Tastes of the Gold Coast

Well it feels like ages since I actually put up a proper food post. Loads of things have been happening in Brisbane in the meantime, like the Brisbane Festival, the Masterclass Weekend and plenty of wine events.

One that I haven't yet missed is the upcoming Tastes of the Gold Coast Festival. It's running from 22 August until 7 September 2008.

There are loads of events happening, which you can check out on the website. It's great to see that many of the events are focused around local produce and wines. A few of the events that caught my eye were:

French Food & Fashion - Friday 29 August 2008 at 12pm at Absynthe - Indulge in haute cuisine created by Michelin-rated French Chef Meyjitte Boughenout and be tempted by haute couture from a leading fashion house - $55.

A La Carte on the Beach - Sunday 24 August 2008 from 10am to 4pm at Queen Elizabeth Park, Coolangatta - A food and wine festival by Coolangatta beach featuring a vast array of cuisine from around the world.

Slow Food Bazaar - Sunday 31 August 2008 from 10am to 4pm at Karnak Restaurant, Mount Tamborine - Enjoy tasting platters of spit-roasted lamb and slow food's innovative cuisine. Buy local plants, fresh organic produce and sample some of Australia's finest dukkah, olives, jams, chutneys, avocados and other gourmet delights

Chocolate High Tea - Friday 22 August 2008 at 10am at Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa - Featuring a live demonstration by renowned chocolatier, Belgian Delights, this morning of sweet sensations is guaranteed to satisfy the most fastidious chocolate connoisseur - $70.

So if you need an excuse to head down the coast during the middle of winter, there are plenty to take your pick from during the festival.
