Welcome, skip to the content.

Take your taste buddies on a wander around the kitchens of Kyneton and Trentham, two of regional Victoria's top dining destinations. Small in size, these culinary villages punch well above their weight in fresh produce and fine dining, earning well-deserved reputations on the foodie trail.

Fill your belly and basket with a food-finding trip down Piper Street, Kyneton and High Street, Trentham. We've taste-tested the best of the eat streets so you can plan your culinary wander.

1. Source Dining, Kyneton

Go straight to the Source on Piper Street. Celebrating fresh, seasonal and local, this local favourite sources its produce from its own kitchen garden and handpicked local producers, and is hatted by The Age Good Food Guide.

2. Du Fermier, Trentham

Local culinary legend Annie Smithers handpicks produce from her kitchen garden to create her seasonal and daily French farmhouse-style menus. Her restaurant's warm culinary welcome has earned it a star in the Australian Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Guide.

3. Mr Carsisi, Kyneton

This is the mister you want to meet on Piper Street. Bringing Turkish, Lebanese and Persian culinary inspiration to Kyneton, Mr Carsisi is a top spot to meet for mezze, quaff a local wine or two and watch the world go by.

4. Cosmopolitan Hotel, Trentham

Taste your way around the neighbourhood without leaving the bar. The Cosmopolitan's mantra is 'eat, drink, love local', and there's a lot of love in the produce-driven menu, local wine list and beer offerings.

5. Midnight Starling, Kyneton

Add a little France-ing and romancing to your wander where Piper Street meets Paris. Savour the signature duck a l'orange or, for a special occasion, book in for the five- or eight-course Ma Cave seasonal degustation (weekends only).

6. Redbeard Historic Bakery, Trentham

Find the perfect bread and breakfast at Trentham's historic bakery, where the wood-fired, nineteenth century masonry oven is as much an attraction as the artisan baked treats it produces, and where you can break bread with friends at a sourdough making class.

7. Piper Street Food Company, Kyneton

Find yourself in the company of exquisite house-made terrine, sausage, rillettes and pâtés at this French charcuterie store. Stock up on gourmet bits and pastries for a picnic, or take a class and give yourself a big pât(é) on the back.

Side trip: Moto Bean, Malmsbury

Make a pit stop for specialty roasted beans and blends at Moto Bean Coffee Roasters, Malmsbury, and cosy up by the fire while you wait for the micro-batch roast to hit your cup.
