Down by the Meadow - A Vegan Dinner with Junction Moama

The goal is not to do business with everybody who needs what you have. The goal is to do business with people who believe what you believe.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Australia is the third-fastest growing vegan market in the world. It’s never been cooler to be kind, and now, we are super excited to finally announce that we are collaborating with Junction Moama to hold a completely plant-based, five course dinner as part of the 2019 Melbourne Food and Wine Festival!

Junction Moama is a stunning restaurant and bar located on the Murray River, with a menu that is devoted to seasonal, local produce complemented by beverages with a regional focus.


While the raw ingredients we work with may differ, our establishments share a similar ethos - we believe in sustainable and ethical food production, and realise the importance of eating local seasonal produce. Our food is made from scratch using real ingredients with the goal of creating wholesome, delicious dishes that are as good for you as they look.

I have been in awe of this venue since I first visited back in June 2016 after an email from the restaurant’s then-Marketing Manager (thanks Em!). We had only just started renovating the cottage and were still months away from opening The Sweet Meadow.

It’s exciting that now, two years later, we are joining forces with Junction Moama’s Head Chef Dave Palmer to create a wholefood, plant-based menu that will allow you to indulge (guilt-free) in a sophisticated setting.


Whether you are vegan, a vegetarian, or someone who enjoys meat and dairy products, you’ll benefit hugely by increasing the percentage of plant-based foods in your diet. It’s not about forcing people to completely change their eating habits overnight, but rather encourage diners to gradually add more nutrient-rich foods to everyday life.


This is our first foray into evening dining and we can’t wait to showcase how accessible and enjoyable plant-based cuisine can be.

Hope you can join us for a fun evening bonding over good food!
