Real Food Festival
We went to Maleny on the weekend to attend the Real Food Festival - read more on my Healthy Farming Healthy Food Blog. We met some interesting food producers - the Sunshine Coast is lucky to have so much food on their doorstep! We bought and taste tested some Kidaman Beef. They are a fairly new business to the local food market down that way and we were VERY impressed with their quality and professionalism. We enjoyed their rump steak and sausages one night and then a Mussaman Curry with round steak the next. Absolutely Great!! We also visited a Fejoa stand. When the Owner/Producer said that their Fejoa White Balsamic Glaze was great with pork, well we just had to buy some! (I'm yet to try that) Hopefully we've also made some good contacts for our own produce. Other great products included: olives, honey, bananas, coffee, dairy, fresh fruit and veg, as well as products produced locally - jams, cheese, bread, chutney, jam and sauces - just so much food! If you're in the Sunshine Coast region, try and support these businesses and other local food producers. I also wonder if we can do something like this in our Region of Central Queensland - we also have some great food products!
