Ricotta Festival 2022

1 May @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Ricotta Festival 2022
Join us for an Italian Sunday Festa, celebrating all things ricotta!
After the huge success of our first Ricotta Festival in 2021, the second edition is back bigger and better with plenty of food and entertainment for the whole family!
We will celebrate this day Italian-style, serving up fresh hot ricotta straight from the vat and a variety of dishes and drinks for you to feast on. This includes ricotta gnocchi, ravioli, porchetta rolls, sausages, Gippsland Jersey milkshakes, Cannoleria cannoli and cocktails from Imbue Distillery.
Put your dancing shoes on as Siesta Cartel will be on stage performing Italian music all day. Entertainment also includes a petting farm for the little ones, a local producer marketplace and educational talks by Giorgio Linguanti (founder of That’s Amore Cheese).
Join the Masterclass with Julia Ostro!
Make your own ricotta gnocchi with cook and author Julia Busuttil Nishimura.
Julia will be hosting two 45 minutes intimate masterclass sessions. During this hands-on experience, you will learn how to make fluffy pillows of homemade ricotta gnocchi from her best selling cookbook Ostro, while enjoying a glass of wine!
To be part of this masterclass you must purchase a ‘Premium Experience’ ticket. This ticket also includes entry to the Ricotta Festival, entertainment, ricotta calda, ricotta gnocchi, salsiccia, and cannolo from the main festival area.
With very limited availability, book early to secure your spot.
