Good Food Month returns with red-hot feasts, beloved pop-ups and Middle Eastern delicacies
Prepare your tastebuds, foodies, as beloved culinary festival Good Food Month presented by Citi is returning to Brisbane this July with a series of unmissable epicurean experiences. Fiery feasts, plant-based delights, pop-up restaurants and much more will be taking over our city, so you had better start clearing your calendar.
Celebrating its eighth year running, Good Food Month is set to bring together some of Australia’s biggest names in the culinary industry for a celebration of the senses. This year’s roster of special events is truly something to behold with a focus on home-grown talent, local produce and culinary collaborations. So, what’s on the cards? Alanna Sapwell will bring her popular pop-up restaurant Esmay back to Brisbane after touring the country, Ben Williamson’s woodfired Valley restaurant Agnes will be heating things up when Dave Verheul (of hatted Embla) visits to cook up a fiery feast, and Stanley Restaurant’s head chef Louis Tikaram will oversee a gifted group of fresh-faced chefs as they whip up a mouth-watering four-course lunch at Howard Smith Wharves.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg, friends. The foodie fun continues when flavour expert Shane Delia joins forces with Adam Wolfers at Gerard’s Bistro for a tastebud-tempting Middle Eastern feast, while vegan queen Shannon Martinez will gift us with a tantalising plant-based menu at ZA ZA TA – count us in! The Friends of Good Food Month series also returns with a lip-smacking line-up of dining experiences at some of our favourite dining destinations – think Montrachet, Libertine, Three Blue Ducks, Popolo, The Balfour Kitchen, Naga Thai, OTTO, Motorwagen, Gerard’s Bar and many more. In very exciting news, The Brisbane Night Noodle Markets will also be making its triumphant return after last year’s hiatus.
Starving for a taste? Tickets to Good Food Month will go on sale at 9:00 am this Thursday May 27. You can grab tickets to all the flavoursome Good Food Month events (and browse the rest of the jam-packed program) at the official website.
