Looking for unforgettable experiences that will leave you hungry for more? Helen Flanagan serves up palate pleasers, innovative locations and star turns appearing at this year’s Noosa Eat & Drink Festival.
Picture yourself on Noosa Main Beach sipping bubbles, eating freshly shucked oysters or dancing and dining with your feet in the sand.
How about enjoying fancy dinners, long lunches, big brunches and degustations with a well-known chef or two in a café, a restaurant, the Hinterland, on a train or on world-famous Hastings Street.
Let us not forget the indulgence of eating slow, spicy, succulent servings, seafood or something sweet on a beach, river, island, golf course, farm or lining the famed Hastings Street.
Ahh yes, all this and more as foodies discover unique aromas, fresh flavours, and moreish food, plus the inimitable beverages and thirst quenchers.
This year’s Noosa Eat & Drink, from Thursday 10 to Monday 13 June, brings together a full-bodied, locally-grown program of indulgent, albeit fun, adventures.
It is all about showcasing the best of the country alongside the home-grown heroes, be they chefs, craft beer makers and distillers, winemakers, producers or restaurateurs.
Let your foodie adventure turn into a learning experience with cooking demos from celebrated chefs and young guns to celebrated food professionals, and local artisan producers.
