On Tuesday night, the Kees had the privilege again to attend Eat Street 2014 (please see [HERE] and [HERE] for my previous accounts of this delectable event). The highly anticipated annual gourmet fundraiser supports Redkite, a charity that cares for children and families living with cancer. Sofitel Melbourne On Collins magnificent LaTrobe Ballroom was once again transformed into a sumptuous culinary extravaganza, otherwise known as ‘Eat Street’. Countless famous restaurants, dessert houses, wineries and cheese makers offer their signature dishes as entrée-sized servings to guests. The theme this year, very befitting of Sofitel’s Gallic roots, was French elegance.
I was in my element in a minimalist vintage Teena Varigos frock. Our babysitting plans had fallen through, so we brought mini Kee along. Even if we have to feed each other and take turns doing some ‘heavy lifting’, there was no way hubby and I were missing out on this night of nights. Although during the night we saw a lady who carried her bub in a sling so she could eat hands-free. Clever indeed. Sporting a Seed Heritage animal hoodie and an Armani bib, Winston was also set for some bite-sized fine dining. I was pregnant last year, so technically this is not his first Eat Street experience :)
Actually Winston provided us with the perfect excuse to
overindulge. We were doing weight-lifting after all. I must have downed about 50 samplings, most of which were desserts of course, hence why there are so few photos of food because I inhaled them all too quickly…*insert Oink here*
But the best part about Eat Street is that you can enjoy it with your loved ones. We were thrilled to see so many of our friends there and even more chuffed to run into ones we’d not expected to be there. What a perfect/delicious way to support such a worthy charity. How about we mark Eat Street into our calendars for next year in May?
