FLAVOURS OF THE CHILDERS REGION TEMPT TASTEBUDS AT BUNDY FLAVOURS FESTIVAL
Food lovers treated to our region’s finest produce
FLAVOURS of the Childers region have tempted the tastebuds of food lovers at the annual Bundy Flavours event.
Mammino’s, Hill of Promise Winery and Vintner's Secret Vineyard represented the region strongly at the weekend festival.
Mammino’s co-owner Teena Mammino said the event was great for her business.
“It was really, really good for us,” she said.
Hill of Promise co-owner Mary Byrne said her business had a “reasonably successful” day at the Bundy Flavours event.
Mrs Byrne said it was a little disappointing that the food and wine stalls were separated at the event.
“But generally speaking, it was a successful day for us,” she said.
Mrs Byrne said the day was also a good networking day with other stall holders.
“We got to know what else is in the culinary circle in Bundaberg,” Mrs Byrne said.
She said the event title was an apt description of what the day was all about.
“It’s about showcasing what’s on offer in our region,” she said.
Vintner's Secret Vineyard co-owner Marianne Lethbridge said the event was a great success for her business.
“It’s quite rewarding in a business sense because you do sell a lot of wine,” Mrs Lethbridge said.
“And it’s an extremely useful way for the region to know what’s inside itself.”
Mrs Lethridge said she was able to meet likeminded community members and business people.
“You meet people who are passionate and proud about what we do in this area,” she said.
LUNCH TIME: Kirsty Hitchins and Megan Vassie enjoy the food and drinks on offer at the Bundy Flavours Festival.
