At Our Table

The Q150 and State Library of Queensland’s At Our Table - celebrating Queensland people, our stories, our food – begins this month with the launch event – The Winemaker’s Story in Stanthorpe.

I wish I could be there on Sunday (23 August) when the Queensland College of Wine Tourism opens their doors for a day of good food, fine wine and tales of the Granite Belt. Local winemakers will be sharing their stories, traditions and techniques to unearth the region's 150 year wine making history.

Chef Andrew Simpson has created a menu inspired by Stanthorpe’s history and they will be releasing the long awaited Nude Food Calendar. Big secret - check E,D+bK on Sunday for the choicest calendar photos revealed!

You can visit the State Library stand and don the white gloves to view precious materials from the Collection including a recently discovered Queensland Cookbook dating back to 1860.

The next At Our Table event is a fine-dining experience - Fresh to the Table - at the Noosa Springs Resort on Monday 31 August. I've stayed at Noosa Springs and it's a great spot. The dining room has magnificent views over the golf course.

It's a chance to talk to chef Matt Golinski and chat with local farmers to talk about the future of fresh food.
