Pacific Epping will be transformed into a sweet tooth’s haven during the Festival of Foodies this weekend.

The shopping centre will be taken over by sweet delights, coming together for a market that will feature some of Melbourne’s favourite dessert trucks, including The Brulee Cart, The Bearded Bakers, Dr Donut and Rue De Creperie.

There will be cooking demonstrations, wine and cheese pairings, live music and family food activities, such as tomato crushing and pasta play.

Former My Kitchen Rules contestants Helena and Vikki Moursellas will headline Saturday’s cooking demonstrations, sharing their favourite family recipes.

Centre manager Simon Brown said the festival would transform the centre into a hub of food and foodies.

“The Festival of Foodies brings good food, good music and good fun to the centre,” he said.
