Good Food and Wine Show
Alicia Moo | On 08, Nov 2013
You could sell anything to me with two words: free samples.
Throw the word food in there and I would climb mountains to get there.
The Good Food and Wine Show starts today and it has everything and anything a foodie would ever want.
Held at the Brisbane Convention Centre this slice of heaven will have you stomach deep in free food samples, wine tastings and celebrity chefs charming their way into your hearts (or stomachs).
This year we are blessed, neigh, honoured to have the gorgeous, loveliest of Australian cooks in our presence, the all smiling, all brilliant Maggie Beer.
I often have dreams that I would awaken to her country kitchen with her roast chicken and lashings of the simple life spread amongst a family dinner table and her at the head talking of passions, life and the goodness of food.
So now I get a little slice of that dream. (Note: Maggie will have two sessions in the celebrity theatre today only!)
There will be cheese from 14 regions across Australia, a coffee masterclass with Nespresso and the Riedel wine theatre guided by a panel of fine wine experts who will take you on a journey of vineyard education.
Then thereâ€™s The Chopping Block where you can pick up some tips from celebrity chefs, thereâ€™s kitchen and appliance demonstrations, book signings and yes free food samples at every turn.
Best of all thereâ€™s The Celebrity Theatre where well known chefs grace the stage with cooking demonstrations and entertain you with their knowledge, skill and talent.
If it is anything like previous years these sessions can get interactive and are always delicious.
This year the theatre will be graced with Maggie Beer, Miguel Maestre, Matt Moran, Alistair McLeod, Matt Golinski and Anna Gare.
Thereâ€™s competitions to enter and countless foods and tastes to be discovered.
Iâ€™m getting hungry just writing about it!
