Carlton and Lygon Street have one of the strongest culinary histories in all of Melbourne. From earliest settlement times it has been a place where people from around the world have come to gather and eat together.

Today the heart of Italian food beats strongly in Carlton. C Cameron Smith will lead guests along this famous foodie strip to meet the storekeepers, taste their specialties and learn a little about Lygon Streets foodie history, stories and architecture.

Tastings and visits will include D.O.C for Italian specialty food, Gewürzhaus for awesome spice blends, Brunetti for decadent Italian cakes and sourdough breads at Baker D. Chirico.

There is also time to learn about great coffee, freshly made mozzarella and true free-range smallgoods. We will finish the tour with gelati (of course). A wonderful way to see the old and new in one of Melbourne’s most famous ‘eat streets’.
