  • The World Loves Melbourne was privileged to attend the night of nights of the Australian Dairy Industry at Greenfields in Albert Park. The esteemed Australian Grand Dairy Awards has announced its 2017 Champions, revealing the nation’s 20 finest dairy products out of a record 470 entries. As a foodie I'm excited by our dairy industry - which is world class. We've seen consumers become more savvy in recent times when it comes to dairy, and the standard of dairy across the board is sky high.

  • Dinner by Heston Blumenthal in Australia, located on the third floor of Crown Towers Melbourne, celebrates a brand new dessert, VEGEMITE Ice Cream, inspired by the country’s love of the quintessentially Australian breakfast spread. The World Loves Melbourne was invited along to an exclusive preview of the exciting and stunning new dessert. The team, led by Group Executive Chef Ashley Palmer-Watts have been exploring the origins of the Australian pantry staple, to create a dessert that amplifies the distinct flavour of the iconic spread. Over six months in development back in Bray, UK the favourite Australian spread, created in the early 1900’s, was deconstructed to uncover a unique blend of flavours.

  • The World Loves Melbourne was privileged to experience the Lavazza Superbox at the Australian Open. Last year we said this was the best corporate box experiences ever, and this year was amazing. The location in the Rod Laver Arena combined with peerless hospitality, was sensational. To have the Lavazza family present in the Superbox was an honour. Having enjoyed Lavazza coffee consistently over many years, we can identify strongly with the brand.

  • LULU Cafe and Gallery is a shining European style haven in North Melbourne for foodies and art lovers alike. This is surely one of the hidden gems of Melbourne. The World Loves Melbourne was invited to LULU Cafe and Gallery to sample the menu (including breakfast/lunch all day menu as well as the dinner menu) and was highly impressed.

  • Best burgers in Melbourne, we have searched high and low for the best this city has to offer. The humble burger has risen in status to be a gourmet item of choice on menus across Melbourne. Culinary giants are making their own burger versions for customers. There seems to be a trend away from old school burgers to burgers that incorporate more gourmet and quality ingredients. The trend is away from the huge burger to something almost stylish and smaller - yet packs a punch.

Here is the interview by David Hagger from The World Loves Melbourne with Electro-house sensation Will Sparks:

1)What or who is your main inspiration?

Will: Definitely all the main boys from Melbourne..Orkestrated, Joel Fletcher, Samual James etc. Along with growing up listening to Deadmau5, Showtek, Afrojack, Avicii, Axwell & Steve Angello.. All these artists made me love dance music.

2)How did you become an international DJ supremo so quickly

Will: I think every person who is successful got to where they are from extreme hard work, passion, dealing with the lows and picking them self back up. A big one would have be being kind to everyone no matter what, networking, making friends and having time for the people that support you etc. The social network is your key to success these days, music wise. If you make music that a large majority of people enjoy then it will create hype and probably end up hitting millions of newfeeds.. Basically if you say you can’t do it, then you’re right.

3)Where is your fav place in the world and why?

Will: So far, Best Food & Wine, Palermo – Italy & Lyon – France 

Holiday wise probably have to be Airlie Beach/Hamilton Island

Clubbing – Vegas or Melbourne at its early stages of the genre

4)For aspiring DJ's what kind of equipment did you start with? 

Will: I started with 2 CDJ 800’s and a 700 mixer. Literally all I ever did was play sets in my room for hours. These days I encourage aspiring djs to get 2 cdj 2000’s and a 900 mixer, it’s the club standard so you will be at home for your gigs. My first gig ever I played on 1000’s for the first time so it wasn’t fun when already being so nervous

5)What is the concept behind Melbourne Bounce?

Will: Happy, boppy, yet dirty

6)Do you still have a connection with Caulfield Grammar?

Will: Not at all, I’m sure they miss me J

7)What does the future hold in 2014 for you?

Will: I’m constantly touring around the world this year. My schedule is ridiculous. An Album is coming and basically finished, heaps of singles are already on the way so I hope everyone enjoys!
