The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) has unveiled a new menu for 2022, which will feature Victoria’s finest fresh seasonal produce.

From grab-and-go gourmet to sophisticated dining, the food offerings have been given a new look, as well as include more diverse options such as vegetarian, vegan and gluten-friendly meals.

The beverage selection has also been given a facelift, and now includes house-made cocktails using spirits from Victorian distilleries, as well as Seltzers from Melbourne-based Moon Dog Craft Brewery.

Highlights include the new cocktail menu, with canapes to choose from such as Green mango, tofu, edamame, and sambal rice paper roll with nam prik or Truffle mushroom, whipped Meredith goat cheese and lemon thyme tart.

Meanwhile, the gala menu includes options of seared Wimmera duck breast with spiced carrot puree, pan fried panisse, crisp seasonal greens and red wine jus, and Seared Victorian 3030 barramundi with saffron potato, baba ganoush and herb oil.

MCEC also continues to offer sustainable options such as Ecoboxes and the 100-Mile Menu, a three-course plated menu including canapés, where all main ingredients are sourced from local farms and markets within 161km (100 miles) of MCEC, supporting Victorian food producers while reducing the carbon footprint.
