Treats at the Royal Melbourne Show.


DAGWOOD dogs? Sure they’ll be there, and more than 35,000 will be sold, for it would not be the Royal Melbourne Show with­out bat­tered sausos on sticks. But along with the fairy floss and buck­ets of dim­mies and chips, this year’s show will also put on a feast for, ahem, slightly more dis­cern­ing tastes.

“I can’t wait. It will be our first time be­ing part of such a great event,” says mas­ter patissier Pier­rick Boyer (above), who will be serv­ing his ac­claimed Le Petit Gateau treats within the Win­ning Tastes Pav­il­ion. Housed in­side the Masterchef set, this will no doubt be the cen­tre of all the best things to eat.

Boyer’s brownie and pas­sion­fruit gateau – a pra­line, mousse and pas­sion­fruit cus­tard cake – will be avail­able at the Dessert Bar for the last three days of the show, where Bi­belot and Luxbite will have served up their sweet treats ear­lier.

Three of Melbourne’s favourite restau­rants will pop-up and feed the hordes. Jerry Mai will serve bowls of her Pho Nom pho (Septem­ber 17-20), the Bomba crew will bring their Span­ish tapas (Septem­ber 21-24) while the Huxtaburger boys’ lob­ster roll spin-off, Mr Claws, will also be in the house (Septem­ber 25-27). Thirsty? The brew bar will have top lo­cal craft beers on tap. “It’s malt and hops – beer is the ul­ti­mate agri­cul­tural prod­uct, which ties back to what the show is all about,” says Jayne Lewis of Two Birds. The brew­ery will be serv­ing their beers, as will Hawk­ers and 3 Ravens, Kaiju! and Tem­ple among oth­ers.

Boyer will also take to the master­class stage, where he’ll demon­strate how to pre­pare breath­tak­ing choco­late desserts he prom­ises will im­press at home. Adrian Li (Saigon Sally), Ian Cur­ley (The Euro­pean) and Adam D’sylva (Tonka/coda) are a few more bold­face names who’ll share their kitchen se­crets.
