Sunshine Coast on a plate

Queensland’s Sunshine Coast is renowned for its produce and Asian-inspired restaurants and cooking schools, so all those ingredients will be put together when the region stages its first ever Sunshine Coast Asian Food Festival on Sunday 11 February 2018.

The Festival will be held in the Sunshine Coast hinterland village of Maleny in the luscious rainforest surrounds of Spicers Tamarind Retreat, home to the renowned Tamarind restaurant and cooking school.

The Tamarind’s award-winning chefs will showcase six dishes, complemented by beverages to match the dishes’ flavours, along with cooking demonstrations. Festival goers are encouraged to bring a picnic blanket and settle in for an afternoon of live entertainment and outstanding food.

In between tastings, guests can take a walk down to the beautiful Gardners Falls, along a dedicated walking track from Spicers Retreat’s grounds.

Spicers Tamarind Retreat General Manager, Ryan Dillon, said that with the Retreat named after the highly-prized Asian tropical fruit, it was natural to hold the first-ever Sunshine Coast Asian Food Festival at The Tamarind.

Many of the herbs and spices used in dishes at The Tamarind and the Cooking School are grown on the property, while the Sunshine Coast’s abundant, high-quality fish, meat, poultry and vegetables allows the chefs to create rich and authentic dishes that highlight why Asian cuisine is so suited to the Sunshine Coast.
