Prepare your tastebuds because this July Good Food Month presented by Citi is returning to Brisbane.
Back for its eighth year running, the festival will bring together some of Australia’s biggest culinary names for a month of foodie events, kitchen takeovers and collaborations.
The focus this year is to shine a light on home-grown talent and exceptional local produce. So what’s on the line-up? Or should we say, menu?
What’s on during Brisbane Good Food Month
Queensland local Alanna Sapwell will bring her popular pop-up restaurant Esmay back to Brisbane after touring the country. She will be setting up at The Alliance Hotel on Sunday 25 July.
Ben Williamson’s fire-fuelled Agnes will be welcoming Melbourne’s own master of fire, Dave Verheul of hatted Embla. The pair will be heating things up with a menu that celebrates elemental cooking on Monday 26 July.
