Hungry festival-goers snaffle tickets

Tickets for the Good Taste Tram were snapped up so fast, Box Office has released a couple more, but that's capacity, so you will need to be quick to ride with Sonia and Nick Anthony on one of Bendigo's heritage trams, tasting local treats with a glass of local wine... nice!

The Fortuna Prelude Dinner is selling well too, so please don't leave it too long to book for that one, on Thursday 9 August, 7pm, at beautiful Fortuna Villa, in the company of Rosalie Triolo and Tom Griffiths. The Art of Time Travel is one of the finest, most readable, delectable books about Australian history you can possibly imagine. Enjoy!

And Tony Tan's cooking demo will inspire you - watch this master at work and taste the results, on Saturday 11 August, 1-4pm, in the training kitchen at Ulumbarra.
