Food, glo­ri­ous food and no short­age of it

Isis Town and Country - - News - By MELINDA BRAD­FORD

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.

Keep an eye out for this pas­sion­ate food lover whose sweets and pas­tries, in­clud­ing baklava, halva,

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.
