Melbourne Media Launch for An Appetite for Melbourne

Last week we celebrated the official Australian launch of my little pocket travel guide An Appetite for Melbourne, which was a collaboration with independent UK publishers Herb Lester Associates and US designer Ross Bruggink.

The guide is already selling in book shops all around the world - from London to Paris, Berlin, Tokyo and New York City and I felt it was only apt that we throw a proper party to celebrate the local launch.

In true Melbourne style, our venue for the night was a place steeped in history, shrouded in mystery and hidden down an obscure CBD laneway - at central Melbourne's wonderfully atmospheric Kelvin Club.

The event was sponsored by some of Melbourne's best purveyors of food, wine and lovely things and I would like to take the time now to thank each of them very much for their generosity and support.

Here's a list of the wonderful friends that made the night such a hit:
