The Noosa International Food & Wine Festival just celebrated its 10-year birthday, and what a party it was! Australia’s premier food event pulled out all stops to mark the occasion, with an amazing line-up of local, national and international chefs, food personalities, winemakers and first class entertainment. Visitors to the festival were spoilt for choice, with a diverse selection of cooking demonstrations, panel discussions, lunches and dinners, food and wine tastings, lifestyle events, concerts and much more – all taking place in stunning locations.
Our very own Spanner Crabs Noosa has picked up two awards in the prestigious 2011 Produce Awards. Now in their sixth year, the Produce Awards encourage, showcase and reward Australia’s top producers in categories including “From the Earth”, “From the Dairy”, “From the Paddock”, “From the Sea” and “Artisan”.
Noosa Spanner Crabs was recognised as one of three medallists in the “From the Sea” category for their raw crabmeat, and was inducted into the new “Hall of Fame Awards” category which recognises consistent excellence.
All producers who entered the awards were shortlisted by a panel of Australia’s leading chefs from around the nation before being presented to the national judges – Matt Moran, Philip Johnson, Cheong Liew, Alla Wolf-Tasker, and Maggie Beer, patron of the Produce Awards.
Congratulations Spanner Crabs Noosa – we’re proud of you!
