If you don’t already follow Khanh Ong on Instagram you need to do so immediately @khanhong to get all of the delicious and funny food content, including the iconic Micky’s Lunchbox series which puts most of our sad work lunches to shame.

Whether you know him from MasterChef, his podcast, Feast, or maybe you’ve eaten at his Melbourne restaurant, The George on Collins, it can’t be disputed that Khanh is amazing at not only cooking inspired by his Vietnamese heritage, but mastering cuisines and flavours from all over the world. It’s obvious, food is his love language, and we are absolutely in love.

Love the humble toastie? You’ll love Tim Bone. This Ballarat-based chef rose to fame in 2019 during his stint on MasterChef Australia, where he reached the semi-finals.

Tim loves bold, hearty flavours that feel like home, inspired by foodie greats including Jamie Oliver, Stephanie Alexander, Maggie Beer and the late Anthony Bourdain.

Trying a Tim Bone toastie is an indulgence to savour. This is not just a sandwich; this is an art of composition, with carefully selected ingredients from the bread, to the fillings and even the butter – everything local and artisan-made where possible

SUNDAY 7 MAY: 1.30pm – 2.00pm (Masterclass Marquee)

Buy a toastie from Tim at any time on Saturday & Sunday
