Scenic Rim Eat Local Week lifts the lid on 2019 and the flavours are extraordinary!
Best clear the diary from June 29 through to July 7, and for the weeks leading up for that matter, because Scenic Rim Eat Local Week has unveiled the 2019 program and every event is a must-attend (amazing images available on request)!
Featuring more than 90 events from Canungra to The Lost World, Beaudesert to Boonah, Tamborine Mountain to Kalbar, Scenic Rim Eat Local Week is the ultimate backstage pass to the farms, wineries and food stories of the region. The famed event presents the opportunity to meet the people behind the produce and the flavours, in a celebration that features festivals, farm-gate events and culinary experiences for foodies of all ages.
Set against the natural beauty of the Scenic Rim, a region of more than 4,200 square kilometres of rich volcanic soil surrounded by ancient mountains and home to thousands of famers and food creators, Eat Local Week is one of the most authentic food festivals in the world. The Scenic Rim is just one hours’ drive from Brisbane.
Shaking the muddied hand of a farmer in the middle of a carrot paddock while sipping on local carrot beer and watching a fashion parade of Carrot Couture is testament to just how extraordinary this famed event is.
The program is overflowing with must-see and must-taste experiences, from degustations and carrot picking to Jamming with the Lambs at Towri Sheep Cheeses where farmers Carolyn and Dallas working with Spicers Retreats’ Executive Chef Cameron Matthews create a truly amazing scene, with roaring fires, live jazz and lambs to cuddle, to Kate Raymont’s Degustation at The Overflow Estate 1895 and O’Reilly’s Canungra Valley Vineyard’s Longest Lunch which sees the shared table grow longer every year!
There’s camel cheese tasting, beer and wine lunches, and a long table lunch on a sixth generation working Dairy Farm prepared by Glen Barratt, one of Queensland’s finest chefs. Breakfast with the Jersey Girls
