Noosa Food & Wine Festival 2017 Announces Brand New Events to Its Already Impressive Program – And They’re On Sale Now

If you thought things couldn’t get any tastier at this year’s Noosa Food and Wine Festival, then let your tastebuds think again!  The already impressive festival program has been extended with the addition of four brand new events.

Internationally renowned chef, Sat Bains, will host Up Close and Personal with Sat Bains, an intimate dinner for 12 people at Wasabi on Saturday 20th May, personally cooked by the man himself.  Recognised by fellow chefs and food writers from all over the world, for his innovative style of cuisine, Sat will talk about the food as he serves up a culinary masterpiece before joining his guests for dinner.  Vanya Cullen will also join Sat at dinner, with Cullen Wines being matched to each course.

Sat and his wife, Amanda, are the proprietors of Restaurant – Sat Bains, in Nottingham, UK, a two star Michelin restaurant serving modern British cuisine, with eight bedrooms.  In the past decade, the restaurant has also garnered the ultimate 5 Rosettes from the AA and 9 out of 10 in the Good Food Guide.

Also taking the reigns at Wasabi and hosting an intimate dinner for 12 people, will be chef, Geoff Lindsay.  On Friday 19th May, Geoff will prepare six courses matched with wines from Yangarra.  Geoff is the chef behind Dandelion, a modern Vietnamese restaurant in Melbourne.

For those with a sweet tooth, Adriano Zumbo is bringing A Sweet Soiree to Noosa Boathouse on Sunday 21st May.  Hosted by the genius who made us all fall in love with macarons, Zumbo will create four sweet courses which will be perfectly accompanied with French Champagne by Louis Roderer.

Festival Director, Maria Crews, says the brand new foodie events add an extra touch of deliciousness to this year’s festival program.

“We’re so excited about the new foodie events that have been added to our festival program this year.  We’re thrilled to welcome Sat Bains from the UK – guests are in for a real treat and ultimate foodie experience at the intimate dinners at Wasabi with Sat and Geoff.  Not to mention, the addition of Zumbo’s Sweet Soiree event – this year’s festival just got a whole lot sweeter!”

Wine lovers will also be indulged at the Urban Winery with Dan Sims and Mike Bennie at Peppers Noosa Resort & Villas.  Dan and Mike will take the wine master class and turn it into a fun and engaging session.  Sip on wine, chat to the winemakers and enjoy a fun, open and informative take on wine from the experts – with less wine wankery.

“The Urban Winery events with Dan and Mike are what wine dreams are made of.  For wine fanatics and those who deem themselves less knowledgeable on the wine front, these events should definitely be on your festival hit list,” added Maria.

More than seventy events will take place across the four-day event, which will run from 18th until 21st May.  A total of 45 visiting chefs from Australia’s best restaurants will flock to this year’s festival, which will have a presence across two festival villages – Noosa Main Beach and The Woods.  Noosa’s top restaurants will also enjoy local collaborations as they play host to a number of visiting chefs.

With more than 50 wineries and 100 food producers taking part in this year’s festival, there really is something to suit every tastebud and budget – 13,000 tickets will go on sale across a range of events, with more than 40% of the tickets priced at less than $40.
