Feast on the fresh flavours at The Curated Palte from Sunshine Coast Food Festival with a rich menu of 85 events from 28 July to 6 August.

The Curated Plate Sunshine Coast Food Festival

The Curated Plate brings local restaurants, top chefs, farms and event operators together with ten days of amazing events on the Sunshine Coast just north of Brisbane. The events are located all over the Sunshine Coast, from Maleny to Eumundi and Caloundra to Coolum. They are well priced, too, with opportunities to experience some of the coast’s best-loved fine diners, such as Spicer’s Tamarind and Harry’s on Buderim.

My favourite event from last year?  Well, that would have to be the Trawler to Table Cruise. It marries Mooloolaba’s love of cruising and maritime activities with its natural partner, the region’s incredible seafood produce, right where it is harvested. It includes a scenic river cruise where you stop at Mooloolaba fisheries to sample those famous prawns you’ve seen on so many menus and lunch at the waterfront See Restaurant.

It wouldn’t be a Sunshine Coast Food Festival without seafood, I admit to being more than a little seafood obsessed. These are my top seafood-focused from last year events.

  5. Best value – A Nautically Curated Lunch Menu at The Nautical. Two courses for $50 with a glass of wine. Available Wednesday to Sunday throughout the Curated Side Plate 2022

Sunshine Coast Food Festival Masterclasses

Masterclasses are a great way to learn more about the things you love, especially when they involve eating and drinking.

Here are my five festival faves –

  1. Master growing gourmet mushrooms at home.
  2. Join Brouhaha Maleny’s lead brewer, Thijmen, for the ‘Brewer for a Day’. This is a hands-on experience where you’ll learn how to craft great beer.

  5. Cocktail Master Class with Paradise Rum.
