start the next day.

With umbrellas to the ready we headed to the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival - and yes Gordon Ramsay!!!

First thing as we walked in the door I admired a very bright green trolley (old lady style) next thing I was the proud owner of one - thanks to Sally's generosity. It proved handy and we were soon able to fill it with all the goodies the day had to offer.

On a suggestion of the lady at the Cook Book Stall that we should purchase our book prior to the show and then at least we could rush for the signing - omg - we had no hope of people of getting the book signed - we had three attempts during the day. - Did manage get some photos of some of the lucky ones.
We were at the 12 oclock show along with thousands of other enthusiastic cooks - and can say nothing but the fact that we both enjoyed the show - Gordons quick wit ect - was no worse than we would witness here at the Uni Revue for instances - or any other comedian for that matter.

Later in the day when we enjoyed lunch were we able to choose between the Celebrity Chefs that took part in the Celebrity Kitchen - Gordon Ramsay, Tobie Puttock, Gary Mehigan and George Calombaris.

This was delightful Main course - one of Gary's.

It was as good as it looks !!!!!!!!!!!

Two very tiried feet trundled their way to the Car - and no sooner in the car I had nodded off to sleep waking as we drove into Burke Road. Fell on the couch and managed to awake an hour or so later in time to enjoy a very nice Pizza from Sally's favourite spot around the corner.

Next morning it was rise and shine as Sally had a Macedonian Wedding to attend and I was being picked up by Vickie and Gerald to spend the next night with them. I will continue my Melbourne travels in the next post as there is going to be a scheduled outage in a few mins on the blog and dont want to loose any work. Keep looking and hope to have the rest on by tomorrow.

Sally looking very glam in her wedding outfit.
Thank you Sally for a wonderful couple of days -
