Matt Mixes with Mary Valley Flavours

Highly acclaimed chef, Matt Golinski, will use the flavours of local Mary Valley produce to create seasonal delights in the Centre Park in Imbil on Sunday June 9. The passionate cook, whose resume includes roles as executive chef at Ricky Ricardos at Noosa, founding partner in his highly successful Rolling Dolmade catering company and one of the favourite chefs on Channel 10 network’s Ready Steady Cook TV series, is pleased to help promote Mary Valley Country Flavours.

Matt will create his own dishes using local produce and highlighting what is readily available from Valley growers at the event.  “As a local Sunshine Coast resident I’m very familiar with the great range of produce on offer in the Mary Valley.  I love any chance to promote what we have available here in our own backyard and am looking forward to sharing some delicious creations with locals and visitors at the Flavours event.”

Project Coordinator Lesa Bell is excited to have attracted a chef of such calibre.  Ms Bell said Matt’s passion for using local food would inspire others to do the same and prompt them to think about the importance of using food in season.

Mary Valley Inc developed the Flavours project to assist in the economic recovery of the Mary Valley and build business capacity.  The flavours concept is part of the “Mary Valley Country – come out to play” tourism marketing campaign.  “The aim is to raise awareness of local food production, have our food outlets creating signature dishes and giving our visitors a locally grown experience,” Ms Bell said.

A Flavours brand and accreditation for businesses and growers is being developed so visitors to the Valley can be assured that they are enjoying the best of Mary Valley produce as they dine.   Everyone is invited to meet Matt and sample great food at the Imbil Centre Park on Sunday June 9.

We hope to see you there!
