Tastes of the South Festival

March 29, 2014 - March 30, 2014

This coming weekend (March 29 – 30) Joe’s Bar and Dining Hall is hosting a festival of food that will journey across 12 of the Southern States of America. Part owner of Joe’s Bar and renowned chef, Andrew Blake says he fell in love with Southern flavours after travelling the South-­West on a search for the holy grail of ribs. He says “Melbourne is slowly acquainting itself with the traditions of Southern style food and we’re excited to be driving the trend.”

A weekend of food, drink and Southern US culture wouldn’t be complete without a chilli-­eating contest. From 4pm on Sunday March 30 you can show the world what your taste buds are made of.  Entry is via Facebook. Go on, we dare you! 

Be sure to head along this weekend for an amazing array of southern tastes and experiences – send your photos from the event to
