Pro­duce awards

All the ac­tion from the big night.

POS­I­TIVE EN­ERGY FLOODED the room as judges, ex­perts, crit­ics, guests and, of course, in­cred­i­ble pro­duc­ers made their way up the stair­case into the beau­ti­fully decked-out QT Mel­bourne. It was a chilly Au­gust evening, but warmth re­ver­ber­ated through the space as guests ar­rived to the 2017 de­li­cious. Pro­duce Awards in part­ner­ship with Miele – and that wasn’t just down to the espresso mar­ti­nis by Miele, or the flow­ing cham­pagne from spon­sor Qan­tas epiQure. Sta­tions for each of the Pro­duce Awards’ pil­lars – From the Earth, Dairy, Sea and Pad­dock – bulged with an in­cred­i­ble ar­ray of canapes cre­ated by QT Mel­bourne chef Stu­art Munro. Rev­ellers de­lighted in dis­plays such as seafood frozen into ice, a pro­duce ta­ble burst­ing with fresh vegeta­bles, a whole suck­ling pig at the pass, and what can only be de­scribed as a cheese moun­tain. As Editor-in-Chief Ker­rie McCal­lum and Se­nior Editor Matt Pre­ston took to the stage to an­nounce the awards, the ex­cite­ment was pal­pa­ble. Tro­phy win­ners re­ceived wild ap­plause, and the party con­tin­ued into the night. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all the win­ners of this year’s awards!
