Win an unforgettable foodie experience with celebrity chef Alastair McLeod

Posted: 9am 04 Aug 2022

How would you like to have a delicious meal cooked for you by one of Australia’s most-loved chefs?

Moreton Bay’s very own celebrity chef Alastair McLeod, who is well-known for his appearances on Ready Steady Cook and Queensland Weekender, will be cooking up a storm as part of this year’s Tastes of Moreton Bay Feastival, which runs from August 19 to September 25.

The team behind the Tastes of Moreton Bay Feastival is giving foodies the chance to choose one of three ultimate feastival experiences with Alastair.

Here are the three lucky prizes up for grabs:

Bribie Seafood Boil Weekend Experience

From the banks of the Mississippi to the foreshore of Pumicestone passage, Alastair will host the first-ever Bribie Seafood Boil on Father’s Day (Sunday, September 4).

A long communal table will be set up at Brennan Park to celebrate communal dining and the region’s freshest seafood.

Alastair promises a ‘cracking, sucking, and slurping’ good time as diners dig into fresh tiger prawns, sand crab, Moreton Bay bugs and mussels.

They will start off with a shellfish broth, followed by the main event presented directly from the pot to the table, served with bottomless fries, assorted sauces, lemons and pickled local vegetables.

The prize includes two tickets to the Bribie Seafood Broil plus overnight accommodation at On the Bay Apartments at Bribie Island.

Samford Harvest Weekend Experience

The Samford Harvest (winter) event is a celebration of local produce grown in the Samford Valley and the surrounding region, and will be held on Friday, August 26.

Guests are invited to share a table and enjoy a meal in an idyllic barn located at Loop Growers, just a few minutes from Samford Village.

The menu is thoughtfully created and produced Alastair, who is a Samford local.

Some of the tasty menu items include seared eye fillet of beef with horseradish and crispy rosti, slow-cooked salmon with zucchini, snow peas and bauplenut salad, as well as white chocolate parfait with gin and honey roasted strawberries.

The prize includes two tickets to the Samford Harvest, plus overnight accommodation at the Eatons Hill Hotel.
