Logan offers flavours to savour

The tastes of Logan will be on show in Brisbane this weekend for the Regional Flavours food and wine festival.

Combining celebrity chefs, industry experts and free entertainment, Regional Flavours is a celebration of quality produce held over two days at Brisbane’s Southbank Parklands.

City Image Chairperson, Councillor Laurie Smith, said the event’s big name attractions provided an excellent opportunity for City of Logan producers to showcase their products.

“People from all over the country come to see presentations by some of Australia’s most recognisable food industry names like Maggie Beer and George Calombaris at this event so it provides great exposure to our local businesses,” he said.

“On Sunday, nutritionist Lola Berry will use ingredients from a couple of our local producers during her presentation while Springwood’s Grandma’s Kiwi Kitchen will be serving up a special Hangi stack using local produce too.”

Logan City Council will also have a stall at the event where it will give people a chance to spin the chocolate wheel and win prizes like a family day trip to pick strawberries at the Berry Patch.

Cr Smith said the event was also an opportunity to promote tourism in Logan.

“We don’t just want people to enjoy the taste of a strawberry from the Berry Patch or herbs from Riverview Herbs, we want them to come to the city and see where it is grown and discover our great farms and producers.”

Regional Flavours is completely free to attend for all ages and, held over Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 July, include a producer market with 80 stallholders from across Queensland, live music, beer, wine, kids’ activities and more.
