The first female champion takes out the crown with a duck and pork salami.
With a record number of 82 competitor salami entered coupled with record numbers through the gates the 2016 Melbourne Salami Festa was the biggest and best ever. The competition was fierce with Barbara Marshall wowing judges and taking out the Judge’s Choice Award edging out the Palermo family and Puglia&Son in 3rd spot. The Grand Salumi Hall played host to some of the best artisan producers of smallgoods in the country which ensured that we were able to introduce the Melbourne community to some high quality products all in the one place.
Special thanks must go to all our sponsors for their invaluable support as well as the mammoth effort put in by all our volunteers. But of course we reserve the biggest thank you to the makers who not only help preserve this tradition but make the festa the unique and the special event that it truly is.
All of Melbourne salutes you. See you in 2016!
