Regional Flavours Brisbane
If you're a foodie with a love for uncovering fantastic kitchen
knowledge and appreciate the beauty in fine local produce, a weekend at
Regional Flavours Brisbane
presented by The Courier-Mail is a must for your event calendar.
Held in the picturesque South Bank Parklands, Brisbane's signature wine and
dine shindig features live cooking demonstrations by celebrity chefs, farm
fresh produce from Queensland's market movers and shakers, live music and
delectable gourmet fare.
If you're a fan of fresh, then the Marketplace is for you! Shop direct from
90 farmers, producers and purveyors from around Queensland, who will be
serving up the best of gourmet ingredients from nuts, berries, spices and
everything in between.
This year's festival also boasts a stellar line-up of live demonstrations
across four stages from renowned names, including modern sweets maestro
Darren Purchese, Logan Food Ambassador Poh Ling Yeow, and MasterChef
Australia Judges Matt Preston, Gary Mehigan and George Calombaris.
For a more intimate cooking experience, be sure to visit the Queensland
Taste Stage, where local chefs will be whipping up delicious fare from
superior Queensland produce for you to taste and try. Or wander the wine
trail outside to savour a sangiovese, local pinot, merlot and other drops
rich in Queensland terroir. Once you've settled on your favourite drop,
kick back in the winter sunshine and enjoy live music by emerging artists
at the City Sounds Stage.
Presentations of the meatier kind can be found at The Hunting Club Stage,
where you can experience lamb and beef cooking demonstrations, butchery
masterclasses and hear stories from South East Queensland graziers. The
Hunting Club is also the venue to match your meat with a local malt, with
selections from four Queensland craft breweries on tap. Bistro style plates
designed specially to compliment the beers will also be available
throughout the afternoon and well into the evening.
Alternatively, eat your way around the Sunshine State at one of the many
eatSouthBank Street Stalls run by some of South Bank's most renowned
restaurateurs; or indulge in a signature cocktail on the lively gourmet
picnic lawns of River Quay Green.
Regional Flavours is set to be a stellar weekend for any self-respecting
food and wine fan. Better yet, it's entirely FREE. Visit regionalflavours.com.au
