It’s Melbourne Good Food Month this June, and if the likes of Mister Bianco and what they’re doing for it isn’t your flavour, then perhaps the likes of Tipo 00 will do the trick.

Presented by Citi, the festival returns with favourites like Let’s Do Lunch, presented by Peter Lehmann Wines of the Barossa, and Friends of Good Food Month now added to the exciting event programme. This year, Melbourne Good Food Month features heaps of foodiful events, showcasing the very best of Australia’s restaurant industry over 30 delectable days.

We spoke with Andrea Papadakis of Tipo 00 of Little Bourke Street in Melbourne, who this year is serving-up some quality activity for the month-long celebration.

As for why Melbourne has something special to offer this Melbourne Good Food Month Andreas agrees Melbourne is where it’s at, saying, “Melbourne is home to a host of cultures and ethnicities, the product of waves and waves of immigration, especially in the post-war period. These communities have all made their own mark on Melbourne’s cultural and culinary landscape, which, combined with the unique layout of our city, has made for a wonderful mix of food offerings.”

And Melburnians agree. With a penchant for pasta, their menu of a very generous variety of it – “done well, with love,” Andreas assures – means Tipo 00 is where it’s at this year.

“Melbourne Good Food Month allows restaurants like ours to reach a broader audience, and to introduce even our regulars to some great little treats, specials and surprises which we may not be able to showcase in our context” he says.
