Allan Campion - Founder of Melbourne Food Experiences
Melbourne Food Experiences was founded in 2002 by chef and food author Allan Campion.
Allan started his career as a chef in 1979, working in kitchens in Australia, Ireland, England and Turkey. Food travels brought him further afield to explore the cuisines of India, Japan, Hong Kong, Spain, France, Italy, Singapore, Vietnam and New York.
After more than 15 years as a chef, Allan turned his hand to food writing, becoming a contributor for publications such as Australian Gourmet Traveller, Epicure and The Sunday Age. He has also co-authored more than two dozen cookbooks and food guides, including The Foodies’ Diary, Foodies’ Guide to Melbourne, Chilli Jam and the best-selling Campion and Curtis in the Kitchen.
He has being involved in food tourism and events for over 15 years and has consulted for local and overseas businesses.
Melbourne Food Experiences was created to offer the best food tours, team building, team events, functions, restaurant dining and hampers in partnership with award winning chefs, restaurants, cocktail bars, wine experts and Victorian producers.
"The fast track to gaining an understanding of what’s going on in the restaurant, specialist food shop and café scene is Allan Campion’s Melbourne Food Experiences; a veteran of the city’s food scene, this former chef and author has found his niche sharing what he knows about Melbourne’s soft spot for eating and drinking. Which is a lot. He gets a kick out of guiding the hungry tourist into places most Melbournians don’t know exist."
