Hi everyone! You might know me as Macgyver Boyfriend on here. Eileen has hurt her arm so she's asked me to write this blog post on her behalf. I hope I don't scare you away forever and you at least come back when Eileen has returned.
Here at The Food Avenue, we aim to help you make the best food decisions. Of course, if I had a limitless wallet, I'd be going to every single Good Food Month event on the program!
Well, I've done the maths and I've worked out which Good Food Month dinners are the best value for money!
I'll explain my methodology. I had a close look at the program and circled all the ones that took my fancy. Then I calculated the cost per course for each event. I selected the top 3 based on the best value for money and the food offering. Here's what I came up with.
1. Seven course Sake Degustation at Iori Japanese Restaurant. Price per course: $16.43 incl sake.
There will be 7 courses at this dinner, which will include o toro (fatty tuna bell) from Tokyo Tsukiji Market. Each course includes a matching premium sake, produced by a sake master from Japan. Get your booking in quick for this one. The next (and last!) degustation is on 10 March.
2. Five course Ultimate Seafood Dinner at C Dine. Price per course: $22 incl wine, $17 w/o wine.
I love fresh Australian seafood. Just check out the amazing menu!!
3. Five course Central and South American inspired banquet at Elk and Pea. Price per course: $19 incl tequila tasters and cocktails.
The banquet will take you on a journey through Jalisco, Guanajuato, Michoacan, Nayarit and Tamaulipas. The tequila tasters sound like a great bonus!
There are of course other reasons why you might choose other events to participate in. You might want to meet a celebrity chef, or try food from a visiting interstate chef. But if those things aren't as important to you (and you're not allergic to seafood!), I think these are the best value for money events, based on price per course.
Will you be booking in for these dinners or will you be trying other events on the Good Food Month program? Let me know in the comments below. I would love to hear from you!
