And then, of course, there are the International chef dinners and Langham Melbourne MasterClass sessions, which showcase the knowledge and talent of star chefs from around the globe. The 2015 line-up is solid. Here are our hottest picks.
Where he cooks Blue Hill and Blue Hill at Stone Barns, New York, USA
What he's famous for Dan Barber is best-known for his ethical stance on food and agriculture. His cooking, which is best described as earthy, produce-focused and heavily reliant on the seasons, has earned him many accolades - among them, a spot in Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People list in 2009. Barber has also written extensively on the topic of sustainable eating, which is the focus of his book The Third Plate: Field Notes on the Future of Food (Penguin, $34.32, hbk).
Where you can catch him Theatre of Ideas: In Conversation with Dan Barber (6 March).
Where she cooks The River Café, London, UK
What she's famous for Chef and co-founder of London landmark The River Café, Ruth Rogers is a pioneer in seasonal Italian cooking. Her food is renowned for its fresh, rustic, regionally focused qualities. The 10 River Café books she wrote with the late Rose Gray, her partner in business and the kitchen, have sold by the thousands, garnering acclaim the world over.
Where you can catch her Langham Melbourne MasterClass (7 and 8 March).
Where he cooks Coppa, Boston, and Toro, Boston and New York, USA
What he's famous for Jamie Bissonnette is your go-to guy for nose-to-tail cooking in Boston. His restaurants, the Italian-accented Coppa and the Spanish-influenced Toro (which also has a branch in New York), have made waves in the US with their richly produce-centric menus. He's pretty handy when it comes to charcuterie, too, so much so that he wrote a book about it - The New Charcuterie: Exceptional Cured Meats to Make and Serve at Home (Page Street Publishing, $29.72, hbk).
Where you can catch him Langham Melbourne MasterClass (7 and 8 March) and International Chef Dinner at Bomba (4 March).
Where he cooks L'Enclume, Aulis, The French by Simon Rogan, Fera at Claridges, Rogan & Co., Mr Cooper's House & Garden, and The Pig & Whistle, UK
What he's famous for Is Simon Rogan Britain's busiest chef? With seven restaurants under his belt you'd certainly think so. Rogan cut his teeth in the kitchens of Jean-Christophe Novelli and Marco Pierre White before opening L'Enclume, his fine diner in England's Lake District in 2002. Today, his portfolio spans everything from fine dining to pub fare, and he's recognised across the country for his support of organically farmed produce.
Where you can catch him International Chef Dinner at The Royal Mail Hotel (14 March).
Where he cooks Hartwood, Tulum, Mexico
What he's famous for Eric Werner's cooking, some could argue, is as planet-friendly as it gets. At Hartwood, his remote Caribbean-accented restaurant set in the jungles of Tulum, he cooks only with fire and produce sourced from local farms. The restaurant's waste is broken down into compost and its power is derived solely form solar panels. And Werner still manages to turn out food that's fresh and modern, with a touch of rusticity.
Where you can catch him International Chef Dinner at Newmarket Hotel (1 March).
The 2015 Melbourne Food & Wine Festival runs from 27 February-15 March.
