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.”
