The list goes on.

Head  Chef of Wilson & Market Ryan Spurrell will be demonstrating the winning dish from our media preview dinner, thanks to the willing taste testers amongst the group!  All the action will be MC’d by celebrated Chef, author and presenter – and Prahran Market Ambassador – Tobie Puttock.

If that wasn’t enough, this year we’ve announced the inclusion of our inaugural Grilled Cheese Invitational!

“We love our cheeses as though they were our children. We love every single one of them equally. We don’t have favourites but at this time of the year Gruyeres are so satisfying and filling. They’re the cheese that says to you ‘I will make you feel good’ when you come home on a cold day”, Chad, Pete’N’Rosies.

“I enjoy a lot of cheese, mainly Italian varieties and I love sheep’s cheese. My favourite Winter food is Pizzoccheri, which is buckwheat pasta with spinach and goes perfectly with Fontina cheese,” Terry, Prahran Market Hardware.
