Noosa rated “Best for Food” by Lonely Planet Traveller Magazine

Noosa has featured highly in the latest “Lonely Planet Traveller” magazine. UK’s best selling travel magazine ranked Noosa No. 1 destination in Queensland for food, referring to Noosa as “the state’s food capital”. Our very own life’s a feast received a great review – we’re very excited to be internationally recognised!

Recipe: Chunky Gazpacho

With the temperatures climbing, lighter foods are definitely on the menu and this colourful chilled Spanish soup is perfect for this time of year.  In my version the vegetables are not pureed but still retain some crunch, giving the soup a lovely texture. It’s also extremely low in fat, which is great news for those of us that are trying to shed a couple of kilos in an attempt to fit into last year’s swimsuit!  For the best flavoured soup, ensure that the ingredients are top quality. A New Zealand sauvignon blanc is a good wine accompaniment if you’re not watching your weight.

Recipe: Mango Salsa

It’s mango season, and mangoes have arrived in abundance! Make the most of this gorgeous fruit which can be used in many dishes, both savoury and sweet. Some of my favourite ways to use mangoes include adding cubes to a Thai Curry, making Mango Daiquiris, baking a Mango Pie (recipe to follow soon, watch this space!) and in this delicious Mango Salsa. It’ s simple to make and pairs wonderfully with chicken, pork, duck, prawns and all seafood. Enjoy!
