Forget the mystery yellow popcorn, mostly-soda water-post-mix Coke and that cinema hotdog that looks so old it could legally buy itself a drink in a bar, what you deserve with your film-watching experience is a divine cocktail served up with delicious dishes whipped up by Melbourne’s best restaurants. Think beyond Gold Class.
Well, Gourmet Cinema kicks off this week from Thursday, 1 March at Caulfield Racecourse with the movie Chef presented by Collingwood’s Mexican restaurant amigo of the moment, Hotel Jesus.
