21 July - 22 July
Brisbane foodies will be treated to a host of innovative and gourmet foods at this year’s Regional Flavours, including a locally-brewed coffee flavoured beer from Merlo, which can be sampled for the first time at the event.
Australia’s largest free food festival, Regional Flavours, will again showcase the freshest Queensland produce at street markets, a pop-up riverside bar and live cooking demonstrations on 21 and 22 July.
Lord Mayor Graham Quirk, who launched the event today, said the event would host a range of innovative food creations that harnessed the power of superfoods and fresh ingredients.
“Some of the country’s best chefs including Sarah Wilson, Jessica Sepel, Alastair McLeod and Katherine Sabbath will be at Regional Flavours to showcase healthy eating, with a focus on health substitutions for food intolerances and vegan diets,” Cr Quirk said.
“Food-lovers should get ready to sample exciting new products at Regional Flavours including Kehoe’s Kitchen pro-biotic beverages, cashew-based cheeses and yoghurts, camel milk products, kombucha and kefir drinks, as well as fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, spices, tea, honey, and Queensland wines.”
