TSA invites you to Blood is thicker than Water, a Melbourne Food and Wine Festival Event

Scott had an idea ... a killer idea. He had long wanted to do a 'blood crawl', checking out the various restaurants in Melbourne serving some sort of Morcilla, or blood pudding variant ... but it always seemed that only one or two at a time were serving. So, instead he asked the McConnell brothers to collaborate with him in creating a menu of blood tapas to pair with various 'blood'n'roses' examples of the wonderful Mencia red grape from Galicia. Now it's a Melbourne Food & Wine Festival event. Read on, and book in!!!

Chef brothers Matt and Andrew McConnell unite with wine importer, The Spanish Acquisition, for a blood-inspired street party moving between their neighbouring establishments Casa Ciuccio and Cutler & Co.
Starting in one venue and spilling onto Gertrude St, enjoy a selection of bloody morsels paired with glorious Mencia wine from Spain. Then, walk the short distance to the second venue where you will experience further blood-inspired dishes and wines such as morcilla, boudin noir, canard au sang, blood on toast.
