A feast fit for the royals

The Curated Plate connects producers, chefs and consumers at a range of unique events, including Dining Under The Stars and a Royal Feast of Opera.

People are starting to think and consume differently – there is a lot more interest in the meaning of local food and a desire to reduce food miles. Reconnecting with nature and the search for freshness, taste and authenticity are all part of that motivation, along with supporting local producers.

The Curated Plate’s Destination Series presents a menu of new and unique dining experiences that will celebrate the connection between the love of local produce, exquisite food and soulful music, including two elegant events on August 10.

For a night Dining Under The Stars at Flaxton Gardens, chef Alan Thompson has created an inspired three-course gala banquet focussing on produce of the region. Each dish has a story to tell of provenance featuring the freshest of local ingredients highlighting some of our produce superstars.

If you are missing Game of Thrones and looking for some medieval vibes, you might prefer a Royal Feast of Opera and fine dining in the Sunshine Castle. Chef Simon Wallace draws on the Sunshine Coast’s finest local producers to create an opulent pasture-to-plate four-course feast with a medieval twist, while some of the world’s most adored arias and operas are performed, challenging the incredible acoustics of the castle’s Great Hall with melody and music.

Flora, fauna and bush food

If you are looking for a heart-warming experience and a new appreciation for our local landscape and Indigenous culture, Experience Eumundi welcomes you.

Gubbi Gubbi Dance will welcome you to country, and Kabi Kabi Custodian Lyndon Davis will share stories of the Eumundi region at a special event on August 9.

Learn about seasonal indicators of flora and fauna and their ancient creation stories, Indigenous plant uses and local Kabi Kabi history, and Indigenous perspectives of caring for country and custodianship and the bush food calendar.

Leave with a greater feeling of identity and belonging to country, and learn of our responsibility and roles as the new custodians of this great land.
