FOODIES IN TOWN TAKEOVER
SHANNON Martinez is mooving to the country.
The co-owner and chef at Fitzroy’s Smith and Daughters restaurant is heading to Jindivick in Gippsland as part of a contingent of city chefs and restaurateurs who will join local culinary stars to transform this tiny dairy farming town into a food lover’s haven in March.
As part of the 2019 Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, The Village Feast will take over the town for one day, with Martinez staffing the greengrocers, Alejandro Saravia (Pastuso) at the butcher’s, Victor Liong (Lee Ho Fook) running the Chinese restaurant and Matt Moran handling the pans in the local cafe.
Shannon Martinez will swap Fitzroy for country life in March.
