RE­GIONAL FLAVOURS TURNS 10

CALL­ING ALL FOOD­IES – IT’S AL­MOST THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN. ON JULY 21-22, YOUR FAVOURITE CELEBRITY CHEFS, FOOD STALLS AND LIVE PER­FOR­MANCES WILL TRANS­FORM BRIS­BANE’S SOUTH­BANK PRECINCT INTO A HUB OF ALL THINGS TASTY FOR THE TENTH YEAR IN A ROW.

It’s the Sun­shine State’s ‘must do’ food and wine fes­ti­val and, this year, Re­gional Flavours will pack a se­ri­ous punch. With a fo­cus on all things fresh, the free fes­ti­val is a unique cel­e­bra­tion of Queens­land’s best eats and drinks and truly has some­thing for ev­ery­one.

An im­pres­sive line-up of celebrity chefs and cook­book au­thors – we’re talk­ing ev­ery­one from Masterchef Aus­tralia’s Gary Me­hi­gan and The Liv­ing Room’s Miguel Maestre to Sarah ‘I Quit Su­gar’ Wil­son and Jes­sica Se­pel – will de­scend upon Bris­bane for the week­end of July 21-22, do­ing cook­ing demon­stra­tions, talks and book sign­ings.

One must-try bev­er­age at this year’s fes­ti­val? Merlo Cof­fee and For­ti­tude Brew­ing Co.’s ground-break­ing new prod­uct, the Pot Shot Ale. A beer-cof­fee hy­brid, the fruity flavours of the Kenyan cof­fee bean bal­ances against the beer for a drink that has to be sipped to be be­lieved.

“Drinkers will get more of a cof­fee af­ter­taste with Pot Shot Ale than a big, bold punch of cof­fee flavour,” says Dean Merlo, founder of Merlo.

As the day wears on, you can swap your cof­fee-flavoured beer for a cock­tail at the popup river­side bar, wan­der down the rows of street mar­ket stalls for a bite to eat. With so much to see, do and taste, make sure you’re up-to-date on all things Re­gional Flavours.
