It is time to get excited about one of the world’s greatest food and wine festivals – where the best chefs from around the world descend on the idyllic seaside village of Noosa. Taking place from the 15th – 18th May, it’s a time for celebrating the best food, produce (and drinks of course) in the style for which this international food and wine festival has become famous worldwide. It’s a shoes-off, champagne-drinking, oyster-shucking good time.
Organisers of the festival are very excited to have David Thompson joining the lineup of internationally acclaimed chefs this year. Thompson’s Bangkok restaurant Nham was recently awarded the prize for Best Asian Restaurant in the San Pelligrino Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2014 awards.
Other exciting chefs joining the festival include Urbane’s Argentian-born, Brisbane local Alejandro Cancino (who has recently bought into the Urbane and The Euro); Shane Delia – famous for his Melbourne restaurant Maha and as star of his own SBS show Shane Delia’s Spice Journey; Dublin-born Colin Fassnidge, famous for his nose-to-tail cookery;
The program is packed with events, lunches, food trails, cocktail sessions, food and wine matched dinners, parties and more. Each day is brimming over with things to do and see, and more importantly, things to taste and sip.
A few of the events include the Ruby Luncheon on Thursday, hosted by Wendy Harmer; A Visit to Italy lunch on Friday, prepared by some of Australia’s best Italian chefs – Alessandro Pavoni, Giovanni Pilu and Nino Zoccali; a high tea with the masters of sweet, including Adriano Zumbo; and a seafood feast prepared by Neil Perry, to name but a few.
Saturday night’s Sixties themed beach party promises to be a highlight, with party-goers dressing in sixties beach attire and a Beach Boyz cover band who promises to get everyone up and dancing all night long. Chefs for the evening include Jonathan Barthelmess from The Apollo, Dan Hong from Mr Wong and Justin North, taking inspiration from sixties dance moves for their menu (mashed potato, anyone?).
If all this sounds up your alley, then make sure you head straight to the website and book in before all the events are sold out! Many have reached capacity already, and others are selling out quickly. www.noosafoodandwine.com.au.
