One of the many perks of living where I do is that Noosa is host to Australia’s premier food event, the Noosa International Food and Wine Festival. How lucky am I to have this four fantastic days of fun right on my doorstop? Last weekend marked the festival’s twelth year, and what a party it was! Fabulous food ranging from gourmet burgers to elaborate degustation dinners, an incredible selection of wines from all over Australia, celebrity chef spotting, cooking demonstrations by inspirational chefs, insightful panel discussions featuring prominent food industry talent, fantastic entertainment – all taking place in a gorgeous setting.
Here’s a pictorial snapshot of the 2015 Festival:
