Good Food Guide Awards 2013

Sixty-six reviewers, 1100-plus meals, hundreds of journeys – the new edition of The Age Good Food Guide reveals more than 600 of the state’s best eating ……

A sneak peak behind the scenes at The Age Good Food Guide Awards, a glorious night in the Grand Hall at the National Gallery – the states finest in providing foodie (and winey!) heaven are gathered to hear the results! Their fate hangs in the balance of whether they will feature! One hat, no hat – what does it all mean? For some it might mean a restaurant that is booked out for the rest of the year… but if you are that good you don’t need this guide to guarantee that! Perhaps its the recognition from those in the room that you are doing it right!

The night saw some of those most respected in the industry honoured and a standing ovation for Ella Wolf-Tasker for the legend award was obviously heartily agreed by everyone in the room. There were a well known few faces missing in the room and a few hushed murmurs at some of the results bit it was wonderful to spend a night with Jacques, Frank, Will, Shannon and Ella!!
