Seafood and herbs from the Gold Coast and surrounding areas will be the stars of a culinary demonstration this week that will show why produce across the state is important in creating authentic Queensland tourism experiences.
Gold Coast tiger prawns from Pacifica Seafood Market, and fresh mint and flower petals from Sunshine Herbs in Logan Village will feature in the gourmet demonstration – part of a wider roadshow touring Queensland talking about jobs, training, and procurement opportunities with integrated resort company, The Star Entertainment Group.
In Queensland, the company operates the Treasury Casino & Hotel in Brisbane and Jupiters Gold Coast in Broadbeach, which recently hit the halfway mark on a 17-storey hotel tower being built at the front of the existing property – the first six-star hotel on the Gold Coast in more than 15 years.
The company is also the lead partner in the Destination Brisbane Consortium, which will deliver the multi-billion dollar Queen’s Wharf Brisbane integrated resort development expected to open in Brisbane’s CBD in 2022.
Jupiters Gold Coast Executive Chef Dustin Osuch will have the 200+ crowd salivating over Gold Coast tiger prawn cakes, pea tendril salad, garlic chive crème fraiche, and macadamia nuts.
Born in Chicago, Mr Osuch is looking forward to showcasing why he has loved working in his current role on the Gold Coast for the past three years.
