Celebrity chef, Miguel Maestre has today officially launched Moreton Bay Food + Wine Festival, South East Queensland’s largest, tastiest and most delicious celebration of food.

Festival headliner Miguel Maestre says he can’t wait to introduce South East Queensland to the joys of Spanish food.

“My passion is incorporating Spanish ingredients and cooking styles into Australian menus, and that’s exactly what I’ll be showcasing throughout the festival,” Miguel says.

“Last year’s event was outrageous fun and I can’t wait to make it bigger, better and bolder in August. It’s going to be spectacular.”

Moreton Bay Regional Council Mayor Peter Flannery says Moreton Bay Food + Wine Festival is the number one foodie destination on the culinary calendar.

“We have Australia’s best produce and the nation’s most daring talent,” Mayor Flannery says.

“The world-famous Food + Wine Festival will be a feast for the senses.

“Moreton Bay’s subtropical climate offers a bounty of produce, from pineapples and raspberries to shellfish and beef and they will all be showcased by Australia’s best chefs over three amazing days.”

Big line-up of celebrity chefs

Moreton Bay Region Industry & Tourism CEO and Founder Shane Newcombe says the who’s who of Australia’s celebrity chefs will be cooking up a storm at the festival.

“In addition to Miguel Maestre, Poh Ling Yeow, Alastair McLeod, Dominique Rizzo and Kim McCosker will be making tastebuds salivate,” Mr Newcombe says.

“The three-day Food + Wine Festival is Moreton Bay on a plate, and it’s going to be delicious.

“The festival site will span a kilometre along the Woody Point foreshore, include six precincts, countless experiences, dozens of masterclasses and live music.”

The three-day Moreton Bay Food + Wine Feastival will transform Apex Park at Woody Point, on the Redcliffe peninsula.
