Food, glorious food and no shortage of it
LET your tastebuds do the walking this weekend at the 2014 Childers Festival.
On the festival’s main day that closes the highway on Sunday, the Childers Festival will serve an incredible variety of flavours – sweet, savoury, sour, hot and spicy – at nearly a hundred food and drink stalls.
There are the annual favourites with Mammino’s Gourmet Ice-cream, traditional German sausages, Indian and Ando’s Potato Slinkeys.
New in 2014 is Ilias the Greek.

nougat and pastelli, are all based on traditional family recipes.
Last year’s festival favourite’s Dan and Steph, 2013 My Kitchen Rules winners, will be back and cooking up a storm for you to enjoy on Sunday.
Steph and Dan, who presented cooking demonstrations at last year’s festival, said they were looking forward to holding a stall this year.
“It’s one of the best festivals in Queensland – it will be a great day,” Steph said.
“It’s great to be a part of the festival. We’ve never actually served food at the festival.
“We’re looking forward to serving food to customers that can’t make it down to our own restaurant.”
The talented cooks will be serving up their tasty gourmet sausages – Dan’s very own pork and fennel variety, served in a delicious baguette, complete with secret ingredients in what they say leads to a “flavour explosion”.
The pair are expecting to be run off their feet on Sunday.
