Why: Celebrating the beautiful winter produce from The Falls Farm, a generative produce farm based in Mapleton, renowned Chef Cameron Matthews will be mentoring four next-generation chefs. Their brief is to generate new ideas, one course each around one winter vegetable, with protein only allowed as an accompaniment (less than 10 percent of the dish). The outcome will be a delicious four-course degustation that celebrates the power of community, the importance of sustainable agriculture, and the impact of good food on our lives.

Time: 18:00 to 21:30

Location: Harry’s on Buderim

Event name:5 Farmers and a Chef’ [ticket link] 

Why: Check out the video interview we recently posted with Harry’s on Buderim 2 Hatted - Chef Owner Stuart Bell. The history and ambience at Harry’s is incredible and Stuart and his team are continuing the legacy with their modern Australian cuisine celebrating local produce. For this event they will be serving a 5 course degustation featuring produce from local suppliers and farmers. We heard from a reliable source that our iconic Woodford blend, that the team at Harry’s normally serves their customers through the espresso machine, will be featured as part of the menu as well. If you are keen to bring this big and bold coffee into your home, order Woodford Blend online.  

Asian Food Festival

Date: Saturday 5th August 2023

Time: 13:00 to 18:00

Location: Spicers Tamarind Retreat

Event name: ‘Sunshine Coast Asian Food Festival’ [ticket link]  

Why: Our friends from Spirit House, whom we have been collaborating with for more than a decade, will be one of the talented teams serving their innovative and delicious dishes at the Asian Food Festival. There is not much more that needs to be said after their Head Chef Tom Hitchcock was recently crowned as Foodservice Australia 2023 – Chef of the Year. Such an amazing achievement in his first head chef position at a young age. If a festival is not your thing, but you are keen to enjoy their modern and innovative take on Thai cuisine be sure to book a table at either the main restaurant or their Hong Sa Bar. Besides the food you will love the film-set like tropical Thai atmosphere they have created on the property. It is like a full immersive experience.
