Despite 2022 being filled with unfortunate events, finally, there is some good news, as Melbourne's garlic bread festival returns this month.
Melbourne’s highly anticipated festival will hit the city on April 30, offering some delicious garlic bread amalgamations, including garlic bread cheesesteaks, garlic bread arancini balls and even garlic bread bloody mary's.
My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
The festival will also include garlic bread burgers from beloved burger franchise Mr Burger, garlic bread fish and chips from Chef Calamari and of course, the finest selection of garlic bread plates.
However, if scoffing down all that bread makes you slightly parched, not to worry, as the bar will be serving up minty fresh cocktails guaranteed to hit the spot!
Expect to see a series of garlicky stalls, including Garlic Town, Nuggies, Sparrows Philly Cheese, Porcupine Eatery, Wylee Garlic, Lard Ass Butter, with more to be announced closer to the date.
Many stalls will also be selling their garlic bread and exotic butter, just in case you want to create your own unique pairings at home.
The festival will kick off around midday which will be hosted by ‘Welcome To Thornbury’, with free entry, but you can also book a table for 6 - 30 people via their website.
Many Twitter users have also expressed their excitement for the festival in previous years, with one user writing: “Off to a garlic bread festival today and I am going to enjoy every single calorie consumed today.”
While another one wrote: “I’ve never been to a garlic bread festival but the first one I can get to post-lockdown, I’m going.”
And another commented: “Can’t even describe how excited I am to be going to a garlic bread festival tomorrow.”
While another wrote: “Am I still bitter that I lived in Melbourne for a total of 9 months and never realised it had a garlic bread festival? yes I absolutely f*****g am.”
If you’re struggling as Melbourne heads into the cooler months, what better way to kick back, than with some warm, toasty bread and fresh beverages that will make those carbs go down just right.
Make sure you book a table in advance as this festival will undoubtedly be pumping!
