This weekend in Brisbane there is a wonderful food festival beside the river at Southbank. Regional Flavours brings together food growers and producers and winemakers keen to show their wares and knowledge. More than 100 stallholders from across Queensland are showcasing the state’s best produce to taste and buy.
My friend and I were there early to beat the crowds and take advantage of some lovely winter sun. Come for a walk through Southbank and Regional Flavours with us.
We started off at the Food Imaginarium where Reginald Bertwhistle and his friends entertained children and their parents with interactive workshops and demonstrations and food-themed fun.
A city garden with a clever water feature entertained children as well.
There was delicious food for sale from food trucks and pretty tents.
There was a delightful area beside the river.
We sampled delicious ocean trout from Stokehouse.
Later we had a mini chicken burger.
And raspberries and cream.
While a crow watched from above…hoping something might fall to the ground.
Lots of wineries displayed their wares.
Martin Duncan was there to tell us about delicious food from the Sunshine Coast and the Sunshine Coast Real Food Festival to be held at Maleny on 7th and 8th September at the Maleny Showgrounds from 9.00am – 4.00pm…I think we will have to go…I love a good food festival.
Regional Food is on again tomorrow, Sunday 21st July…go along if you are in Brisbane, it’s great fun.
