Upcoming event: Settler's Cove Celebration of Australian Food and Wine: 18-20 May
For all you fellow Queensland foodies out there, just a bit of a heads up on a great event coming our way. It's the annual Settler's Cove Celebration of Australian Food and Wine 2007, and it's held right here in Noosa from the 18th to the 20th of May.
Tickets are on sale now, and range from $25 for entry to food and wine tasting sessions, to $75 for celebrity chefs' cooking classes, to a hefty $250 for a 7 course "Great Australian Degustation", where 7 leading Aussie chefs collaborate to prepare a scrumptious tasting menu with wines to match. You can bet that Bev and I will be attending as many sessions as our wallets would allow!
Of the famous chefs participating in the event, Bev and I are particularly looking forward to welcoming Giovanni Pilu (Pilu at Freshwater, Sydney), Matt Moran (Aria, Sydney), Matt McConnell (Bar Lourinha, Melbourne), Brent Savage (Bentley Restaurant and Bar, Sydney) and Meyjitte Boughenout (Absynthe, Gold Coast) to the event. These are just a few of many big names attending and contributing to the festivities. For more information, or to purchase tickets, do visit the event website.
See you there!
