The Regional Flavours festival hits South Bank for another year this weekend with a bigger, tastier celebration of food and flavour. Queensland’s finest providores will be displaying delicious produce from all over the state, from chewy Nougat by the Australian Nougat Company to farm fresh avocados from Apthorpe farm. There is nothing better than fresh, local produce!
This event is so much more than a food festival as it celebrates and pays tribute to the beautiful food and produce that comes out of our state. Be prepared to be astounded by the quality of the fruits and vegetables on display by our famers and learn a little more about how to grow them yourself in the special Epicurious Garden.
Of course such a delicious and special event is going to reel in some famous faces. This years Regional Flavours is hosting Masterchef’s own Matt Preston, The Living Room’s Miguel Maestre, famed food journalist Kate Gibbs and Paul West from River Cottage. Brush the flour off your cookbook for a signing, attend a masterclass, or expand your culinary knowledge at an Eat-Show-Tell; there are so many ways to rub shoulders with your favourite foodie.
Not only are they bringing in stall after stall of delicious treats but all of your favourite South Bank fare will be in on the action too. Little Stanley and Grey Street restaurants will be offering up special market-style dishes. Perfect to have a couple (or a more!) tasting plates. And if you’re not too stuffed with that, Brisbane’s food truck fleet will be there in force too.
This is a free event and will be in full swing both Saturday the 18th and Sunday the 19th. Enjoy!
