New Tweed Foodies Guide an Appetising Invitation to Eat, Drink and Be Merry!

Good food and drink is a way of life in the Tweed region of northern NSW and a new Foodies Guide, launched by the Tweed Tourism Company, celebrates the region’s many producers and provides a flavour-filled menu of future inspiration for travelling locavores.

The Tweed Foodies Guide shines a light on the region’s farm-fresh produce, award-winning restaurants, evolving eateries and growing number of drink-makers, from gin and beer to tea and coffee.

The first of its kind for the region, the Tweed Foodies Guide features over 50 food and drink providores, profiles local restaurateurs, shares recipes for Tweed tastes to try at home and charts a range of drive itineraries, from seaside flavour trails to a three-day inland grazing journey.

Tweed Tourism Company GM, Bradley Nardi, said that the Tweed has long been regarded as a rich food bowl, with the new guide designed to showcase this gourmet offering and open people’s eyes and appetites to all that the Tweed has to offer food and drink-lovers.

“When it comes to eating and drinking, we have it all here in the Tweed – we grow, harvest, distil, brew, prepare and share our local provenance all year-round and, when paired with the region’s skilled and passionate chefs, the flavours of our region truly come to life.”

“The Tweed is home to many iconic foodie highlights, including Tropical Fruit World and Husk Distillers, as well as highly awarded restaurants such as Pipit, Paper Daisy and Fins – our new guide builds on this profile while unearthing some hidden Tweed gems, from a coffee plantation, tea estate and bush tucker farm, to hinterland high teas and hand-crafted local pasture cheeses.”

Blessed with an innate richness of soil, generous sunshine and healthy rainfall, the Tweed’s coast to country landscapes produce seasonal foods to tempt all taste-buds.

From hinterland crops and pastures come plentiful fruits and vegetables, cane sugar, dairy milk and creamy cheeses, grass-fed meats and free-ranging chook eggs; while from the sea and myriad waterways are sourced both salt and freshwater fish, oysters, mud and spanner crabs.

The Tweed is also humming with a new wave of flavours, with baristas making their mark out of hip bolt-holes, welcoming spaces serving wholesome food bowls and healthy juices and fresh new takes on global flavours, from Mexican taquerias and cantinas to Greek and Italian menus crafted by country-folk who now call the Tweed home.

The Tweed Foodies Guide, the latest in a suite of recent releases by the Tweed Tourism Company that includes the Official Visitors Guide and Tweed Hinterland Drives, also highlights local food and farmers markets, annual events and a range of immersive experiences from seafood cruises and orchard visits to catered outdoor picnics, farm trails and behind-the-scenes craft beer and gin distillery tours.
