Culinary expert, food writer and presenter, Melissa Leong, will join comedian Colin Lane to host the ultimate stand-up cook-off, challenging the festival's top talent to create a dish highlighting some of the Barossa’s best produce. Drinks expert Mike Bennie will challenge comedians to make him a cocktail that nearly killed them.
