Announcing the Taste of Queensland Awards winners

We put the call out in early May for nominations for the Taste of Queensland Awards and are now excited to present to you the winners in each category of breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and cocktail. See, The Weekend Edition loves it when a Brisbane bar or restaurant serves up a culinary creation or cocktail using the best of Queensland produce – so much so that it jumped at the chance to partner with the Queensland Government for Queensland Week from June 4–12. The Taste of Queensland Awards celebrates the use of Queensland produce and recognises the support of local farmers, providores, bakers, brewers and gourmet artisans by Brisbane’s cafes, restaurants and bars. Congratulations to all of the winners and runners up in the inaugural awards! more
