Now to divulge who the food will be presented by and a teaser of the menu which we all know will be a delight; be prepared to have food choices that extend from Clyde Park Vineyard and Bistro Bannockburn (chilli prawn wood oven pizza) to The Love Mussel, Portarlington Mussels cooked 3 ways, to Growlers Torquay (grilled Barramundi with salad & chips), to Uber Mama in Anglesea (garlic & pepper calamari) to The Ginger Monkey Torquay’s very special Paella. This is merely a tempter, there is so much more on the menu of the day to delight your taste buds and satisfy your tummy.
