WATCH one of very own Week­end chefs, Peter Ku­ru­vita, bat­tle it out with other chefs on the waves dur­ing the Noosa Food and Wine Fes­ti­val. Ku­ru­vita (pic­tured dur­ing last year’s com­pe­ti­tion), who has at­tended many of the fes­ti­vals since 2008, will hit the surf at Sun­shine Beach to­mor­row morn­ing.

If you are feel­ing a lit­tle peck­ish, a ca­sual beach­front break­fast hosted by Ben O’Donoghue is also on of­fer.

The chefs’ surf­ing com­pe­ti­tion be­gins at 7am and break­fast is at 8am.

Ku­ru­vita and Noosa Beach House will also bring in­ter­na­tional favours to the table dur­ing the leg­endary Long Table Lunch in Hast­ings St, an event that is a def­i­nite crowd favourite.

The lunch fea­tures a three-course menu that cel­e­brates dishes from in­ter­na­tional des­ti­na­tions.

Ku­ru­vita said he was look­ing for­ward to many of the events dur­ing the week­end, as well as com­pet­ing in the surf­ing com­pe­ti­tion and hang­ing out with his chef mates.

“It is a hugely pop­u­lar and an­tic­i­pated event with its long his­tory, pro­fes­sion­al­ism, range of guest chefs and over 70 events,” he said.

“And of course it’s all set on the most beau­ti­ful beach and sur­rounds.”

Other chefs at­tend­ing the fes­ti­val in­clude Luke Man­gan, Alas­tair Mcleod and Noosa favourite Matt Golin­ski.

The fes­ti­val be­gan on Thurs­day and will fin­ish to­mor­row. The Noosa Woods, at the end of Hast­ings St, has been trans­formed into a food and wine vil­lage.
