A festival of any kind doesn’t have to end on the last day. Keeping the festival going was what organisers at Melbourne
Food & Wine Festival had in mind when they invited some of the biggest names in fine food and wine to its talk-series, ‘Theatre of Ideas’. Guests included New York Times food editor Sam Sifton, well known Montreal Chef Joe Beef, and restaurateur Alla-Wolf Tasker of Lake House, Daylesford. Such great names and such great topics of discussion, all under the one roof! A shame for those who couldn’t come to listen, but what an opportunity to repurpose into a podcast
. SoundCartel was asked to turn six of the 12 talks into a podcast series. Extending the life of the festival and helping build awareness outside the confines of the event itself.
