#VISITBALLARAT

The True Story of Oysters and Champagne with The Hungry Gentlemen and Peter Ford

https://cms.visitballarat.com.au/app/uploads/2021/01/5ffe7bc17f85c0202d3fe80e.jpeg

Do you like oysters? Do you like bubbles? Do you like being told amazing stories? Then join award-winning wine and food writers Max Allen and Richard Cornish – The Hungry Gentleman – as they recount the stories of the amazing oyster reefs that once existed in the shallow waters of the bays and around the coast.

They described their beautiful and diverse ecosystems, teeming with fish and as biodiverse as rainforests, they were harvested to feed Gold Rush Melbourne and Ballarat. A live spoken word one-hour presentation will be delivered in a secret historic Ballarat location while Ballarat food icon Peter Ford will be opening dozens of the fresh oysters to be shared with Pyrenees sparkling wine afterward.
