Brisbane will get a taste to remember when the inaugural delectable Brisbane food festival waves a gastronomic goodbye at FOOD Bowl, City Botanic Gardens tomorrow, (Sunday 29 July).
The culmination of the two week food-fest will be a palate pleasing parade of Brisbane’s best restaurants plating up some of their Queensland favourites.
Delectable Brisbane creative director Anthony Bastic said FOOD Bowl was a great opportunity to experience Queensland’s cooking and musical talent together.
“It’s like the closing ceremony of the Queensland Culinary Olympics,” Mr Bastic said. “This is one of those rare moments when the best chefs in town get together and strut their stuff.”
“22 of Brisbane’s leading restaurants will take their kitchens to the Gardens to offer a unique insight into how taste sensations are created - and then you get to eat it!”
The FOOD Bowl menu includes Moda’s tapas plate of marinated Hervey Bay scallops with lemongrass and grapefruit, Brents crispy confit duck with Eureka lemon and liquorice, and Harveys beef oyster blade braised in Pedro Ximenez sherry.
Visitors can bring a picnic blanket and spend the day grazing, listening to the beautiful music and enjoying a glass of wine or local craft beer knowing that FOOD Bowl ticketholders get free Translink transport to and from the event.
Entry tickets are available at the gate (from 10.30am) or online at www.delectableqld.com.au.
Tasting plates cost from $8-12; alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks from $4.
Delectable Brisbane is supported by Events Queensland and Brisbane City Council.
