  2. Fiona says:

    Oh oh oh well done, I hope I get a place!!!

  3. Looks fantastic! Hoping to get a place. Only in Australia for a year + blogging 7 months… would be a great opportunity to meet other food lovers and learn a thing or two.

    Great work so far, looking forward to more details.

  4. Cindy says:

    Exciting stuff! Thanks to the organisers for their hard work thus far.

    I notice that the lunch and dinner arrangements look pretty meat-focused. Are there plans for vegetarian and vegan options?

  5. Brilliant work guys, I know how challenging it can be to organise an event on volunteer time. The program looks fantastic. Looking forward to the updates and hopefully being able to get a seat!
