International chef Sat Bains joins Noosa Food and Wine Festival line-up
This year’s Noosa Food and Wine Festival program has been extended with the addition of four new events.
International chef, Sat Bains, will host Up Close and Personal with Sat Bains, cooking dinner for 12 people at Wasabi on Saturday 20 May. Bains will talk about the food, joining his guests for dinner. Vanya Cullen will also attend the dinner, with Cullen Wines being matched to each course.
Bains and his wife, Amanda, are the proprietors of Restaurant – Sat Bains, in Nottingham, UK, a two star Michelin restaurant serving modern British cuisine. In the past decade, the restaurant has also achieved five Rosettes from the AA and 9 out of 10 in the Good Food Guide.
On Friday 19 May, Geoff Lindsay will also host a dinner for 12 people at Wasabi. Lindsay, the chef behind modern Vietnamese restaurant Dandelion in Melbourne, will prepare six courses matched with wines from Yangarra.
Adriano Zumbo is bringing A Sweet Soiree to Noosa Boathouse on Sunday 21 May. Zumbo will create four sweet courses, which will be perfectly accompanied with French Champagne by Louis Roderer.
“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,” said festival director Maria Crews.
At the Urban Winery with Dan Sims and Mike Bennie at Peppers Noosa Resort & Villas, Sims and Benniw will host a number of talks across the festival weekend, with sessions including Pinot Palooza; The Butcher, The Brewer, The Booze Maker; and Where the Wild Wines Are.
“For wine fanatics and those who deem themselves less knowledgeable on the wine front, these events should definitely be on your festival hit list,” said Crews.
More than seventy events featuring more than 50 wineries and 100 food producers, will take place across the four-day event, which will run from 18 until 21 May. A total of 45 visiting chefs from across Australia will attend the festival.
