Masterchef in the King Valley
What a great thrill it was to host the filming of a MasterChef episode at Pizzini that featured some of the wonderful food and wine producers of Victoria’s High Country.
It was an amazing experience for us to watch such a professional crew working together to produce the episode.
We were fortunate enough to have all three judges, Gary Mehigan, George Calombaris and Matt Preston, visiting the region, and whilst here take time to meet locals and eat a few local restaurants. Matt Preston was incredibly generous with his time and even visited the Whitfield Primary School to chat with the kids about their Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program.
It was great to see two of the King Valley’s hero grape varieties featured – Prosecco and Sangiovese alongside produce grown or made by some of our region’s best meat, cheese, butter and honey producers.
The King Valley, Glenrowan, Milawa Gourmet, Rutherglen and Alpine Valleys certainly have a lot to be proud of when it comes to amazing local produce and welcoming personalities. Enjoying a meal cooked by the two teams and experiencing their hard work is an experience our family and friends will not forget in a long time!
