Pop-up bars, street-style food and a gourmet soup kitchen will all be popping up at the fourth annual James Street Food & Wine Trail from Thursday July 30 to Saturday August 1. Check out the Chefs-In-Action stage, join degustation dinners, listen in on culinary discussions, view foodie films, kick up your heels at the Gerard’s Bistro Laneway Party, browse the Makers Markets and tire out the kids at the festival’s interactive art space. Swing by the new James Street x OzHarvest Pop-Up Soup Kitchen to indulge in fireside soups from Bucci, Gerard’s Bistro, Chowhouse and more, take a break in the Urban Picnic Zone with street-style meals from James Street venues and Stone & Wood beers, Aperol Spritz and Pimm’s. The Melbourne Food & Wine Festival is also making an appearance this year, with a collaboration between Huxtaburger and Huxtable chef Daniel Wilson and Harveys Bar and Bistro’s PJ McMillan.
