Fairfax Media’s Good Food Guide 2018 is set to expand beyond New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland, and shine a spotlight on must-visit dining destinations across Western Australia, South Australia, Australian Capital Territory, Northern Territory and Tasmania.
The Good Food Guide will – for the first time – visit capital cities in every Australian state and territory – from Darwin, Hobart, Sydney and Melbourne to Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide and Canberra.
On sale later this year, the expanded Good Food Guide is promising to be an all-encompassing national “bible” of reviews, revealing the restaurants across the nation that have been awarded a prestigious hat.
The Age Good Food Guide launched in 1979, followed by the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide in 1984 and, most recently, the Brisbane Times Good Food Guide in 2015.
“Our defining strength, and the reason why people trust the Good Food Guide, is the independence of our critics,” said Good Food Guide 2018 co-editor Myffy Rigby. “We’re stringent when it comes to judging. That means we look at service, ambience, X-factor, and – most importantly – food, to award those all-important hats.”
Distribution of the Guide will also increase in line with the national focus and will be on sale in newsagents across Australia, as well as online.
Along with reviews around the country, the Vittoria Coffee Restaurant of the Year, Citi Chef of the Year and Citi Service Excellence will be awarded nationally.
The national Good Food Guide 2018 will retail for $29.95.
