Today we kick off AIME (Asia-Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo), a huge two-day show at MCEC showcasing the best Australian and international destinations, products and services in the industry. MCEC is a major sponsor and each year our chefs work with the organisers to create menus and prepare dishes for the show’s visitors. In its 20th year, AIME is sure to be a big one and our kitchen team have a few surprises up their chef jacket sleeves.
The hosted buyer’s welcome luncheon today will feature a Victorian inspired menu showcasing local produce (Gippsland beef, Yarra Valley Salmon, Yarra Valley Gourmet Greenhouse heirloom tomatoes and Mildura figs) – matched with a selection of wines from the Central Victoria region – giving AIME’s international and national visitors a true taste of Victoria. Guests will also be treated to a surprise guest performance!
Our pastry chefs have prepared something a little special to mark AIME’s 20th anniversary and this will be unveiled at the opening ceremony tomorrow morning so make sure you’re on the exhibition centre concourse at 9.45am.
Our AIME Sunny Ridge strawberry ice cream was a huge hit at last year’s show and this year visitors can taste some of our Royal Melbourne Fine Food Award medal-winning ice cream. Look out for the From Farm to Fork ice cream cart at MCEC’s stand where we’ll be serving three of our delish flavours: yoghurt ice cream, Campbells Rutherglen Muscat Sabayon ice cream and our gold winning mandarin and passionfruit sorbet.
The Globe Restaurant and SingaporeXpress are open tomorrow and Wednesday from 11.30am – 3pm. MCEC chefs have created a South African inspired menu for the Globe Restaurant where people can dine on two or three course meals with two tastings of white and red wine. Or drop into the SingaporeXpress restaurant where you can see our chefs cook hawker-like cuisine including dishes like Char Kway Teow, Laksa Satay and Gado Gado.
We hope you enjoy AIME, Melbourne, Victoria and everything edible in between!
