Isis Town and Country - - News -

AV­O­CADO and man­darin from the Wide Bay Burnett re­gion will be the stars of a Queens­land dessert to be cre­ated in Mary­bor­ough to­day, giv­ing lo­cals a sweet taste of why re­gional pro­duce is im­por­tant in cre­at­ing au­then­tic Queens­land ex­pe­ri­ences for lo­cals and visi­tors to the state.

Trea­sury Casino & Ho­tel Sous Chef Lau­ren Curmi will whet ap­petites with an av­o­cado and cho­co­late mousse fea­tur­ing a wat­tle­seed ganache, gin­ger and macadamia crumb, and spiced citrus us­ing man­darin from the fam­ily-owned Ab­bot­sleigh Citrus lo­cated near Gin Gin.

The culi­nary demonstration is part of a road­show tour­ing Queens­land talk­ing about jobs, train­ing, and pro­cure­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties with in­te­grated re­sort com­pany, The Star En­ter­tain­ment Group.

“While I grew up in Bris­bane and spent a lot of time in my grand­mother’s bak­ery, I’ve al­ways had a soft spot for re­gional Queens­land as it’s where I first got my foot in the door at the age of 15, lead­ing to where I am to­day en­joy­ing the sweet life as head of Trea­sury’s pas­try kitchen,” Mrs Curmi said.

“At Trea­sury, we seek to find the best and fresh­est pro­duce right across the state to high­light in our di­verse of­fer­ings and a lot of it comes from the Wide Bay Burnett re­gion in­clud­ing oranges, zuc­chini, sweet pota­toes, cap­sicums, and toma­toes.

“We know that lo­cals and visi­tors want to ex­pe­ri­ence high qual­ity, au­then­tic, and lo­cal Queens­land flavours – that’s what cre­ates spe­cial me­mories for them and keeps them com­ing back.”
