The finalists revealed…
August 25, 2017
Drumroll please! Announcing the top 5 burgers, cocktails and Festival Dishes, as determined by you (alphabetical order):
BEST FESTIVAL DISH
Thanks to all who scored and rated and congrats to all the finalists! Please note: For the first time we are announcing finalists prior to festival closing. This is following on from feedback from the public that they wish to know who the top are so they have a chance to try them, and allows our panel of mystery judges 2.5 days to visit each finalist to review the dishes.
Who will win?
The winners will be announced Thursday 31 August – and you could be there! For the first time ever, we invite you, the public, to join us at the inaugural Festival Awards.
What was the burger cook-off is now a celebration of the finalists in the Best Burger, Best Cocktail and Best Festival Dish categories.
Tickets only $75 - grab your mates and enjoy eats inspired by the finalists dishes whilst sipping on Wellington Wine Country or Garage Project bevvies in this informal cocktail-style evening and be the first to find out who reigns supreme in Welly’s dining scene.
Whilst a pretty complex algorithm analyses all your scores to bring you these 15 worthy winners, there’s still an abundance of other dishes that were deemed tasty and just missed the cut. We bring you a short summary and shout out to the following (alphabetical):
