If your ideal Melbourne Cup day involves whiling away the afternoon with fine fare and a wine in hand at all times, Cucina Vivo at The Star is delivering the goods. The glamorous luncheon is luring punters with an exquisite five-course set-menu lunch accompanied by a delightful three-hour drinks package including a welcome beverage on arrival. Your feast will begin with a taste of Coffin Bay oysters with prosecco granita followed by Vanella burratina with fig and Villiani prosciutto. Next up will be Australian Bay lobster risotto followed by the main affair, the Milly Hill lamb rack with smoked eggplant puree. Your Italian feast will be brought to a spectacular close with a colourful dolci tropicana. Because no true Italian feast is complete without wine, guests can enjoy a selection of Moët & Chandon Imperial Brut, Moët & Chandon rosé, Cape Mentelle semillion sauvignon blanc, Corte Giara pinot grigio, Shaw & Smith shiraz, Norfolk Rise merlot and Cape Schanck pinot noir. Beer more your vibe? Sip Birra Moretti draught, James Squire One Fifty Lashes pale ale, Boags light or Peroni Leggera.
Keeping the good vibes flowing will be live entertainment, a Fashions off the Field contest and a special guest MC. Tickets to Cucina Vivo’s lavish Italian feast are $174.95 per person. Jump over here to book.
