I loved it. My third foodi tour and they keep getting better. The highlight was Brunetti’s but I think that is a given due to the generosity of Fabio and the passion he has. Thanks again to Georgie..... the hostess with the mostest.

I would give it 4.5, if such a rate existed. Georgina was a very good guide, enthusiastic, informative and pleasant. The trip to Brunetti was excellent. Fabio was very generous with his time, giving us many interesting information about his products and business model. The food there was also excellent. The spice shop was interesting. I did not know the existence of so many spices in Australian cuisine.

Our time at Brunetti was extremely informative and we all agreed that tastings there were wonderful. Our second stop at the French delicatessen was interesting. The spice shop was an opportunity for us to purchase some spice. Our final stop for pasta was good. Our host was informative and a lovely gentleman.

The highlight of this tour was the Brunetti section. Fabio was so generous with his time and with all the food and drink at Brunetti. Amazing! King and Godfree was ordinary, and the final stop (cafe whose name I can't remember) was nothing special.
